Calling for an End to "Birthright Citizenship"

Rep. Nathan Deal (R-GA) is proposing an end to "birthright citizenship," the practice that allows any child born on U.S. soil to automatically become a citizen, regardless of their parents' status.

Supporters of Deal's measure note that this practice has been abused in recent years by illegal immigrants looking to gain a legal foothold in the U.S.

Deal's plan would allow babies born in the U.S. to be granted automatic citizenship if at least one of their parents is a U.S. citizen or national, a legal permanent resident of the U.S., or actively serving in the U.S. military.

Seems reasonable enough, unless of course you support illegal immigration.
