A citizen of a State, under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution of the United States of America, is now also a citizen of the several States. Such citizen is recognized under international law as a citizen of the several States.

A citizen of a State, under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution of the United States of America, is a citizen of a particular State as well as a citizen of all the several States; that is, a citizen of the several States, generally. A citizen of the United States, however, is a citizen of the territories and possessions of the United States, including the District of Columbia and the federal enclaves in the several States of the Union.

Therefore, in the country of the United States, since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment and the Slaughterhouse Cases, there are two citizens, a citizen of the several States, and a citizen of the United States.
