One immigrant’s story: While thousands of people in cities around the West marched for immigrant justice and worker rights on May 1, Brewster resident Julio Talavera was attending a different kind of ceremony in Spokane. Law Day drew some 100 immigrants who had passed all the requirements to become American citizens. They listened to speeches, took the Oath of Allegiance, and celebrated their new citizenship.

Talavera was already basically an American. He moved to California from Mexico with his parents when he was a 5-year-old boy. They moved to Brewster when he was 8, and there he stayed, graduating from Brewster High School, getting married and getting a job as a personal banker at Umpqua Bank. Now 25 years old, he and his wife have a young son and daughter, with a third on the way.
