  1. Interesting on the list of birthright countries that only countries in the Americas allow birthright citizenship. Based on this list,no countries on the continents of Europe, Asia or Africa now permit it.

      Yes. And only two of the 30 are developed nations … U.S. and Canada.

      • And enacted at a time when the countries were sparsely populated and looking for ways to grow by attracting new settlers to help develop the land and available resources.

              Also military service to speed the path to naturalization. We found ancestors who enlisted practically as soon as they got off the boat.

              • Perhaps we could take a lesson from our past to address the current immigration crisis. Maybe require a minimum four years of military service for all adult illegal immigrants in order to stay in this country and complete qualification for citizenship. Should also apply to the parents of all anchor babies. This would help 1) rebuild our shrinking military numbers and 2) reduce future illegal immigrant inflow by putting a price tag (4 years of service) on entering the country illegally.

  2. That meme at the top of the page with… … leaving out whole phrases. Uh…every word means something. why do you think the meme left out some words? Maybe because they are the key words.
