The same rights that every US citizen has under the Constitution, with the exception age restriction laws. Examples, the right to vote is 18, purchase and consumption of alchohol is 21, age of legal adult is 18, age to enter into legal contracts is 18, age to marry or enlist in the military without parental consent is 18, age when parental custody no longer applies is 18, age to drop out of school without parental consent is 18.
