Content:

The nationality can be acquired by birth. There are two principles, the principle of descent and the territorial principle. In the United States, the territorial principle is valid, which means that the twins since they were born at the territory of the United States do have the American nationality. In Germany, however, the principle of descent, supplemented by elements of the territorial principle is valid, which means that they as children of German parents, have the German nationality. They also could have two nationalities at the same time, or select one of them (eventually have to select, depending on the nationality laws of the two countries at that time).
