    is that if he is a "naturalized" citizen now at age 19, since he does not have a history of service in the armed forces, the only way he could have gotten his citizenship would have been through his parents becoming citizens before he turned 18.

    He did not have to apply for it himself, he did not have to demonstrate English language skills, and he did not have to demonstrate knowledge of US civics (government and history). He became a citizen without being fingerprinted and without a criminal background check. It's similar to getting his citizenship by birth in the USA - it was automatic.
