Naturalization Ceremony in Colorado Springs


COLORADO SPRINGS — 40 new United States citzens can now offically call Colorado ‘home’, after a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services ceremony Monday morning at Pikes Peak Library 21-C.

The library offers several no-cost adult education courses that follow the path to citizenship and prepare students for the citizenship test.

And students say the program is pretty helpful.

“I encourage people to come take the class. [You] get to learn everything from the constitution to history,” Mexican-American Interpreter Jezabel Riveria said. “This is my home and I love being here. It’s just a great feeling to become a U.S. citizen and I’m happy.”

Some of the new citizens come from countries like Barbuda, Cameroon, Columbia, India, and Honduras.
