Join us in celebration of Citizenship Day (9/17) at this week’s naturalization ceremony in Grand Junction! New United States citizens will be officially naturalized at the ceremony, which will be held in the Colorado National Monument at 10:00 am. The event is free to attend and open to the public.
Hispanic Affairs Project (HAP) is partnering with USCIS, the Colorado Court, and the National Monument in organizing the ceremony to welcome these New Americans. In fact, on of these proud New Americans received assistance in navigating the citizenship application process from HAP! Keep on reading to learn more about our Immigration Legal Assistance Program and how you can get help in becoming a new citizen.
The naturalization ceremony is one of 316 that will take place across the country between September 13-23, in celebration of Citizenship Day and Constitution Week, according to USCIS. More than 34,000 new citizens will be welcomed during these 316 ceremonies. Last year, more than 750,000 people were naturalized by USCIS, which was a five-year-high in new citizenship oaths.
