Former Timbers player Danny Mwanga is now a U.S. citizen.

Immigration officials swore in a group of new U.S. citizens in Northwest Portland on Monday.

Mwanga is from the Democratic Republic of Congo. He came to the states in 2006 to join his family.

He was recently traded from the Timbers to the Colorado Rapids.

The Timbers traded Mwanga to the Rapids in exchange for a first round draft pick.
