Marriage to a U.S. citizen entitles the spouse to U.S. citizenship.

Does this emanate from the U.S. Constitution? Federal law? Other?

@dyslexia,
Marriage to a US citizen makes you an immediate relative and you can get and expidited green card ,but not immediate citizenship.

I believe this is in the Code or Federal Regulations (CFR)

@gollum,
Its Federal Law. The Constitution gives the power to Congress to

Quote:
To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;

To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;

@farmerman,
as I understand it, after a period of time (I think 3 years) a spouse may apply for citizenship.

@ebrown p,
Thats enabling rules for a great wide arena of stuff e. The Code of Federal Regs is where the actual rules reside, not the Constitution. Otherwise it sounds like the Constitution is like Genesis in that all contingencies were pre thought of in the 1780's.

Its Just like 40 CFR covers all nuclear regs, Something of which the Constitution is silent. The Constitution limits and empowers, it doesnt regulate.
