KEENE, Calif. - Twenty-three people were sworn in as citizens Monday at the César E. Chávez National Monument.
March 31 marks the birthday of César Chávez, a day that Governor Jerry Brown designated as a state holiday.
The site is the final resting place of César E. Chávez, who, with others such as Dolores Huerta and Larry Itliong, started the United Farm Workers of America (UFW).
The new citizens came from Brazil, India, Mexico and Saudi Arabia, among others.
