Security Clearance Concerns

Hello everyone, I’d like to become an officer in the US Military. However, I have dual citizenship, Mexican and American. I lived in Mexico for 21 years. Could that hinder the top-secret security clearance process in any way?
I’ve never used the Mexican passport and am willing to give it up if required.
I haven’t voted in any Mexican election.
I’ve never been engaged in any ilegal activity.
I don’t drink alcohol.
I don’t smoke.
I’ve been living in Texas for five years and a half.
what would you say are my chances of obtaining a DoD top-security clearance?

Your dual citizenship

Chances are like everything, it depends.

Not impossible by any means but you will be subject to extra scrutiny.

Like everyone else said, extra scrutiny on your foreign associations and activities.
I’ve answered yes on some of the things you listed and more, and I was just fine…
So nothing to worry about, just be truthful.
