In addition, a citizen of the United States can become also a citizen of a State; that is, a citizen of the United States AND a citizen of a State.  Also, a citizen of a State, as distinguished from a citizen of the United States, is shown to be a citizen of the several States; that is, a citizen of a State AS WELL AS a citizen of the several States.  To this, is that an alien or foreigner can be either a citizen of the United States or a citizen of a State (as well as a citizen of the several States), as distinguished from a citizen of the United States. Legal authority included.
