Once you turn 21 you are no longer their "anchor baby", and as such they have no citizen dependants to support. If they continue to stay, they can be deported and never allowed to return. If they leave the country voluntarily and apply for re-entry, they will have a far greater probability of getting the paperwork through with you here as a sponsor. It appears that they are trying to do it the right way. Let them.

Can an non green card child become a naturalized citizen if the parents are citizen?

Absolutely. The child can become a US citizen through its parents who are US citizens. The child has to apply for citizenship by filing in Form N-600 to obtain the certificate of citizenship.

Does Czech republic allow dual citizenship?

The short answer appears to be no, as the Czech republic asks for a renunciation of your previous citizenship when you are applying for Czech citizenship. There are some exceptions to this: - the country of which you are currently a citizen will not let you renounce your citizenship - the country of which you are a citizen does not issue certificates affirming/asserting renunciation (so you cannot provide proof of the renunciation) - renouncing your current citizenship would put you in physical danger As for the other way around, if you are a Czech citizen and you are voluntarily naturalized, you forfeit your citizenship. If, however, you acquire citizenship through being born in a country, or through marriage, it seems as though you could actually be a dual citizen. There are supposedly numerous people who have not notified the Czech authorities of their new status as citizens in other countries and have retained their Czech passport, so they are (at least for a time) de factor if not de jure dual citizens.

He can apply and go through the process like everyone else, although being in the country illegally means he is likely to be deported. This counts badly against someone for the purposes of applying and gaining citizenship; he is better to leave, apply from there and come back in the 'right' way.

If an American citizen marries a foreigner do they lose their American citizenship?

No you do not.The only person that doesn't have citezenship in America is the person from overseas.Another answer:Marriage to a foreign citizen does not affect one's own citizenship. If the new spouse wishes to obtain US citizenship, the laws of the home country determine whether or not that individual either gets dual citizenship or loses the original citizenship. For example, if a bride from New Zealand marries an American, she may gain US citizenship and retain her New Zealand citizenship. If a Chinese bride seeks US citizenship, though, China will not permit her to retain her Chinese citizenship.

What is higher citizenship or residency?

The difference between citizenship and residency of a state can mean different things in different situations. It can be difficult to determine which state a person is a citizen of, although residency requirements for many things in many states are one year. Generally, though, citizenship of a state implicates the ability to vote or run for office there and the responsibility to pay taxes in that state.Added: Unequivocally - citizenship of a country is the higher value of the two.
