Why is Birthright Citizenship right for the US?

What I want to talk about today is this Birthright Citizenship issue. Apparently England does not have birthright citizenship. That is just a rumor I asked an english person about it in December, but I have not researched it. And in truth it may be right for their country because England is a very old country - unlike the US.

Right now you will see that many Senators and Legislators are fighting to change the citizenship laws here in the US. We need to think about this very clearly. For one second stop thinking about what they THINK they are doing and think about why did we start birthright citizenship in the first place......

Birthright citizenship started because radicals were trying to say that the children of slaves were not US Citizens. They even went as far as to say anyone of African decent was not American.

The US was started as a melting pot of all the countries of the world. How can certain people change the rules any certain point in history.

The US is and has always been a compilation of all people of the world. It reminds me of my children playing. My daughter is 8 and my son is 4, and she will be playing a game and change the rules periodically to suit her needs.

That is not how it works. We need honesty, equality, integrity and fairness.

Birthright citizenship is a foundation of our country.
Here is a group of people that have joined together as humanitarians and leaders to preserve our civil rights.
