President Trump is reportedly planning to end so-called ‘birthright’ citizenship, according to this source.
Trump is quoted as saying that America is the only country in the world which gives automatic citizenship to anyone born on American soil, along with all the benefits thereof. The writers of the article contradict him, saying that more than 30 countries offer birthright citizenship, many of them ‘within the Western Hemisphere. True, but how many first world countries are in the Western Hemisphere? How many Latin American countries or Caribbean countries are desirable destinations for economic migrants? Not many, so the attempt to confuse matters by comparing our immigration policies with those of other Western hemisphere countries is disingenuous.
As with everything the President does, the left will raise a ruckus and try every means to derail this plan. Let’s hope their efforts fail.
