1.What are the various ways to become a US citizen?
  
 There are three primary ways to become an American citizen:
  
 
      Naturalization: The conferring, by any means, of Citizenship upon a person after birth
      Jus soli, or right of birthplace: Any child born in the U.S. automatically acquires U.S. Citizenship, even if the child’s mother was in the U.S. illegally. This provision does not apply to a child whose parent was a foreign diplomat at the time of birth
      Jus sanguinis, or right of blood: Even though a child is born outside the U.S., the child automatically acquires U.S. Citizenship if at least one parent was a U.S. citizen at the time of the child's birth

2. What privileges do I enjoy as a U.S. citizen?
  
 As a U.S. citizen, you:
  
 
      Are entitled to vote in national, state, and local elections
      Have the right to travel on a U.S. passport
      May sponsor relatives, such as your parents, spouse, children, brothers and sisters for permanent resident status in the U.S.
