I see different opinions everywhere.
Some places recommend that you enter the US as a US citizen.
http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1753.html states that "MOST" US Citizens must use a US passport to enter and leave the United States.
However, I can't find an actual LAW that says you must. What if the person doesn't have a US passport, but only one of the other country? Could admitting to be a US citizen be a problem(Not being able to prove it, etc.)
