Even if you may have multiple nationalities for some reason, you are still a
single individual and could only be admitted to the US as an individual at a
particular time. You have to decide which individual nationality you are
when applying for a visa and entry into the US. You may have different
benefits based on your other nationalities but you can't claim them all at
the same time when applying for a visa at a single particular entry at the
POE. You would be treated as one and may be given the chance to use the best
option that you are qualified to have. Your immigration status would be the
same status you were authorized under upon admission.
For example, if you are a US citizen and also a citizen of another country
at the same time, you would be treated as a US citizen at the POE. You
cannot claim another foreign citizenship at a US POE and hope to exploit
whatever benefits that go with it.
What is your particular example in mind when you posted your inquiry?
