I am only a citizen of Russia but hope to be a citizen of the US one day so I'm totally ok with it.

Not for me. I'm a citizen of Texas and that's all I need, pahdnah!

Both my SO and child have dual citizenship. I'm fine with it.

I don't see anything wrong with it. Loyalty isn't determined by citizenship, and even then is loyalty all that important when we aren't in a world or cold war?

This just seems irrelevant to me

For me... USA is my nation.

Depends on the relationship between the two countries. If someone wants to be a citizen of both the US and France, I don't have a problem with that. If they wanted to be a dual US and Iranian citizen I would ask them to pick one.

If they are from a country whose government is hostile to ours I would want them to renounce allegiance to that government as a condition of citizenship here.

It creates a conflict of interest. You should be completely loyal to the United States. Dual citizenship signals a lack of true loyalty.

Ok, but dual citizenship doesn't automatically signal a lack of loyalty. I believe that a person can love two countries equally and be loyal to both.

No, they can't. In the words of Theodore Roosevelt, any man who loves other countries as much as his own stands on the same level as a man who loves other women as much as his own wife. If you have no desire to be a loyal to the United States, and only the United States, then you shouldn't be coming here. Half-loyalty is not loyalty at all. Dual citizenship signals an unwillingness to swear your full allegiance to the United States. It is also a blatant violation of the oath of allegiance that immigrants are required to recite at naturalization and citizenship ceremonies.

I disagree, but can see that there's no changing your opinion on this.

We can just agree to disagree. I still have a lot of respect for you and your opinions though. πŸ˜‰βœŒπŸ»οΈ

I don't think we should just blindly follow our country though.

My SO has dual citizenship. He was born in London, but his father is American. He's lived in the US most of his life. I fully support it.

I oppose it. You cannot be loyal to two countries at once. Pick a side. If you want to come to the United States, you should swear your complete allegiance to this country and relinquish all loyalty to any foreign power. Anything less than that signals a lack of loyalty.

Sure you can. My mom is an Israeli citizen, making me one too. Both of us were born here, making both of us US and Israeli citizens. We both love both of our countries.

It is the nationality equivalent of a conflict of interest in the business world.

Ok, cool. I gotta say, I was kind of blown away by your vehemence in this matter, and i decided that this is probably not something i can change your mind about.

Yeah, there are certain issues that I'm more passionate about than others. This is one of them. Sorry if I got a little too intense. 😜✌🏻️
