Court rules against granting American Samoans citizenship at birth – The Seattle Globalist

American Samoans still won’t be eligible for full U.S. citizenship at birth, an appeals court ruled Friday, leaving the island as the only place on U.S. soil where someone can be born without getting full U.S. citizenship rights.

According to the Associated Press, the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia circuit ruled against plaintiff Leneuoti Fiafia Tuaua, who argued that people born on the U.S. territory should not have to apply for naturalization like immigrants from other countries do.
