Dual Citizenship for South Korea immigrant to USA

My wife has her green card. In the future she may consider becoming a US citizen. If anyone happens to know off hand if the immigration laws have changed to allow this? So far everything I have found online is cryptic. I'm not in a rush for an answer and may eventually see an immigration lawyer about it. Curious if anyone ran into this before.

Greencard - Change in citizenship (non-US)

I am a greencard holder. When I applied for my greencard I was a citizen of an EU country. It seems that I am not not a citizen of this country anymore, but am still a citizen of another country (non-EU) in West Europe. What happens if I want to leave/re-enter the USA using my greencard with a passport I have not used to enter/leave the US before. Does anyone have a good contact to get a solid answer about this? Or - even more basic - what happens when I try to leave the US with a passport I have not used to enter it?

I'm Irish/Canadian. I'd like that for my common law partner too.

This is one of one things I've been meaning to get around to for years. I'm a Canadian with an Irish passport (acquired through my Grandparents) that expired 20 years ago. I'd like to renew it and if possible, confer Irish citizenship on my common law partner. [more inside]

Help us get a passport so we can go to Mexico

My husband was born in the US and moved back to Canada as a baby with his Canadian parents. Apparently he received a proof of citizenship card when he was a teen but now it is lost. I understand that he will need this to apply for a Canadian passport. His sister is getting married in January in Mexico, where he will be in the wedding party. We have applied for the replacement citizenship card already about a month ago but have gotten no confirmation so far, and I just read on the website that it will take 6 months. This is not enough time to get it and the passport before mid January. Now we are panicked. Is there anything else we can do? Can he apply for an American passport instead in order to travel to Mexico? He has dual citizenship since he has an American birth certificate. Thanks

Did Handel really say this?

After Georg Friedrich Händel became George Frideric Handel in 1727, I have it stuck in my mind that he once said, to a Brit who called him a German, "No, Sir, I am more English than you, because I chose to become English, whereas you were assigned your nationality willy-nilly," or words to that effect. But no amount of googling has found a reliable quote or reference to this. Has anyone else heard this story, or did my mind make it up? Anyone have a reliable source? [more inside]

Can you fill in the blanks for me on this 19th century US citizenship law?

I recall reading somewhere about a 19th century American law whereby a child born in the US would be a citizen only if the father was a citizen and the child was male. It applied either to all non-whites or to only asians. I can't seem to find this anywhere. . . probably because I can barely remember the details! Does this ring a bell for anyone?

How can I find all my travel outside of the US for previous passports?

I am in the middle of a process that requires that I log all my travel outside of the US since 2001. I can get every trip from 2002 onwards, but my previous passport was destroyed to prevent Identity Theft. I have a mail in to United (which was with whom I travelled exclusively that year) but I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to get this information in some other fashion.

World Citizen

Earlier today there was a question about being born in the UK and citizenship. Now I'm curious...my mother is English, my father is Dutch, I was born in Canada (while my parents were living there), and I'm a naturalized US citizen. If for some reason I ever wanted to do so, which countries (if any) could I try to claim citizenship in? [more inside]
