Getting citizenship will not be a big issue. The BIG issue is INS might require her to leave the country. You need to check with INS and their new laws regarding illegal entry.

Why are there more ways for a CAnadian to be here legally than a Mexican national. Especially, ones brought here as children.


Has the state of Illinois verifed Obama is a US citizen?

No state verifies citizenship unless a valid legal challenge has been brought. Mr. Obama has made public his State of Hawai'i birth certificate. Since he was born on American soil, he is by definition an American citizen. He is a citizen of only the United States, and has never held another citizenship instead or in addition to United States citizenship. Furthermore, Mr. Obama has held a U.S. passport for a number of years, and in order to hold a passport you must prove to the United States State Department that you are a citizen; therefore, the State Department also agrees that Mr. Obama is a citizen of the United States.

Can a minor child who was brought to the US illegally gain legal status if he marries a US citizen once he is of legal age?

Perhaps, it depends upon the foreign national's individual circumstances. However, marriage to a US citizen does not automatically guarantee permanent resident status nor citizenship.

My husband was brought to the US by his parents as a young child from Mexico. How would he apply for citizenship and will the fact that we are married help it any?

After marrying a US citizen, a green card holder can apply for citizenship after only 3 years instead of 5. But if he had green card this whole time since his childhood, marriage does not matter, he can just apply for US citizenship and go through all steps. You can go to the INS and do the necessary paperwork.

Why do people call themselves African Americans if they don't have duel citizenship is this not how racism starts?

Being an African American does not necessarily mean they have duel citizenship. In general, countries define citizenship based on ones descent, place of birth, marriage, and/or naturalization. An example of duel citizenship is when, lets say, an Australian citizen travels to the United States, marries a United States citizen and has children. Those children have both, US and Australian citizenship. The Term African American really comes from the slave trade when Africans were transported by ship to the Americas, in which they became, "African Americans." The African Americans today did not have a choice to be "African Americans" because their ancestors were brought here. Thus, the term 'African American' is not racist in anyway but more politically correct and duel citizenship does not apply to all African Americans.

How did identity status and class impact Athenian citizenship in ancient Athens?

To be accepted as a citizen, each male child was brought before his tribal council to verify his citizenship. Originally all were identified by status according to their possessions, the top three classes being allowed to be citizens. Under the democratic regime, even the fourth class was raised to citizenship, but still had to answer the question of their status as the third class (Zeugites). All others who could not identify were not citizens (women, slaves, foreigners).

How could a slave in Rome become a citizen?

A slave could not became a Roman citizen. Slaves were commodities, someone else's property which could be bought and sold at will. They had no legal status. However, freedmen could obtain Roman citizenship. Since many slaves were brought to Rome and the rate of manumission (freeing slaves) was high, at one point the majority of Roman citizens in the city of Rome were freedmen and their descendants.

I am the daughter of a US citizen but my parents never fixed my legal status brought me illegally to the U.S If I apply for naturalization through my father will I be deported to my birth place?

No. At least, what I've learned in government these last four weeks, you won't. According to my government book (looking at it right now to make sure and not make mistakes) under the "Jus Sanguinis" of Law of Blood, you are an American citizen. It doesn't say about being brought illegally, but my friend's boyfriend and his mother came here illegally, married a legal, citizen and have been living here. The two of them are now legal citizens. Because you were a child and brought through, and have been living here since (have you?) then you are a citizen of US - as long as you meet the requirements. Apply, because you won't be sent back. Law of the Blood says if you were born to an US citizen (even at least one), then you are an American citizen, legally. If you have lived in the US for over 5 years, after the age 0f 14, you can also apply for citizenship then as well. Oh, and I just found something: "an applicant requesting citizenship must be at least 18 years old, have lived in the US as a lawfully admitted resident alien for 30 months out of the previous 5 years, and have lived in the state where the petition is filed for at least 3 months." The basic of becoming it though - is a moral character (so I hope you aren't a murderer or anything..... -__-''' ) It will be a long process however, so I hope you endure it! You have to be under 18 to be naturalized under your father. After that you have to apply for citizenship on your own as an adult.

What problems did rome face as it expanded from a small republic into a vast empire?

You are confusing the entities Republic and Empire. They are different. An empire is a vast holding of some sort, it can be territory, a part of industry, publishing, or some type of manufacturing. A republic is a type of government. The major problem resulting from Rome's expansion was that of citizenship. There were others, but citizenship and the rights that were granted to citizens were part of the situation brought about by expansion. Other problems were policing the new areas, gathering taxes, recruiting auxiliary troops and creating new infrastructures for the new territories.You are confusing the entities Republic and Empire.

Can a foreign citizen can bring a civil suit in a US court for a violation of a treaty of the US?
