Exactly. Why didn't she have this in vitro here in the United States? With that in mind, the child would more than likely have a donor that is a citizen *and* it would've been born on U.S. soil to a U.S. citizen mom.

Her desire to go to another country for the procedure *and* her plans to live in the other country means she has no case. Everyone cannot just pop out U.S. anchors whenever they like!

"The incident points out what critics say is a glaring inequity in U.S. citizenship regulations. A child adopted overseas by a U.S. citizen is eligible to become an American, and a baby born in the USA is American even if the parents are not."

Exactly! This inequity is another reason policy needs to fall in line with the Constitution and the law. Children born in the U.S. whose parents are not citizens should not be granted automatic citizenship.

Hey Moron. What I don't like is the continued bashing of Israel that you clowns love to do. You're all a bunch of crazed Muslims with nothing better to do than to use your childish mentality to demean the ONLY country in the Middle East that doesn’t take OUR Foreign Aid and bank the money in private accounts while their people suffer (Remember Arafat??), support terrorists, harbor terrorists, buy arms for terrorists or use it for building Mosques as they incite hatred toward the good old USA. The outright lies, distortions and propaganda are what I'm going after. When Israel attacks Hamas it is retaliation for attacks on them dummy!! Hamas used women and children as human shields. So when Women and children die, you clowns start foaming at the mouth!! They only Attack HAMAS or those responsible for suicide and rocket attack on Israel Dummy!! Israel does not attack for no reason and never has. It is only after they have been provoked!! Learn your History and stop making yourself look like a fool!! The Arabs have muddied the world for decades with their furious protest that their land has been “stolen” from them. One might take seriously such a statement if it came from a pacifist people such as the Tibetans, who had quietly inhabited their land for ages before it was seized by the Communist Chinese in 1950. The claim is laughable coming from the Arabs, who in the early Middle Ages conquered and reduced to slavery and penury ancient peoples and civilizations stretching from the borders of Persia to the Atlantic; who in 1947 rejected an Arab state in Palestine alongside a Jewish state and sought to obliterate the nascent Jewish state; who never called for a distinct Palestinian Arab state until the creation of the terrorist PLO in 1964—sixteen years after the founding of the state of Israel; and who to this moment continue to seek Israel’s destruction, an object that would be enormously advanced by the creation of the Arab state they demand. The Arab claim to sovereign rights west of the Jordan is only humored today because of a fatal combination of world need for Arab oil, leftist Political Correctness that has cast the Israelis as “oppressors,” and, of course, good old Jew-hatred.

Sounds like you'd be much happier living in Israel. Don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya! Happy travels!

Ayreshire, let me clue you in, Israel is not a part of the United States, it's a bastard welfare state that the US is carrying. Giving them money and weapons and they call themselves our Allies? I didn't see Israel fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan. I don't see them fighting in Iran after trying to drag us into a war with them.

No country likes Israel, who are Israel's Allie besides the US?

I'am hoping Israel bombs Iran and kills 10 or 20 Russians working at those sites and than Russia flattens a Israeli city or 2.

If it were up to me, i would cut aid off to all countries outside the US. This is what's going to happen when the fiat currency system collapses anyway. Israel is going to have to find a new sugar daddy.

If this is the case then Israel can have those kids. And by the way the US supports Israel, we'll all be supporting those kids regardless.

While I don’t support her effort to gain dual citizenship for her child it is amazing that she can be denied citizenship for a child because she cannot prove that the egg and sperm were from an American yet when the egg and sperm come from illegal aliens the child is granted automatic citizenship even though the Constitution says that they are not citizens just because the child was physically born in the U.S. This is just another case of Americans being denied rights that are given to illegal aliens.
If only she had been smart enough and lacking morals she could have done what illegal and legal aliens do every day. Enter the U.S. give birth than skip out on the bill her child would be an American citizen. She just did not play the system right.

Most interesting, isn't it? I think it's because she's not in our country, however, I could be wrong.
