Shocker: US Reviews Immigration Law***Why Your US-Born Baby Might Not Become A Citizen

A review of the American Citizenship and Immigration Services law is set to revoke automatic citizenship for non-resident children born in the country.

The new policy is likely to revoke citizenship rights for children born in the USA but have not been residing there for a period of time.

Presently, the 14th Amendment gives right of citizenship to all persons born on the US soil.

The 14th Amendment reads:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

The policy guidance says it “clarifies that temporary visits to the United States do not establish U.S. residence and explains the distinction between residence and physical presence in the United States.”

Ken Cuccinelli, the Acting Director of the USCIS, in a statement released on his Twitter, stated that the policy guidance does not affect birthright citizenship and children born a U.S. citizen.

“The policy manual update today does not affect who is born a U.S. citizen. It only affects children who were born outside the US.”
