Person who by place of birth, nationality of one or both parents, or by going through the naturalization process has sworn loyalty to a nation. the united states has traditionally taken the position that an american citizen is subject to losing his/her citizenship if he/she commits acts showing loyalty to another country, including serving in armed forces potentially unfriendly to the united states, or voting in a foreign country. however, if the foreign nation recognizes dual citizenship (canada, israel, and ireland are common examples) the u.s. will overlook this duality of nationalities.
