Becoming a citizen of the United States is the highest benefit a person can receive under U.S. immigration law. U.S. citizenship status may be conferred in several ways:
•   By birth in the U.S.;
•   By birth abroad to a U.S. citizen parent or parents (acquisition);
•   By naturalization;
•   By derivation, where a lawful permanent resident child under 18 resides in the U.S. with at least one citizen parent

Naturalization is the way for immigrants to become US citizens through fulfilling certain requirements. Criteria to become citizen through naturalization are:
•   Having permanent residence status (green card) for the required number of years
•   Being presented in the U.S. for half the required period of continuous residence
•   Being a person of good moral character
•   Showing some ability to read, write, speak and understand phrases in English.
