END BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP: Rep. Sam Graves Co-Sponsors

There are 4 comments on the www.numbersusa.com story from Mar 3, 2011, titled END BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP: Rep. Sam Graves Co-Sponsors . In it, www.numbersusa.com reports that:

Rep. Sam Graves has cosponsored the Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011 introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). The bill currently has 67 co-sponsors and amends current U.S. code to require at least one parent to be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident for a new born to receive automatic citizenship.

The Fourteenth Amendment extends citizenship to all persons born in the U.S. and "subject to the jurisdiction"; it also grants Congress the power to enforce and define the provisions of the amendment.(Section 5)

Since the Civil Rights Act of 1866, Congress has defined Birthright Citizenship through appropriate legislation, which for decades has granted citizenship to newborns with both parents illegal aliens, foreign tourists or temporary foreign workers and students. The Fourteenth Amendment gives Congress the right to define birthright citizenship differently.

The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011 would add to the existing federal code a provision that requires at least one parent of a new born to be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident in order for the new born to receive automatic citizenship.

I like this but i'm worried about the phrase "at least one parent". It should be the mother since her maternity can be documented by her presence at the hospital. Hard to say who the father is and lots of men here legally will be paid to claim fatherhood.

I agree - and citizenship should be based upon the nationality of the mother.
