USCIS provides a "technical update" to clarify Nationality Chart 2 in Vol. 12, Part H., Chapter 3 of the Policy Manual, which is found in the appendices to the chapter. The update clarifies the acquisition of citizenship requirements for children born out of wedlock before May 24, 1934. The relevant portion of the chart now reads: "The mother resided in the United States at any time before the child’s birth," including a footnote citing to INA 301(h), added by the Immigration and Nationality Technical Corrections Act of 1994 (INTCA).
