Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida has proposed a bold bill called the ‘End Birthright Citizenship Fraud Act of 2023’. This legislation aims to change birthright citizenship in the United States. The new law would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to deny automatic citizenship to children born in the U.S. unless their parents are U.S. nationals, lawfully admitted refugees, permanent residents or performing active services in the U.S. Armed Forces. The proposed change is rooted in the interpretation of the 14th Amendment’s ‘subject to the jurisdiction thereof’ clause. This bill comes in the backdrop of ongoing debates surrounding immigration and the situation at the southern border. Conservative commentator Charlie Kirk applauded the legislation, asking all Republicans to back it, while critics are examining its constitutional implications and potential impact on the immigration system.
