I have no words - Every F-ing day we get new dumbassery from this administration. Is Donald going to send ICE thugs around to snatch and cage more toddlers? :angry:
Last summer, the State Department issued new rules unilaterally changing the department’s interpretation of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), a 1952 law that, along with the 14th Amendment, codifies eligibility for U.S. birthright citizenship.

“The U.S. Department of State interprets the INA to mean that a child born abroad must be biologically related to a U.S. citizen parent,” the State Department’s website says. “Even if local law recognizes a surrogacy agreement and finds that U.S. parents are the legal parents of a child conceived and born abroad… if the child does not have a biological connection to a U.S. citizen parent, the child will not be a U.S. citizen at birth.”

You LITERALLY had "no words" when it happened in the past:
Obama on Spot Over a Benefit to Gay Couples



But directly speaking to this thread,


https://www.washingtonpost.com/loca...ory.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.83c2b74fc4b6


This is not a trump policy but has been one for quite some time, this case dates back to 2015. Doing a search on the forums, I see no thread regarding this "outrage" back then.


Furthermore, the path to naturalization is an easier one for the child not considered a citizen and no one is going to take this child away and send the kid to a foreign country.


The policy should be changed but feigning "trump bad" on this is just another example of being suckered for propaganda and #fakenews.

Last summer, the State Department issued new rules unilaterally changing the department’s interpretation of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), a 1952 law that, along with the 14th Amendment, codifies eligibility for U.S. birthright citizenship.

“The U.S. Department of State interprets the INA to mean that a child born abroad must be biologically related to a U.S. citizen parent,” the State Department’s website says. “Even if local law recognizes a surrogacy agreement and finds that U.S. parents are the legal parents of a child conceived and born abroad… if the child does not have a biological connection to a U.S. citizen parent, the child will not be a U.S. citizen at birth.”

No parent can ever be fully prepared for the arrival of a new baby. But when Roee and Adiel Kiviti brought home their newborn daughter Kessem two months ago, they figured that they were as ready as they could be. After all, they’d gone through the same process two years earlier with their son Lev, who, like Kessem, was born with the help of an egg donor and a gestational surrogate in Canada.
“It was as straightforward as one can imagine,” Roee told The Daily Beast, recalling the ease of bringing Lev home in late 2016, the infant’s newly printed Canadian passport in hand, soon to be supplanted by an American one. But this February, when Kessem’s fathers contacted the U.S. consulate in Calgary to obtain a Consular Report of Birth Abroad for their daughter—the legal equivalent of a birth certificate for Americans born outside of the United States—something was different this time.
I agree with this.

These gays wanna have surrogate kids abroad. Donor eggs and sperm and surrogate mother. Then ship the kid here and say he's a citizen.

This is just gays trying to invent their own families.

Mr. Bo,

A child born to a foreign woman, with sperm from a foreign man, and born of foreign soil is a by definition, not a US citizen.
Mr Knoetze,

Yes, according to Donald's new rule, this appears to be the case.

I have an adopted Korean step daughter -

Got her masters from Harvard 4 years ago.

Came here from an orphanage in Seoul at the age of two. Is she now not a US citizen?
