Hi,

I am Canadian, was adopted at birth by my Canadian dad and US landed immigrant mom. I've always been told I am eligible for dual citizenship and now that I own some US property I've been looking into it more seriously. However, I recently noticed that the DS-11 (application for a passport) states: "Acquisition of U.S. citizenship for persons born abroad and adopted only applies if the applicant was born on or after 02/28/1983." I was born in the 70s.

This seems completely arbitrary.... is there any recourse?

Thank you,

Jana
