Undocumented Former Filipino Actor Wins At-birth Citizenship

“Mr. Villar joins a very small set of Filipinos who have successfully overcome the burden of proving that despite being born outside the United States and out-of-wedlock they are also American citizens.” In an inspiring article, a former Philippine actor who was living undocumented in the U.S. since 2003 was able to win his case at the Administrative Appeals Office in Washington, D.C. Mr. Villar was able to establish that he is a U.S. citizen from birth, despite being born abroad out-of-wedlock and not having met his U.S. citizen father until October 2007.
