Every year, an increasing number of individuals born in the United States are eligible for Mexican citizenship due to having one or both parents as Mexican-born citizens. These individuals, known as Mexican Americans or estadounidenses de origen mexicano, are Americans with full or partial Mexican descent. As of 2013, Mexican Americans accounted for approximately 10.9% of the U.S. population, totaling around 34 million people of Mexican ancestry. They also represent 64% of the Hispanic and Latino population in America.
Understanding Mexican Americans and Dual Citizenship
If you or your child qualify for Mexican citizenship, you may be required to apostille and translate your or your child’s U.S. birth certificate. Documents International, LLC has a dedicated team with over 10 years of experience in the apostille field, offering assistance in both apostille and translation services by a Mexican Perito Traductor. To get started, simply reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mexican American Community in the United States
The United States is home to the second-largest Mexican community globally, with Mexico being the first. Approximately 24% of the world’s Mexican-origin population resides in the U.S., while Canada accounts for a mere 0.3%. Mexican Americans primarily live in California and Texas, but they can also be found in states such as New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and Arizona. This data was last updated in 2011.
Mexican Consulates and Assistance for Dual Citizenship
There are approximately 50 Mexican Consulates across the United States, including the Mexican Embassy in Washington, D.C. The consulates offer services such as “Consulado sobre ruedas” to assist communities located outside major cities where consulates are typically situated. They can provide you with the necessary requirements for obtaining dual citizenship. If you are already in Mexico, you can visit your nearest Oficina del Registro Civil to learn about the requirements. Additionally, numerous immigration attorneys based in Mexico can assist you throughout this process.
In either case, you may be asked to apostille and translate your U.S. documents, and that’s where we come in. Simply send us an email at email@example.com, and we will respond within 8 business hours.
