Birthright Citizenship

BirthrightCitizenshipThe current debate about the president’s recent executive order assumes that children of illegal immigrants who are born here should automatically be considered U.S. citizens. But a Texas law school professor, Lino Graglia, challenges the policy of “birthright citizenship.”

He believes this policy is based upon an incorrect politicized interpretation of the 14th amendment, which includes the phrase “not subject to any foreign power” and therefore makes it clear that it was not intended to grant citizenship to anyone with divided allegiance.

In a spiritual sense, some people consider themselves members of the Kingdom of Heaven because their parents are sincere believers and dedicated disciples of Jesus Christ. This is a false belief, based on an incorrect private perception.

Jesus said that unless we are “born again” or “born from above” we cannot see the Kingdom of God (John 3:3). Perceiving or “seeing” the kingdom of God and entering it are impossible without being “born from above.” Only then can we become God’s children and enjoy birthright citizenship in His Kingdom.
