ALERT: NO US Citizenship for Children of Some Military Members Active Outside The Country

The Trump administration is making it more difficult for the children of some U.S. service members and U.S. government employees living abroad to automatically become U.S. citizens, according to a policy alert released Wednesday by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The rule appears to primarily affect the children of naturalized U.S. citizens serving in the armed forces who have not lived in the U.S. for a required period of time, a relatively small number — estimated to be approximately 100 annually, according to a Defense Department official.
