I am a naturalized US citizen. I continue to have my original passport. The rule is that I must act like a US citizen in the US, act like an EU citizen in the EU and I can claim either in any other country. There is no requirement to give up your passport.

Fucked how? The DHS would take my EU one away, maybe, and then I'd reapply...
on the other hand, your passport is the property of the government and can be taken away at any time, and then it is up to you to prove that you are a citizen
which is why the nice man gave me a Certificate of Naturalization, and gave you a long-form birth certificate.
