    Child has dual citizenship, US and country of parent. But during child's minority, child is considered citizen of parent's country. Child may elect citizenship when child obtains its majority.

      I don't see how this is a poll. This is a matter of law and your opinion does not affect anything.

      The US Constitution grants US citizenship to anyone born in the US under the jurisdiction of US law. If you are born here, you are a citizen even if your parents are illegal aliens. They are still subject to US law, thus the term illegal (in violation of the law) alien. The exception is for those not subject to US law, such as agents of a foreign country (i.e. Ambassadors and representatives at the United Nations who have diplomatic immunity).

      Whether a child is a citizen of the parent's nationality is determined by the laws of that country. Each country has different requirements for transfer and retention of its citizenship.
