GOSHEN - Eighty-eight immigrants from 45 countries took an oath in Goshen Thursday to take the final step in becoming United States citizens.

It marked a special day for them, but some said anti-immigrant rhetoric from President-elect Donald Trump was weighing on their minds.

"The fact that he was being really, really racist about it, it kind of got to me because obviously I'm from a Spanish country," said Katherine Hernandez, who is originally from Honduras. "Let's just hope that he really does his job as a good president. Let's just hope that."

County Executive Steve Neuhaus, who is the son of immigrants, was on hand for the naturalization ceremony.
