To be fair, I lived in Spain at the time I was pregnant, and at the beginning of my 9th month, my husband and I decided to go spend a weekend in Portugal. I had some false labors there—I thought I might have the baby there, which would have been a nightmare for all the paperwork. Portugal does not grant citizenship to children of foreigners; Spain does (or it did, at the time).
The US simply should not grant automatic citizenship to kids born here unless their parents are legal residents.
I wonder—if the population of anchor babies born in the US and raised in Mexico becomes large enough, can we annex Mexico? On the grounds that it’s holding a large number of our citizens?
