#TheList: Developed countries that give “birthright” citizenship

HERE IS A LIST OF ALL THE DEVELOPED NATIONS OF THE WORLD THAT OFFER BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP TO THE NEWBORN BABIES OF TOURISTS AND ‘ILLEGAL’ ALIENS:

1. United States.  That’s right, the ONLY ONE.  Every other modern developed nation in the world has gotten rid of birthright citizenship policies. Yet, most of U.S. news media and politicians the last two weeks have ridiculed the 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 (ZERO-NONE-ZILCH) folks, the U.S. ‘Stands alone.’  There used to be all kinds of developed countries that gave away their citizenship as freely as we do in the U.S. but one by one they all have recognized the folly, recklessness, lunacy, stupidity of that policy.

–  SOME MODERN COUNTRIES THAT RECENTLY ENDED THEIR BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP POLICY:   Canada was the last non-U.S. Holdout.  Illegal aliens stopped getting citizenship for their newborn 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–  New Zealand repealed in 2006.

–  Ireland repealed in 2005.

–  France repealed in 1993.

–  India repealed in 1987.

–  The United Kingdom repealed in 1983.

–  Portugal repealed in 1981.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 who stay 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(Customs Border Protection) reports that of those apprehended illegally crossing the border, China is number one.

Wake up Democrat’s in America!  END BIRTHRIGHT FOR TOURIST, FOREIGN CITIZENS AND ESPECIALLY ‘ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS.’

Illegal aliens from China, India, Russia, the Middle East, and a host of other nations are flooding the United States.  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.

  • Worth pointing out that the US is also more or less the only country founded on the principle of welcoming immigration. 99% of the US political ruing class today a descended from immigrants. Can you trace your family back to the Mayflower? They were immigrants. Irish, Scottish, English, French, German or Italian roots? They were immigrants. Unless your name is something like Running Bear or Dances With Wolves then you’re descended from immigrants. And immigration has hugely benefited the US.
    Sensible immigration control is a valid subject for discussion, and like the US the vast majority of countries have strict immigration controls and decide how many people to allow in and who.
    Maybe birthright citizenship should be ended? But if such a basic right can be ended then why not amend gun ownership rights? A lot more American citizens are killed every year by guns than by illegal immigrants or anchor babies.

    • just because there are horrible crimes commited by some American citizens, (just as there are by citizens in any other country) does NOT justify anyone being here illegally in this country. And it doesn’t justify the notion of wanting to give illegal aliens voting rights nor any other rights that are given to legal immigrants and legal citizens. You are twisting the issues
