Senator to End Birthright Citizenship for Illegals, Terrorists’ Kids

( – On Wednesday, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas introduced a bill that would deny birthright citizenship to the offspring of foreign terrorists, illegal immigrants, and alien spies.

The press release lists Senate colleagues Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, J.D. Vance of Ohio, and Ted Cruz of Texas as co-sponsors of the bill.

Cotton has introduced the Constitutional Citizenship Clarification Act, which seeks to formalize the birthright citizenship exemption for ambassadors and invaders in law.

By revising Section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, Cotton’s proposed law would effectively deny birthright citizenship to illegal immigrants, a policy that Biden immigration is firmly in favor of.

The United States of America does not have any obligation to grant birthright citizenship to people born in the country to immigrant parents if they are —

-involved in a hostile occupation or operation in the United States

-residing in the country illegally

-in the country for diplomatic reasons

The Biden administration is expected to have seen, on their watch, over 10 million interactions with migrants at U.S. borders in fiscal year 2024. In a press release, Cotton notes that a large number of undocumented immigrants are young adults and that the Biden administration has prioritized providing legal protections and government benefits to this group. This highlights the fact that many illegal immigrants have managed to enter the United States despite the best efforts of CBP.

In an effort to alleviate the migrant crisis at the southern border, Biden signed an executive order on Tuesday, seemingly being tough on border security. However, the policy really authorizes the entrance of 2,500 migrants every day.

Proponents of stricter immigration policies have found the birthright citizenship question particularly contentious.

An analysis conducted in 2018 by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) revealed that, with the exception of California and Texas, every year, there are more than 300,000 births to undocumented immigrants.

Just last year, Trump began saying at campaign rallies that his administration would pledge to stop birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants and “birth tourism” by signing an executive order on the first day of his second term in office.
