Defending Birthright Citizenship

 


Washington  -The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution is enshrined in U.S. history as the cornerstone of American civil rights, ensuring due process and equal protection under the law to all persons.  Equally important is the Fourteenth Amendment's affirmation that all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to its jurisdiction are, in fact, U.S. citizens - regardless  their parents' citizenship. 

Over the years, however, several bills have been introduced that would deny U.S. citizenship to children whose parents are in the U.S. illegally or on temporary visas. As restrictionist groups and legislators continue in their attempts to restrict or repeal birthright citizenship in State Houses and the U.S. Congress, it's important to remember that ending birthright citizenship would be unconstitutional, impractical, expensive, complicated and would not stop illegal immigration.
 
The American Immigration Council's Immigration Policy Center (IPC) has developed a range of resources which present a strong case for maintaining and celebrating our tradition of birthright citizenship - a tradition which is intimately tied to our heritage of civil rights.
 
To read IPC's resources on birthright citizenship, see:

 

The Immigration Policy Center (IPC), established in 2003, is the policy arm of the American Immigration Council. IPC's mission is to shape a rational national conversation on immigration and immigrant integration. Through its research and analysis, IPC provides policymakers, the media, and the general public with accurate information about the role of immigrants and immigration policy on U.S. society. IPC reports and materials are widely disseminated and relied upon by press and policy makers. IPC staff regularly serves as experts to leaders on Capitol Hill, opinion-makers and the media. IPC is a non-partisan organization that neither supports nor opposes any political party or candidate for office.
