Parents Citizens for Newborn Children to Receive Automatic Citizenship
No other wealthy, western nations grant automatic citizenship to those who simply happen to be born within their borders to non-citizens. These nations recognize that citizenship involves more than the physical location of ones birth; it also involves some measure of cultural connection and allegiance. In most cases this means the parents must be citizens of a nation in order for their newborn children to receive automatic citizenship.

Make no mistake, Americans are happy to welcome immigrants who follow our immigration laws and seek a better life here. America is far more welcoming and tolerant of newcomers than virtually any nation on earth. But our modern welfare state creates perverse incentives for immigrants, incentives that cloud the issue of why people choose to come here. The real problem is not immigration, but rather the welfare state magnet.

Hospitals bear the costs when illegal immigrants enter the country for the express purpose of giving birth.

1. However, the constitutional constraint of a "natural born citizen"
to the office of President implies that it has been a factor for many many years in the U. States of America.

And as a result of this policy in Europe, third generation Turkish-Germans who have but a smattering of Turkish are still not German citizens...

Evidently Gastarbeit does not macht Deutsch freiheit.
