Santa Barbara, CA – August 5, 2010 – America is one of the few first-world democracies that grants automatic birthright citizenship to babies born by women illegally in the United States. A Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) Issues piece, "American Jackpot: The Remaking of America by Birthright Citizenship," explains how and why the 14th amendment is incorrectly interpreted and exploited, thus working against American interests. This report suggests ways to end birthright citizenship that lures illegal entrants as well as legal immigrants who come to exploit and devalue American citizenship.
Also available on video: Birthright Citizenship & Allegiance to America in which Chapman University School of Law Dean Dr. John Eastman explains in detail why the 14th Amendment does not give the children of illegal immigrants–or legal tourists for that matter–automatic citizenship at birth. Dr. Eastman outlines three potential methods to correct the crisis and encourages you to study up on the issue and then call your congressional representatives.
