    Being born here to citizen parents =/= earning the right to pass on citizenship, though. It is the exact opposite of earning said right.

    there are only two type sof people who have done something to earn their citizenship: naturalized citizens who came here from another nation and went through the naturalization process and those who have performed civil services such as serving in the military. Everyone else, which is the vast majority, did nothing to earn their citizenship.

    So let's say it hadn't been. What would have been the consequences?
    No, I am not claiming that.

    Me too. Is that just Illinois law, or is it national?

    Good question. I don't know. Probably Illinois. I had to pass an Illinois Constitution test in 8th grade too.

    In an ideal USA, every citizen has obeyed the law and contributed to the administration of the union, through various means. That is the citizenship contract with the union.

    In an ideal USA the immigration policies, government paralyzation and inaction, and bigoted nativists don’t help fabricate millions of said criminals.
