End Birthright Citizenship: no More Anchor Babies

End Birthright Citizenship

  • Birthright Citizenship

Birthright Citizenship is the practice of offering automatic citizenship to children born in the United States. Under current federal law, all children born in the U.S. receive automatic citizenship, but this practice had created a magnet for foreign nationals who want their children to have citizenship in the United States.

Traditionally, nations that offer Birthright Citizenship do so to increase its own population. Most developed nations have ended the practice of Birthright Citizenship or have never offered it in the first place. The United States is the most populated nation to still offer Birthright Citizenship

A bill to repeal Birthright Citizenship has been offered in the House of Representatives by former Georgia Congressman Nathan Deal. After Rep. Deal’s resignation to run for governor, the bill’s sponsorship was taken over by California Congressman Gary Miller.

The Immigration and Nationality Act defines Birthright Citizenship in the United States, but it’s also a clause in the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. However, the Supreme Court has never interpreted the Birthright Citizenship clause as it applies to illegal aliens – only legal immigrants.

Sen. John Boozman (R-Ark.) has co-sponsored Sen. David Vitter’s (R-La.) legislation that would amend federal law to require at least one parent of children born in the United States be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident. The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011 (S.723) amends section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act and is similar to legislation offered by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) in the House.

Sen. Boozman is serving his first term in the Senate, but was a leader in the House for five years. He has earned a career A grade.

Sen. Vitter introduced S.723 with three original co-sponsors, including Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and Rand Paul (R-Ky.).

According to a recent study from the Center for Immigration Studies, 200,000 children are born each year to non-immigrant visitors to the United States.
