Congratulations to MIRA clients Sergio Espín Peralta (left) and Patience Diggs (right), new U.S. Citizens! They each took the Oath of Allegiance this summer in New Orleans.
Sergio lives in metro Jackson, and is a native of Morelos State, Mexico. Patricia also helped him obtain lawful permanent residence more than twenty years ago.
Patience came to Mississippi from an orphanage in Liberia, her native country. She graduated from high school in Marion County, MS, then earned her Bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from the University of Southern Mississippi, where she is now employed.
