Citizenship through Apache blood.

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello there, I'm a current Green Card holder getting all set to apply for citizenship in about a year from now, I just heard this crazy thing about one being capable of becoming a US citizen by doing this blood test and proving that have Apache ancestry (or any other native american blood type e.g. Cherokee, Tiguan, Comanche).

 

I know it sounds ridiculously improbable but I just want to make sure, maybe someone knows something about it and the thing is that my great-grandmother was always talking about us having Apache relatives and stuff.

 

Thanks in advance for any info about this matter.

Are you referring to the Snyder Act of 1924 perhaps?

 

Good luck

The only way this would work is if you were born in Canada and have documents to show 50% minimum native blood.  From the USCIS website:

 

American Indians born in Canada (with at least 50% American Indian blood) cannot be denied admission to the United States. However, a record of admission for permanent residence will be created if an American Indian born in Canada wishes to reside permanently in the United States.

If you live outside the United States and are seeking to enter the United States, you must tell the Customs and Border Protection officer that you are an American Indian born in Canada and provide documentation to support your claim.  You must also state that you are seeking to enter to reside permanently in the United States.

If you live in the United States and are an American Indian who is born in Canada and who possesses at least 50% American Indian blood, you may obtain a Permanent Resident Card (green card) by requesting a creation of record.

Eligibility Criteria

You may be eligible to receive a green card (permanent residence) as an American Indian born in Canada if you:

  • Have 50% or more of blood of the American Indian race
  • Were born in Canada

You must have proof of this ancestry based on your familial blood relationship to parents, grandparents, and/or great-grand parents who are or were registered members of a recognized Canadian Indian Band or U.S. Indian tribe. 

You cannot apply for permanent residence if your tribal membership comes through marriage or adoption.

You're missing the point.  Your source talks about getting a green card.  OP already has one.  He just wants to become an instant citizen, which is, of course, impossible.
