Rights Group: Birthright Citizenship Under Attack

WASHINGTON - A group of state legislators announced yesterday their intention to pass state-based legislation that would challenge birthright citizenship currently protected in the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This is the latest attempt to introduce bills that would deny U.S. citizenship to children whose parents are in the U.S. without authorization 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 unauthorized immigration.

The Immigration Policy Center (IPC) has developed a range of resources which present a strong case for maintaining and celebrating birthright citizenship and our civil rights heritage.

 

 

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.
