WASHINGTON COUNTY - Turn on a television news channel, and it's likely that within minutes, the hot-button topic of illegal immigration is raised. Crack open a newspaper, and the headlines will mention building a fence along the border with Mexico, paving a path for illegal immigrants to obtain citizenship and declaring English the nation's official language. Locally, it's likely there are illegal immigrants in the area - they might be working construction or picking seasonal fruits and vegetables - but it's anyone's guess as to how many call the Tri-State area home.

It's not easy. Citizenship is not a right. It is not automatic. "It is something to be earned," Bentley said. Requirements include legal residence and good moral character, according to the agency's Web site at uscis.gov . Applicants must show that they are "attached" to the principles of the Constitution.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Nine people from eight countries on four continents took different paths to achieve the same goal Tuesday night: United States citizenship. A beaming Herta Rosa Aguirre, of Chambersburg, brought perhaps the biggest cheering section of all those who took the oath at the Franklin County Courthouse. Her husband John, Franklin County's human resources director, was on hand for the ceremony with five of their 10 children. She and John met in Germany when he was in the Army 30 years ago. They lived in both countries over the years before coming to Chambersburg in 1993.
