For some people, U.S. citizenship seems to come easy -- they were either born in the United States, or at least born to U.S. citizen parents in another country. For other, it's the result of a long-term effort, after first obtaining a U.S. green card, then meeting the moral character and other criteria required to apply for naturalization.

In any case, U.S. citizenship confers a number of benefits upon those who hold it; the right to vote, to live in the U.S. free from the possibility of removal, the ability to petition for a number of family members from other countries to join the citizen in the U.S., and more. Learn the ins and outs of obtaining, proving, and enjoying your U.S. citizenship here.
