House Democrats to speak at military members’ naturalization ceremony

State Capitol hosts its first naturalization ceremony

STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Democratic Leader David Lujan and Rep. Lynne Pancrazi, D-Yuma (District 24) will speak at a special naturalization ceremony for three active duty military service members on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. on the House floor.

It is the first ever naturalization ceremony to be held at the Capitol in Arizona.

“Service to one’s country is a strong American value,” Lujan said. “These service men and women risk their lives for our country and it is an honor to host their naturalization at the state Capitol.”

Two members of the U.S. Air Force and one member of the U.S. Marine Corps will state the Oath of Allegiance and be sworn in as U.S. citizens.

“It is an absolute privilege to witness our outstanding service men and women become citizens,” Pancrazi said. “Their dedication and loyalty to the United States and Arizona truly is admirable.”
