Bill to Redefine U.S. Citizenship Introduced in Congress

immigration reform 2The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) reported today that Representative King, a Republican from Iowa introduced the Birthright Citizenship Act (H.R. 140) on January 5, 2011.  If the bill were to be signed into law, it would amend the immigration law and, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which would redefine who can be deemed a U.S. citizen at birth.  To redefine who is a U.S. citizen will require an amendment to the U.S. Constitution which is very difficult to accomplish.

The 112th Congress appears to have started its session with the intent on making a significant change to a basic right, like who can be a U.S. citizen.
