It is true.
At the Canadian consulate: you're not a citizen.
At the American INS: you're not a citizen.

There will be several questions concerning this so let me outline for you:
1) Born in Canada(1964).
2) Raised in North Carolina (Camp Lejune: Marine Corps base- dad).
3) Father and mother naturalized in 1975 (I was only 10)
4) Joined the Navy in 1984 (had secret clearance)
5) 9/11
6) Lost SSN Card, birth cert and Native American Indian Card
7) Can't get job w/out SSN card
8) Return to Canada to get
a) NAICard (allows to work in US)
b) 50% native blood certificate
9) Can't get Passport of either country (possibility of work need)

So, I am litterally a man without a country! Although I am a Mohawk and of the Iroquois nation! But they don't have passports!

So you have now met someone who is not a citizen.

Any job openings?

b) 50% native blood certificate

Why return to Canada? If you have a legal SSN Card you can request a new one from SS Office.

Canada never gives up citizenship. You must go before a Magistrate and renounce it. You should be able to get something...

Just a thought.

I did have to get my birth cert... only after someone of a social standing 'said' they have known me my whole life-- go figure. And the Canadian counselet in LA said, "you are not a Canadian citizen because your parents were naturalized befor you were 12 and that stripped you of your Canadian citizenship."

My dad served in the USMC as a Canadian from 1963 - 1975. He served 2 tours in Vietnam, 2 Purple Hearts. He served the country which he considered His. He was born in Canada, my mother also. Camp LeJune was a great place to grow up, but once you do, you get out of there!

The laws THEN were that if your parents were natualized before your age was 12, then you were 'automatically' naturalized also, but then 9/11 and all the rules changed! There are literally thousands of folks which now do not quallify for US citizenship.

Just lost my small wallet with all pertinate cards, one of those "oh, sh**s"

I had to return to the reservation to get my card, because of fraud the rules state you must be present to get it. It's this card that allows me to work in the US. I've never had a green card, resident alien card or any other damn card.

Also, when I went to the SS office, they stated "yes, this is your number and No, we can't give you a replacement card without your 50 percentum letter" Because they didn't recognize me as a US citizen. Also, I went to get a passport a few years back and it was denied, I was not a citizen!

Check this out though, I've had a secret clearance but the INS and SSoffice say I'm not a citizen!

Talk about conspiracies, which organization in this country (US) controls who is and who isn't a citizen!?? So I can only travel between US and Canada because my Native Status Card allows for no border between the two!

Go figure!

Thanks for the list Phaethor but I would like to make a personnal comment: Why the heck do I need to have all that stuff(!) when I've served this country in time of war! Lived in this country my whole life, payed my taxes like everyone else and now have kids that live here! Back in '75 the forms did not have a listing for the kids, I know this because I have a form of that time (gathered from my mothers things before she died). But at the INS, they are fully aware of people, like me, that fall into this category.

You asked what about 9/11? That's when America became a Police State! When self protectionism overcame freedom! You can't travel without being tracked, you can't buy a gun/ can't get a pilots license/ can't travel where you want/ can't have opinions against our government without being suspected or investigated/ .... we lost more freedoms with 9/11 than you can imagine. I've almost come to the conclusion that Mexico has more freedoms than the US because they're not as technologically sophisticated and the people are not 'traceable' as we are! And I am willing to argue the point (or discuss it).

I am a man Without a Country! I'm going to change my original title to that.

Hi Tuatara-I find this very hard to believe. You seem to be more interested in U.S. citizenship as it is where you have lived all your life...but...you are a Canadian citizen by birth, and I don't think that could ever be negated by the fact your parents were naturalized U.S. citizens. Just to give you an example - my Dad is originally a Portuguese citizen who took Canadian citizenship b4 there was an accord between those 2 countries for dual. A number of years later my Dad moved to the U.S. remarried took dual U.S. citizenship, and had two sons born there. But his sons are automatically Canadian citizens, by virtue of the fact that Dad was still a Canadian citizen when they were born. All they have to do is make application, showing proof of Dad's citizenship.

from the citizenship website:

Who is eligible to obtain a citizenship certificate?

Any Canadian citizen is entitled to apply for a citizenship certificate. Naturalized Canadians automatically receive the document when they are granted their citizenship. Virtually all people born in this country are considered to be Canadian citizens. Likewise, anyone born to a Canadian parent is considered to be a Canadian citizen.

If you have any questions about your claim to citizenship you should call the Citizenship and Immigration Call Centre (phone number can be found at the end of this document).

www.cic.gc.ca...

If you have to, contact the prime minister's office. Good luck!
