and Responsibilities of U.S. Citizenship.
To become a U.S.
citizen, an individual must either be born in the United States, born abroad
to U.S. citizens or nationals, or go through the naturalization process.
The Immigration and Nationality Act lists the requirements
an immigrant must meet in order to properly naturalize and become a U.S.
citizen. First, there is a residency/physical presence requirement prior to
filing a naturalization application. All naturalization applicants must have
resided continuously after being lawfully admitted for permanent residence
within the United States for a period of five years immediately preceding
the date of filing his or her application of naturalization, and must have
been physically present in the United States for periods totaling at least
half that time during the five years immediately preceding the date of
filing his or her naturalization application, and must have resided within
the state or district of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services
(USCIS) of the United States in which the applicant filed the naturalization
application for at least three months. Second, there is a continuous
residency requirement after the naturalization application has been filed.
All naturalization applicants must have resided continuously within the
United States from the date of application up to the time of admission to
citizenship. Finally, the naturalization applicant must demonstrate that he
or she is a person of good moral character.
