The news was confirmed by Barret himself from his official Twitter account, where he uploaded a photo along with the document awarding him as a US citizen. After thirteen and a half years residing in this great nation, today I have received my United States citizenship, said Barret.
Thank you to everyone who supported this English guy. Except for the world cups, I will continue to support this nation in whatever way I can. A toast to life, freedom, and the possibility of happiness.
