The Supreme Court heard oral argument today in Flores-Villar v. United States, a case that considers the citizenship rights of children born overseas with one U.S.-citizen parent.  Under the current statutes, when the U.S.-citizen parent is the child’s father, that parent must have been physically present in the United States for at least five years prior to the child’s birth.  If the U.S.-citizen parent is the child’s mother, the required period of physical presence in the United States is only one year. A transcript of the oral arguments is available here, the Court’s docket sheet is here, and information from the SCOTUSblog, including links to the various briefs filed in the case, is here.
