    A "domestic born" citizen would be one born in the US.

    a u.s. citizen has a home country to go back to

    an american can run for president

    There are two ways to get US citizenship:

    1. Acquire US citizenship at birth by being born in the USA or having a US citizen parent who qualifies to pass on citizenship by descent. It is called being a "natural born US citizen".

    2. Acquire US citizenship later (not at birth) through naturalization.

    The ONLY difference between the two is one must be a "natural born US citizen" to be President of the USA.

    US citizen could be citizen by birth to US citizen wherever born; or born in US; or naturalized. Domestic-born means specifically those born in the US.

    One that was born in the US, the other was born elsewhere, migrated to the US and naturalised as a citizen

    It depends on what it is talking about. The immigrants can become US citizens if they are a refugee, asylee, have non-green-card permanent residency, or have a green card.

    Nothing. They are both US citizens.
