KOMMONSENTSJANE – IT IS TIME TO ABOLISH AUTOMATIC BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS.

It’s Time to Abolish Automatic Birthright Citizenship for Illegal Aliens

Current law works like this: Enter illegally. Have a baby. Baby is an instant citizen. Parents almost guaranteed permanent residency!

READY TO STOP THIS? IT’S TIME TO CHOOSE:

– KEEP GIVING CITIZENSHIP TO CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL ALIENS

– REFORM BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP: LEGAL RESIDENTS ONLY

Is it fair for some foreign nationals to wait 10, 20, even 30 years to immigrate to the U.S. the right way and go through the process of becoming an American citizen, while others . . .

. . . Sneak across our borders, or come here to visit or study, or overstay visas, then have children who automatically become U.S. citizens?

We say NO, it is NOT FAIR!

NumbersUSA endorses Rep. Steve King’s H.R. 140 that would put an end to the practice. Now Congress is trying to get out of town without doing ANYTHING REAL on immigration. Don’t let them.

Arguably U.S. citizenship is the most sought-after thing on this planet. Citizenship here opens a world of opportunity, . . . and also benefits, including free education, heavily subsidized medical care, voting in federal elections, Medicare, Medicaid, and so much more. About 150 million people around the world would move here tomorrow if they were allowed, according to the Gallup polling organization . . .

OR . . . you can break into this country when 9 months pregnant, have your child (free!) at a public hospital, and your child gets all these benefits INSTANTLY!

Under current practice, all children born in the U.S. receive automatic citizenship, but this practice serves as a magnet for foreign nationals who want their children to have citizenship in the United States. It’s called “birthright citizenship.”

The U.S. is one of only two industrialized nations to still grant birthright citizenship to all newborns. Each year, more than 300,000 children are born in the United States to parents who are either in the country illegally or are only visiting here.

Our policies actively bait women to break the law and risk their lives and their babies’ lives to come here to give birth. And the parents are rewarded for illegally entering the United States because our current law makes their kids citizens who can eventually sponsor the parents for citizenship, too.

You know, I’m in constant touch with our NumbersUSA members. Often, people ask me why we don’t push for reforming birthright citizenship.

I tell them that we DO PUSH for this reform–all the time, just as we’ve done for 22 years.It’s one of the five basic reforms of immigration numbers that we seek, as you can see on this drop-down list (right) from our home page.

READY TO STOP THIS? IT’S TIME TO CHOOSE:

– KEEP GIVING CITIZENSHIP TO CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL ALIENS

– REFORM BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP: LEGAL RESIDENTS ONLY

Every high school social studies student knows, laws are intended to reward desired behavior and punish unwanted behavior. But with our current immigration practices, those principles are turned on their head. BAD BEHAVIOR BY THE PARENTS IS REWARDED WITH AUTOMATICALLY GRANTING THEIR CHILDREN THE MOST PRECIOUS THING OUR SOCIETY CAN OFFER — CITIZENSHIP.

Any behavior you reward you get more of, right?

NumbersUSA has opposed automatic birthright citizenship for illegal aliens for the entire 22 years of our existence. It’s an issue that hasn’t been in the news much lately, but for years NumbersUSA has championed reform.

In this Congress, Rep. Steve King has introduced a bill, H.R. 140, that would ABOLISH BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP FOR CHILDREN OF ILLEGAL ALIENS AND OF ALIENS ON TEMPORARY VISAS. It’s on the measures we call the “Five Great Immigration Solutions.” For 22 years, NumbersUSA and our millions of followers have pushed for this reform. Do you agree that this reform is necessary for the future of our country?

Please help us make this issue front and center in the national immigration debate. Pres. Trump CAMPAIGNED on restricting birthright citizenship. Even the famous promoter of amnesty, Sen. Lindsay Graham promised to restrict it. But so far, Congress hasn’t acted.

As usual, CONGRESS MUST BE MADE TO ACT. THEY NEED PRESSURE FROM VOTERS. That’s where we come in.

Call your Congressman/woman and tell them we need Rep Steve King’s bill,—HR-140.
