DEIRDRE: BREAKING NEWS. IMMIGRATION SERVICES RELEASING NEW RULES FOR CHILDREN BORN IN THE U.S. OR ABROAD TO U.S. CITIZENS. EDWARD LAWRENCE HERE TO BREAK DOWN WHAT IT ALL MEANS. EDWARD? REPORTER: YEAH, THIS IS A MAJOR SHIFT FROM THE ADMINISTRATION HERE. THE CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES SAYING NOW THAT CHILDREN BORN TO U.S. CITIZENS OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES ARE NOT AUTOMATICALLY U.S. CITIZENS. ALSO SAYING THAT CHILDREN COMING INTO OR PARENTS COMING INTO THE UNITED STATES JUST BASICALLY TO HAVE A BIRTH, THAT CHILD IS ALSO NOT AUTOMATICALLY A U.S. CITIZEN. THESE RULES GO INTO EFFECT ON OCTOBER 29th. BRAND NEW RULES THAT WERE JUST POSTED TO THEIR WEBSITE. IT CLARIFIES THE TEMPORARY VISIT TO THE UNITED STATES IS WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT WITH THE CHILDREN COMING IN, THE TEMPORARY VISIT DOES NOT MEAN THAT CHILD THEN IS A U.S. CITIZEN. YOU HAVE TO BE IN THE UNITED STATES FOR SIX WEEKS OR LONGER IN ORDER TO CLAIM CITIZENSHIP AUTOMATICALLY TO THE UNITED STATES. SO A BIG CHANGE, SOMETHING THE PRESIDENT HAS BEEN LOOKING FOR TO HARDEN THE IMMIGRATION LAWS.
