Councilor Borrego Attends Naturalization Proceedings Ceremony

197 individuals are now U.S. citizens

For the first time, City Councilor Cynthia Borrego, attended a "Naturalization Proceedings Ceremony" with The Honorable US Magistrate Court Judge Steven Yarbrough, and The Honorable NM Chief Court of Appeals Judge Linda Vanzi. 197 new U.S. citizens from 47 countries were granted United States citizenship at the Naturalization Ceremony. Councilor Borrego was humbled by the gratitude expressed by our new U.S. citizens and the gifts of citizenship we so often take for granted. She thanked Bernalillo County Clerk Linda Stover for the invitation to be a part of this moving celebration and experience.

The Oath-taking ceremony is for individuals that have completed the process for becoming a U.S. citizen.
