U.S.’s Birthright Citizenship System Is Out Of Whack With Rest Of The Developed World

While liberals and Democrats often point to other nations — particularly to Europe — as a guide for what U.S. policy should be, when it comes to birthright citizenship, the latest flash point in the presidential campaign, the U.S. is out of step with most of the rest of the developed world.

    Donald Trumps’ grandfather ran a hotel in BC; this abrogates his US citizenship.
    And his mother isn’t US-born.
