  • This is Not Only Wrong, It is Stupid

    Trump has really gone too far this time and this is an insult to every member of the armed forces and civil servants who have been stationed overseas serving their country:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/tr...cid=spartandhp

    'The Trump administration said Wednesday that the children of certain U.S. military members and government employees working overseas will no longer automatically be considered United States citizens.'

    'U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a policy on Wednesday rescinding previous guidance stating that children of U.S. service members and other government officials abroad are considered "residing in the United States" and automatically given citizenship under a section of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).'

    'The new rule will not apply to children who acquire citizenship at birth or while residing in the United States, according to the guidance. That includes children born abroad to U.S. citizens who have resided in the United States at some point in the past five years.'

    'The new policy guidance states that USCIS "no longer considers children of U.S. government employees and U.S. armed forces members residing outside the United States as 'residing in the United States' for purposes of acquiring citizenship under INA 320."'

    This is not insulting to every member of the armed forces and civil servants who have been stationed overseas serving their country. What is insulting is the MSM trying to mislead again.

    Interesting that this paragraph from the OP article was left out:

    USCIS issued a clarification to the rule later Wednesday, explaining that the new rule would only affect three categories of people:

    Children of non-U.S. citizens adopted by U.S. citizen government employees or service members;

    children of non-U.S. citizen government employees or service members who were naturalized after the child's birth;

    and children of U.S. citizens who do not meet residency requirements.


    The first one; children of non-US citizens adopted.... my sister went through this when she adopted her daughters. The girls went through the naturalization process like every other legal immigrant.

    The second one; children of non-US citizen.....once the parent is naturalized they can then naturalized the children.

    The third one; residency requirements.... what is the issue with this?
