I have suspected for a while that there would be an attempt remove jus soli
, citizenship by birth on soil alone, in the United States. Ignore that Trump is mentioned in the article, but I could see this become part of a grand immigration reform compromise. If this sounds crazy, consider for a moment how few countries offer unconditional jus soli: ca. 30 out of 200. Most of this list are of specious value if you are a citizenship tourist, meaning jus sanguinis
, citizenship by right by blood, is decisively more common.
Ponder on this, folks in the Western Hemisphere: you are living in quite an exceptional bubble (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/59/Jus_soli_world.svg/640px-Jus_soli_world.svg.png
- Dark Blue for unconditional jus soli. Nearly every country uses some form of jus sanguinis too.)
