U.S., Canada Only Two Developed Nations to Grant Birthright Citizenship

34 views

Basically, the only countries granting birthright citizenship are:

  • The U.S. and Canada,
  • The countries trying to break into the U.S., and
  • Countries without land borders to protect

The U.S. and Canada are the only two economically-developed nations that grant birthright citizenship to illegal alien offspring. Thus, none of the 38 countries considered “developed” by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) outside of North America grant citizenship to aliens' children who are born on their soil.

Japan doesn’t grant birthright citizenship. Neither do France, Germany, Japan, or even the Holy See.

But, we do - and 400,000 children of illegal aliens get automatic U.S. citizenship every year.

The list of developed-nation birthright laws was compiled by Numbers USA. This same group also published a list of the 30 nations worldwide confirmed to grant birthright citizenship. Twenty of those 30 nations are in the Americas (North, South, Central).

Every one of the ten nations outside the Americas that grant birthright citizenship is completely surrounded by water - and, thus, has no land border to protect from illegal aliens simply walking or driving into the country.

Countries Outside the Americas Granting Birthright Citizenship:

  1. Antigua and Barboda
  2. Barbados
  3. Dominica
  4. Fiji
  5. Grenada
  6. Jamaica
  7. Saint Kitts and Nives
  8. St. Lucia
  9. Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
  10. Trinidad and Tobago
