Naturalization and Citizenship

Did you know there are four ways you can become a United States citizen. The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that anyone born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. is a U.S. citizen. Also, people born in another country to parents who are U.S. citizens may, depending on certain rules become U.S. citizens at birth through acquisition of U.S. citizenship. Last, other people can become U.S. citizens through naturalization process. People who are lawful permanent residents of the U.S. and whose parent or parents are United States citizens through naturalization, birth in the United States or other ways such as acquisition of citizenship, derivation of citizenship or Section 322 citizenship, may, depending on certain rules can become U.S. citizen through derivation of citizenship.
