Becoming an American: a student from CLUES' citizenship classes becomes naturalized

CLUES would like to highlight and congratulate our citizenship student Jesús. Jesús arrived in the US in 2003 from Michoacán, Mexico. He and his wife currently reside in Eagan. His citizenship teacher clearly remembers Jesús’s first day of class in February 2019. He arrived fully prepared - donning a new backpack full of supplies that his wife bought him. Jesús was a regular face at CLUES and studied more than 115 hours through both in-person and virtual classes. 

Jesús successfully passed his naturalization interview and test on September 29, 2020. The following week Jesús talked with his classmates via Zoom to share his experience and answer their questions.

Jesús’s naturalization ceremony was on November 2 and he was able to vote for the first time as a citizen the following day!

His teachers Anaid, David, Erica, Joe, Mallie, Natalya and Pam, along with staff in the CLUES Adult Education department want to congratulate Jesús for his dedication and well-deserved success!

CLUES hosts three 14-week citizenship preparation classes throughout the year on Mondays from 6-8 p.m. Classes are currently held via Zoom. You can find more information about our English and Adult Education classes here.

Join us on Tuesday, April 13 for a live Spanish-language event on the CLUES Facebook Page with VLN attorney Colleen Beebe Purisaca to talk about the Biden-Harris administration's new immigration policy.
