CASE ENTRY

Khalid v. Sessions

Under federal law, children with green cards become U.S. citizens automatically if they are living in the United States in the “legal and physical custody” of a citizen parent. Does this apply to a (now-adult) son whose father became a citizen while the son was in juvenile detention for conspiring to aid terrorists? Second Circuit: whatever criminal charge he may be subject to, the son is an American citizen and cannot be deported.
