Numbers USA For Lower Immigration Levels, the go-to site for all things combating illegal immigration and how to stop its bloodsucking drain on not only the USA’s economy but the destruction of The Constitution, present a case for ending Birthright Citizenship
The United States government currently recognizes any person born on American soil as a “natural born” citizen and ignores the Constitutional requirement that one must also be “subject to the jurisdiction” of the United States in order to automatically gain citizenship. The U.S. is one of only two industrialized nations (Canada) to still grant automatic citizenship to newborns.
Despite several media reports, the U.S. Supreme Court has never ruled on whether or not children born to illegal-alien parents, or to parents visiting the United States with temporary visas, are entitled to birthright citizenship.
Birthright citizenship for illegal aliens not only rewards illegal immigration and adds to the population growth, it also acts as an “anchor” for illegal-alien family members to remain in the United States and eventually legalize their status.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has introduced the Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011 that would eliminate the practice of Birthright Citizenship by requiring at least one parent of children born in the United States to be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident.

The one flaw, and it is a biggie, is NumbersUSA does not clearly clarify birthright citizenship from one citizen parent still does not make the baby a natural born citizen which is A CHILD BORN TO CITIZEN PARENTS, CITIZENS AT THE TIME OF CHILD’S BIRTH. (Learn more)
