Littleton to Host Naturalization Ceremony

Littleton to Host Naturalization Ceremony

On Wednesday night, more than 35 citizenship candidates will take the Oath of Allegiance in Littleton to become citizens of the United States.

 

According to a city press release, the ceremony is hosted by the Littleton Immigrant Resources Center(LIRC), along with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

 

Twenty-eight of the candidates, representing 10 countries, participated in the LIRC Citizenship Program. The youngest candidate is 21 and there are several who are older than 65.

 

“Citizenship has been a goal for many of these people since they came to the United States,” said Petula McShiras, LIRC Supervisor recently. “It opens doors and opportunities that are only available to citizens, including voting, holding political office and certain job opportunities. Once they become a citizen, they feel like they belong here and that they can finally call the United States their ‘home.’”

 

The ceremony is open to the public and scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 17 in the Littleton Center Council Chambers, 2255 W. Berry Ave.
