CARSON CITY — At least 39 of Nevada’s immigrants will be treated to a truly American experience on Saturday as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers naturalize them during the Carson City Rendezvous opening ceremonies.

The event is a celebration of Nevada’s history and includes a Civil War re-enactment, a Native American village, a mountain man encampment, stage coach, Pony Express riders, Kit Carson, Abraham, Mary Todd Lincoln and many others.

USCIS Reno field office director Monica Toro will administer the oath of allegiance and a variety of historical figures will join her to present certificates of naturalization to each new citizen. The 39 candidates hail from Bangladesh, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, India, Iran, Lithuania, Mexico, Nepal, Peru, Philippines, Romania, Senegal, Spain, Tonga, and Trinidad and Tobago.

The USCIS Reno Field Office is located at Mills Park, 1111 E. William St. in Carson City.
