What is the application process for U.S. citizenship/naturalization?

A person of exceptional merit can be declared an honorary citizen of the US by an act of Congress or by a proclamation issued by the President pursuant to authorization granted by Congress. So Congress must be involved. And honorary citizenship does not carry with it the rights and privileges of ordinary citizenship. It is a strictly symbolic act. Only one person so honored was given an unofficial US document. that was Winston Churchill and, as you can see, it looks like a passport if you back up and squint at it, but it does not denote actual, normal citizenship. Such honorary passports convey respect, but are not valid travel documents. ADDED. Someone rightly reminded me that, in some cases, Congress+Prez have been able to waive the waiting period for someone who is in the US; see Jack Kent Cook. But he was already eligible under the ordinary process.
