    In Article I, Section 8, that specifies the powers of Congress. Clause 4 gives Congress the power "To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization..."

    So Congress decides who can and who can't become a citizen.

    And it's backed up by the role of gubment that's spelled out in the preamble of the constitution. "Form a more perfect union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquillity, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity."

    It can be argued that who can or can't become a citizen is pretty tied to almost all of those.

    You’ll get no disagreement from me about who has the authority to decide what the requirements for citizenship should be, but immigration has nothing to do with citizenship. Cheers

    Immigrating to any country in the world with plans to stay for an extended period of time, or reside permanently, has a whole lot to do with citizenship status.
