Media? Get it wrong?
4 WAYS MOST MEDIA GETTING BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP WRONG
Send the fax in the red Action Box below to tell your Members of Congress to support legislation that would end Birthright Citizenship.
first day of media coverage of Donald Trump's new stand against
birthright citizenship has mostly included misinformation and faulty
Here are the big facts that need to emerge to clear up the confusion that many in the media (especially on TV) are sowing:
No. 1: Anchors, not enticements, are main problem of birthright citizenship
big problem of birthright citizenship is that the babies who are born
to illegal aliens (who already are settled in the U.S.) become anchors
who keep their illegally present parents from leaving the U.S. and going
back home. Pres. Obama proved this in 2014 with his DAPA executive
action that offered work permits and legal residency to millions of
illegal aliens because they had children who are U.S. citizens based on
No. 2: Not clearly in the Constitution
is totally unacceptable journalistic practice for reporters to state
without attribution that the Constitution requires giving citizenship to
the births of tourists, foreign students, temporary foreign workers and
at NumbersUSA believe the evidence is strongest as presented by experts
who believe Congress can pass a simple law to end birthright
citizenship -- just as governments of many countries have done in recent
years. This is an issue that deserves a clear and modern ruling.
No. 3: Trump not first candidate arguing against birthright citizenship
can look at our 2016 Presidential Grade Card to see that Trump is
following these other presidential candidates in opposing birthright
4: Eliminating birthright citizenship would not fill the nation with
millions of people "without a country" -- unless we intend to continue
to promote mass illegal immigration
like to cite reports from immigration expansionists that project
millions of "limbo" residents in the first decades after ending
birthright citizenship. But these studies are based on illegal
immigration continuing to be allowed by our government.
never heard of any elected official or major organization who has
suggested taking away U.S. citizenship from the people in this country
who already were given it as anchor babies. That is another false alarm
I've seen in some media reports.
is disconcerting to see the alarmism of so many in the media about the
fact that birthright citizenship is being brought up for a policy
discussion. Let's get rid of the misinformation and straw men arguments
and have a calm discussion about what we need as a country.
