Webinar Highlight:

Citizenship and Children

Children sometimes obtain U.S. citizenship because one or both of their parents are or become, U.S. citizens. They may acquire citizenship at the time of their birth. Sometimes they derive citizenship because they are permanent residents with a U.S. citizen parent. This webinar discusses how children get U.S. citizenship and how they get proof that they are U.S. citizens.
