Los Alamos resident Victoria Rygh of Honduras will be among the 68 New Mexico residents representing 29 countries who will become U.S. citizens today in Albuquerque.
Rygh has lived in Los Alamos for five years and works at Los Alamos Medical Center.
U.S. Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico will deliver the keynote address for the naturalization ceremony. The ceremony, to be held at the South Broadway Cultural Center, will celebrate the naturalization of these citizens – the process by which U.S. citizenship is granted to a foreign citizen or national after he or she fulfills the requirements established by Congress in the Immigration and Nationality Act.
An official representing the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services will administer the oath of allegiance to the new citizens.
