And abolish jus soli


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jus_soli

Jus soli (Latin: right of the soil),[1] is a right by which nationality or citizenship can be recognized to any individual born in the territory of the related state.


The US and Canada are the only two first world countries that recognize "Citizenship by birth"


Bizarre how "unenlightened" America is with everything else worldly by European standards, but this is one thing we "allow"

So, you're saying we should make illegal alien anchor babies citizens?  

Do you guys actually read threads, or just jump in whole hog to spout out reactionary crapola?

The OP is saying we should do away with granting automatic citizenship to people who jump the border and pop out babies, but
using some dark, sarcastic humor. Guess that's just too highbrow for some of you, huh?

Jus soli is crapola, and should be abolished. It's like saying you can keep whatever you can steal as long as you can make it to
the parking lot before they catch you.

Next time one of the resident pseudo-intellectuals brings up how we need to emulate Europe, bring this up and watch them crawfish.

So in Europe, you are not automatically a citizen by being born there?

I believe a lot of countries use jus sanguinis to gain automatic citizenship.

Map's a bit off.  France still has jus soli, it's just a bit different.  Requires an active request on the part of the individual.

Head of the IMF stated we should be like France and have our debt rise to 90% of GDP instead of the current 70%.  The Europeans are insane.

It is a bit more complex than that, most require, now, that a parent have resided there for quite some time.
