A - The I-9 form is designed to determine who is authorized to work in the United States.  It's purpose is not to determine who is and is not a citizen.  While all citizens are authorized to work here, it is not always easy to recognize who is and is not a citizen.  We are a diverse people drawing our heritage from every country on the planet.  There is no stereotype for what an American citizen looks or sounds like.   Citizens look and sound like every person on earth.  That is America's strength.  It is because of this strength that employers cannot simply look at new hires and conclude, "you I need to do an I-9 for, and you I do not."  For this process to have a chance of working, everyone has to have one done.
