Cheyenne – It may interest you to know that the United States is alone among the nations of the developed world in offering Birthright Citizenship to the babies of illegal immigrants.
And as if that’s not bad enough, there’s some evidence that we’re even offering it to tourists visiting Disney World.
That’s right, every other modern developed nation in the world has, if they ever had them, gotten rid of its birthright citizenship policies. Yet, most of the liberal U.S. News media and Democrat politicians ridicule comments by some other politicians that it is time for the U.S. to put an end to birthright citizenship for tourists and illegal aliens.
No other countries allow it. The United States now stands alone. There used to be all kinds of developed countries which gave away their citizenship as freely as we do in the United States of America. But one by one they all have recognized the folly of that policy.
Here’s a list of some foreign nations that have recently ended their flirtation with a Birthright Citizenship policy:
* Canada was the last non-U.S. Holdout. Illegal aliens stopped getting citizenship for their babies in 2009.
* Australia’s birthright citizenship requirements are much more stringent than those of H.R. 1868 and took effect in 2007.
* New Zealand repealed it in 2006
* Ireland repealed it in 2005
* France repealed it in 1993
* India repealed it in 1987
* United Kingdom repealed it in 1983
* Portugal repealed it in 1981
The United States is the ‘laughing stock’ of the modern world. Only the U.S. values its citizenship so lowly as to distribute it promiscuously to the off-spring of foreign citizens visiting Disney World on tourist visas and to foreign citizens who have violated their promises on their visitor, work and student visas and have stayed illegally in the country, as well as to those who sneak across our borders.
It’s not just Mexico and South America who are sending illegals across our borders. Currently, the CBP reports that of those apprehended illegally crossing the border, China is number one.
Wake up America. Illegal aliens from China, India, Russia, the Middle East and a host of other nations are flooding the country. Ironically, most often these illegals and/or their offspring are given positions at the front of the line for Government jobs, contracts and assistance.
Look around you! We are giving away our culture, and economic and fiscal strength because our borders are not secure and we bestow citizenship irresponsibly.
