Los Angeles man becomes US citizen at 102
LOS ANGELES (KGO) -- A Los Angeles area man waited a while to make it official, but he just became an American citizen at the age of 102.
Joaquin Arciago Guzman is in rare company. Only 27 people have become U.S. citizens after turning 100-years-old in the last 50 years. Arciago Guzman's journey to citizenship included a few moves between his native Philippines and the U.S. His family came to America for good in 1984.
His wife and two adult children then became citizens, but it remains a family mystery why he didn't do so then.
