yes as they are also US citizens;you can claim them as qualifying relatives unless each person’ gross income is more than $3,950 for 2014. Only U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, legal permanent residents of the U.S., residents of Canada, and residents of Mexico can be claimed. Since you have already stated that they are citizens of the U.S., you can claim them.
