Montana Welcomes Some New Americans

Posted: Updated:

The state of Montana is welcoming in 25 new citizens into the United States. Each new American was sworn in during a ceremony held at the Federal Court House. People from all different walks of life and from 16 different countries are celebrating a very special day, the day they become an American citizen.

"It's where the people have gone through a course. People coming from other nations who choose to be citizens of the U.S. through a course that's administrated by homeland security and it culminates into today in district court," explains Mayor Michael Winters.

Milly Tures is one of the newly sworn in American citizens, and she could not be happier.

"Extremely excited, it's been a long journey, it's been a rough road but of course it's the best thing like this is the best day of my life," says Tures.

Tures has gone to school here in America and now she will be not only starting her new American life here, but will also be part of the Great Falls community.

"I went to school in Minnesota and then when I graduated from nursing school in 2009 I movers to Dillon Montana, and I was in Dillon for 7 months and then I met my husband and moved to billings and I lived in Billings for 3 years and I just moved Great Falls 2 months ago I got a job at Benefis hospital," says Tures.

And Tures fully plans to be a big part of the community.

"All the opportunities and to be part of the community, I like volunteering, I've always volunteered in activities I've always liked being part of the community," adds Tures

At the ceremony folks were sworn in as citizens and smiling faces where all around the court at this joyous occasion.

"Absolutely tickled, this is absolutely the most favorite of all my tasks," says Winters.
