Under the cliffs of Frijoles Canyon in Bandelier National Monument, 15 immigrants were sworn in as U.S. citizens during a naturalization ceremony on the Fourth of July.
This past month, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services awarded the Bandelier incident command team the USCIS Directors Award for Partnerships to recognize their work and collaboration with the USCIS in making this event a very special ceremony.
“It was an honor to represent not only Bandelier and the park team that facilitated the Citizenship Ceremony, but also to represent the National Park Service at the USCIS Director’s Award presentation,” said Chief Ranger Tom Betts, after receiving the award on behalf of the team in Washington D.C.
More than 100 people attended the citizenship ceremony including a representative from Sen. Jeff Bingaman’s office. The National Park Service worked with the Boy Scouts, the local opera guild, the Rotary Club, county officials and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to provide a once in a lifetime experience for the new U.S. citizens.
