Mexico is a Spanish-speaking country about three times the size of Texas, consisting of 31 states and one federal district. The United States of America is a federal constitutional republic comprising fifty states and a federal district. Because Mexico is such a large country with so many Americans living and traveling here, we have in addition to the Embassy in Mexico City several Consulates around the country. It is usually best to contact the Embassy or Consulate nearest you, since that office will be in the best position to offer you help or information.

No you do not.The only person that doesn't have citezenship in America is the person from overseas.Another answer:Marriage to a foreign citizen does not affect one's own citizenship. If the new spouse wishes to obtain US citizenship, the laws of the home country determine whether or not that individual either gets dual citizenship or loses the original citizenship. For example, if a bride from New Zealand marries an American, she may gain US citizenship and retain her New Zealand citizenship. If a Chinese bride seeks US citizenship, though, China will not permit her to retain her Chinese citizenship.
