Early last month I was scanning the internet and ran across a posting at Fox News reporting that children of foreign diplomats enjoy a “Super Citizen” status in the United States. Reading on I found that some are actually acquiring Social Security cards and citizenship.
Here is a link to the article written by Elizabeth Robichaux Brown, and you can form your own opinion:
The last paragraph of the article notes “there is one thing that everyone engaged in the debate agrees on: children born to foreign diplomats are not ‘subject to the jurisdiction’ of the United States and are not to be granted U.S. citizenship.”
I am troubled by this situation. It is bad enough that our Immigration Laws are being abused and ignored, and now foreign diplomats are utilizing their special status to acquire unique privileges for their children at the expense of the abused American taxpayer.
Your Commander suspects that this issue will just die away in the Halls of Congress, and the State Department will support this abuse of our immigration policies in the name of diplomatic immunity. Don’t count on any Democrats voting against any potential new voters either.
What do you think of this situation? I am troubled.
