Deciding to become a U.S. citizen is an important decision in a person’s life. By being naturalized, you accept the responsibilities of being a citizen. In return, you are entitled to vote in U.S. elections, serve on juries and hold a U.S. passport. Most importantly, by becoming a U.S. citizen, you will never face the danger of being deported.
U.S. citizens can sponsor their spouse, their unmarried children under age 21, and their parents as immediate relatives. These relatives do not have to wait for a visa number to become current.
