    @ 2:33 If a child is born of at least ONE American citizen or Both American citizens parent(s) abroad, the child IS an American citizen provided the parent(s) completed and submitted form FS-240 "Consular Report Of Birth Abroad" (CRBA) to the nearest US Consulate or Embassy. After that, the parent will receive confirmation of receipt of the FS-240 (CRBA). They will then determine if the parent(s) are eligible to "transmit" American citizenship to that child.

    When approved, the State Department (?) will advise the parent(s) to do certain steps to secure that child's citizenship by applying for and receiving a US passport in the child's name. I think a power of attorney to designate who would be in charge of accompanying the child to travel is required. That first passport will expire as soon as the the child turns 10 i think , but for sure at 18 years old. He/She is an American citizen by birth.

    I went through all these steps in 1973 and by what I read, it's still the same today.

    I think the difference is there are Green Card holders who were/are in the military, government, and business, who are serving abroad, had a child or adopted a child abroad did not know a Green Card does not entitle the parent to American citizenship automatically.

    What Lawful Permanent Resident Status Means.

    A lawful permanent resident is someone who has been granted the right
    to live in the United States indefinitely. Permanent residents are given
    what's known as a “green card,” which is a photo ID card that proves their status.

    Maybe if a parent or both apply for US citizenship retroactively (after the child's birth), then retroactively apply for citizenship for their child/children, then it might work for them. I don't think they can deny a US military veteran US citizenship IF THEY APPLY for it, then claim citizenship for their children as a derivative. USE an immigration attorney in this case.

    Unless you are native American . You are an
    Immigtant. Period.
    Immigration is in our
    Dna. It's part of our
    Democracy. It has and
    Always be us rather than
    them. When the right demonizes anyone who
    Is of color it affects all of
    Us. It won't change because of trump. It will
    Go back to normal when he
    Is gone. Soon I hope.

    If this is what he does to American children in its military you better think again what allies are thinking about Trump and America. We are watching. We are also wondering how Americans abroad might think of their citizenship when traveling and their safety given how this administration treats its military and children.

    This Moron is messing with the Military, this is crossing the line with these men and women don't mess with the Military and their family, they are making sacrificing themselves and moving their family everywhere all to service. This Moron has no shame and Stephen Miller. Now what is being done to stop this and it does not matter as long as they serve they have rights, they are not breaking any laws, this Moron is so wrong.

    It's not only wrong, but it's also illegal. For the millionth time, Trump ignores the US heritage and constitutions and makes illegal executive orders – that are hurting people. He's a dictator. Democrats betray the US people when hesitating to impeach. The US people cannot afford to wait any longer.

    It seems as though the policy isn’t worth disrupting. The system is in place to give fair advance to family members and soldiers who need financial help. Still would a soldier ebb military cost to fund a welfare system outside the States it’s complex and it’s strictly military Its intelligible to Bring to the American people’s attention so outright he said FITTY LINE he said “Congress Give …” So as of now the heart break hotel is closed

    OPINION:

    WHAT MAY BE PRESIDENT TRUMP'S REASON, BUT YOU DON'T GIVE HIS REASON.

    THAT'S NOT NEW.

    THERE ARE FILIPINOS WHO WERE AMERICAN ILLIGITIMATE MESTIZOS, CHILDREN OF THEIR MOMS DURING THE WORLD WAR TWO, SONS OR DAUGHTERS OF THEIR AMERICAN-SOLDIER DADS WHO WENT BACK TO AMERICA, LATER AFTER THE WAR, AND THEY NEVER SAW OR KNEW THEIR DADS SINCE THEIR CHILDHOOD.

    THAT MAY ALSO BE TRUE IN EUROPE.

    BUT, THAT MAY HARDLY HAPPEN IN MIDDLE EAST LIKE IN IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN, BECAUSE THE WARS THERE ARE WARS IN TERRORISM PLACES.

    IN ISLAMIC PLACES OF DIFFERENT ISLAMIC ENVIRONMENTS, THE AMERICAN- SOLDIERS THERE WERE UNABLE TO HAVE LOCAL MUSLIM WOMEN, AS THEIR SOLDIER- WOMEN.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP MAY BE TRYING TO EVADE ANY FALSE INFORMATIONS OF PEOPLE FROM OTHER NATIONS; INVENTING REASONS THAT THEY ARE CHILDREN OF AMERICANS OR AMERICAN- MILITARY SOLDIERS.

    they are called "anchor babies"…….every country who has their soldiers on foreign lands should be responsible it they make boom boom with locals resulting in a child while he gets transfer away leaving a mother to support that child with no recourse or resources to find the father…..it's called parental responsibility…..many of you complain of fatherless families so think again.

    US Armed Forces sees no end of several battle fronts most linked to the preemptive war against the terrorists, thus they'are illegally at best recruiting more medical doctors and other military personnel from foreign sources through illegal means.. worst yet, testing both their arsenal and drugs on humans from other foreign countries especially those they colonized in early years..

    Yes, I'm going to compare Trump to Hitler, because he is so obviously doing things straight out of Hitler's playbook. My mom was a German who lived under both Hitler and Stalin. One of her grandfathers was listed by the Nazi's as a "minority," probably because he was Polish, even though he was a German citizen, and was treated badly because of it. I was born in Germany and automatically became an American citizen, because my dad was a US soldier stationed in West Berlin, so under this new law I would have to be shipped back to Germany, since my mom remained "green card" her whole life. Trump creates enemies out of immigrants, Muslims, Puerto Ricans, liberals, the free press, etc., etc., etc., so that his base will seek his protection and rally behind him, just like Hitler did.

    Joe McCarthy's big mistake was to go after the military. Trump could be blundering into the same error. People who'll accept and/or endorse all kinds of demagoguery and scapegoating elsewhere may well draw the line here.
