Re: Plans to End Birthright Citizenship in the USA

Yes it will. Nevertheless, it will happen in 2011 nor in 2012...Things have to get a lot worse before that law becomes ineffective. By the way, many countries have switched to jus sanguinis, e.g Ireland in 2005 and NZ in 2006. So in my opinion, it is only a matter of time...

Nothing wrong with denying children of ILLEGAL immigrants that passport.
