|Action Alert! Ask your congressman to support legislation to abolish birthright citizenship for anchor babies|
The Birthright Citizenship Act (Nathan Deal-GA) would eliminate automatic citizenship for children born in the United States to illegal aliens. HR 1868 would establish that the "subject to the jurisdiction" clause of the 14th Amendment awards birthright citizenship only if one of the parents is: (1) a U.S. citizen or national; (2) a lawful permanent resident alien in the United States; or (3) an alien on active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Our current policy encourages women to enter the United States illegally so that they can gain citizenship for these "anchor babies," resulting in over 300,000 additional citizens per year. The demographic impact is far greater because their families stay and bring in additional relatives.
