IMMIGRATION LAW: CITIZENSHIP / NATURALIZATION

Under the fourteenth amendment “all persons born or naturalized in the United States … are citizens of the United States.” One can also become a citizen by a combination of location, later residence and U.S. parental citizenship.

A lawful permanent resident can also become a citizen by naturalization. An LPR must have accrued the requisite residence, must be 18 years old, meet continuous residence and physical residency requirements, must be of good moral character, and attached to the principles of the constitution and well disposed to the good order and happiness of the U.S.
