      Hi pamheart: because all the children of an american citizent, who immigrate to USA before 18 years old, are automatic american citizen.


      AMERICAN CONSULATE GENERAL
      CIUDAD JUAREZ, CHIH., MEXICO
      Child Citizenship Act of 2000
      As you complete the process of seeking an immigrant visa for your child, please note that your child may benefit from the provisions of the "Child Citizenship Act of 2000." This law, effective on February 27, 2001, facilitates the acquisition of United States citizenship for the foreign-born children (both biological and adopted) of United States citizen parents when those children do not acquire United States citizenship at birth.
      Under this law, children automatically acquire U.S. citizenship if all of the following conditions have been met:
      1. One parent is a U.S. citizen, by birth or through naturalization.
      2. The child is under the age of eighteen.
      3. The child is residing in the United States pursuant to a lawful admission as a permanent resident alien in the legal and physical custody of the American citizen parent.
      Adopted children must meet the requirements of either Section 101(b)(1)(E) or Section 101(b)(1)(F) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
      Under this law, U.S. citizenship becomes effective on the day the last of the foregoing conditions have been met. Thus, U.S. citizenship will not date back to your child's date of birth.
      Although U.S. citizenship is conferred automatically with respect to those who qualify, you nonetheless may want to obtain documentary proof of your child's status as a U.S. citizen thereby making his/her acquisition of U.S. citizenship a matter of record.
      To assist you in this regard, we are enclosing an application for United States passport. After your entry into the United States and your child's admission for permanent residence, you may take the completed application to any passport agency or any clerk of court or post office that is authorized to accept such applications. As proof that your child has complied with the third condition cited above, it is important to present either your child's alien registration card a.k.a. a "green card" or the passport containing the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services ("BCIS") endorsement made at the time of his/her initial admission into the United States as an immigrant. For further information on the passport application process, please consult the Department of State's website at http://www.state.gov/
      You can also document your child's citizenship by applying to the INS for a Certificate of Citizenship. Information pertaining to the Certificate of Citizenship can be obtained by logging on to the BCIS's website at http://www.bcis.gov/graphics/index.htm Please note, however, that a Certificate of Citizenship is not a travel document and cannot be used in lieu of a passport for that purpose.
      I hope that this letter has been useful. Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions pertaining to this law.
      Sincerely,
      U.S. Consular Officer
      CDJ-455/FEB2001

      I hope this help.
