Congressman Steve King Introduces Outlaw Baby Bill, Says: “I Know of No Other Country”

Alright, so that’s a bit of a quote out of context.  What Rep. Steve King of Iowa really wrote this month was in response to citizenship as a birthright in the United States.  If you’re born in the United States, you’re a citizen, and it’s as simple as that.  The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees it — and Steve King is upset about it.  Rep. King is so upset that babies born in the United States are granted citizenship that he has introduced H.R. 140, a bill to revoke the citizenship of American babies given to them as a birthright.  In trying to justify his behavior in introducing this baby-outlawing bill, he wrote that “I know of no other country in the world that does that.”

The extent of what Steve King doesn’t know is really quite astonishing.  A full 30 countries grant citizenship to all babies born there.  They are:

Antigua and Barbuda

Argentina

Barbados

Belize

Bolivia

Brazil

Cambodia

Canada

Chile

Colombia

Costa Rica

Dominica

Ecuador

El Salvador

Fiji

Grenada

Guatemala,

Guyana

Honduras

Jamaica

Lesotho

Malaysia

Mexico

Nicaragua

Pakistan

Panama

Paraguay

Peru

Saint Kitts and Nevis,

Saint Lucia

Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

Trinidad and Tobago

Tuvalu

United States

Uruguay

Venezuela

    This illustrates the level of stupidity that the “government” is about – with all the dire warnings and imminent threats from climate change, THIS is what they focus on.
