AZTEC, N.M. (AP) - More than a dozen immigrants have taken the oath of citizenship at a special Aztec Ruins National Monument ceremony.

The 18 New Mexico residents from Guatemala, Iraq, Mexico, and the Philippines took part in the event on Saturday as part of an effort to highlight the nation’s parks.

They celebrated their new citizenship as the national monument celebrated the centennial of the National Park Service.

Each of the new citizens was given a passport book to the national parks, which was stamped with an Aztec Ruins symbol following the naturalization ceremony.
