Citizenship Victory in MN - Moran v. Mayorkas

April 18, 2024 (1 min read)

Moran v. Mayorkas

"At the time of Mr. Valadez Moran's birth, it is more likely than not that his mother, Ms. Moran, was a citizen of the United States by virtue of her birth in Elsa, Texas on April 27,
1975. U.S. Const. amend. XIV § 1. It is more likely than not that Ms. Moran was physically in the United States for a period of at least five years (from 1987 to 1992), and that she was older than the age of fourteen for at least two of those years, prior to Mr. Valadez Moran's birth. The Court thus finds that Mr. Valadez Moran meets the requirements of § 1401(g) for U.S. citizenship by birth. By the authority vested in this Court under 28 U.S.C. § 2201 and 8 U.S.C. § 1503, the Court declares that Mr. Valadez Moran is a citizen of the United States, and is entitled to all the rights and privileges that status affords. This declaration shall have the force and effect of a final judgment or decree. 28 U.S.C. § 2201(a)."
