Cape May County Hosts Naturalization Ceremony as Part of Law Day Events
The Atlantic / Cape May Vicinage hosted a naturalization ceremony on Thursday, May 1, 2014, in the William E. Sturm, Jr. Administration Building. Assignment Judge Julio L. Mendez presided over the ceremony and administered the Oath of Citizenship.
Nieves Cardinale, field office director for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, presented a motion for the new citizens to Judge Mendez prior to the oath. This is the 1st naturalization ceremony hosted in Cape May County. “I am honored to officiate this naturalization ceremony. We welcome the new citizens and congratulate them and their families,” said Judge Mendez.
The naturalization ceremony was organized by the Atlantic/Cape May Vicinage in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security. Law Day was established in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower as an opportunity to celebrate our nation’s great heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law.
