Naturalization grants U.S. citizenship upon foreign nationals who have fulfilled the requirements Congress established in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). After naturalization, foreign-born citizens enjoy nearly all the same benefits, rights, and responsibilities that the Constitution protects for native-born U.S. citizens, including the right to vote.
