If they are US citizens, you can apply for a US passport directly. The N-600 is optional.

 

On what basis did they obtain US citizenship?

Thank you so much . so I don't need to file N-600 I just get US passport for them?

Correct: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/legal/travel-legal-considerations/us-citizenship/Child-Citizenship-2000-Sections-320-322-INA.html

The N-600 is optional: https://www.uscis.gov/forms/n-600-application-certificate-citizenship-frequently-asked-questions "I already have a U.S. passport issued by the Department of State. Am I required to file a Form N-600 for a Certificate of Citizenship?"

Good. Use your naturalization certificate to apply for a US passport for them. They automatically became a citizen when you naturalized as they've been living with you. The N600 is optional for you. Congrats.

My wife just passed her N-400 interview today; she has two daughters under 18.  The day that she takes her oath, we will apply for U.S Passports for the two daughters.  And, after much serious thought, we have decided to also submit two N-600 applications for Certificate of Citizenship.  (I say serious thought because each N-600 will cost us $1,170.)  

 

The national news is so terrible with so many administration initiatives to curb immigration - both illegal and legal.  U.S. Citizens are having their U.S. Passports revoked or not renewed!!

I am concerned that decades from now, if our daughters lose their passport, they will have no evidence of U.S. Citizenship through naturalization of their mother.  

 

Then our daughter would have to assemble a packet of "Secondary Evidence" to prove U.S. Citizenship through Naturalization of a Parent.  They would be required to submit:  

  • Your foreign birth certificate listing your parent(s)
  • Your parent(s)’ naturalization certificate
  • Evidence of your permanent residence status. Examples include:
    • Permanent Resident Card/Green Card
    • Foreign passport with the original I-551 visa entry stamp
  • Your parents' marriage certificate (if your parents were married when you legally entered the U.S. and before your 18th birthday) 
  • Documentation of legal custody (if your parents were not married when you legally entered the U.S.)
  • Evidence of your legitimation (if your parents were not married at the time of your birth). Examples include:
    • Your parents' marriage certificate dated after your birth
    • Certified court order of legitimation 

There is no way that our teen daughters will faithfully maintain all of the above ORIGINAL documents for the rest of their lives.  Yes, they can apply for a renewed passport, but what if they run into bureaucratic obstacles?  It's simpler to get them a Certificate of Citizenship now, albeit irrationally expensive!

you have point for that, but I want to escape for paying that $1,170 each lol, I already been paying their CR2 visa and removal of condition, now I realized that the fiancee visa is way cheaper than spouse visa, any way thank you.
