Trump officials: Citizenship of children of US service members overseas affected

According to a a policy alert released Wednesday by US Citizenship and Immigration Services, children of US service members and US government employees living abroad may not automatically become US citizens, if their parents have not lived in the US for a required period of time. About a 100 will be affected annually, according to a Defense Department official.

The policy update doesn't deny citizenship to the children of US gov employees or members of the military born abroad. This policy aligns USCIS’ process with the Department of State’s procedures for these children - that's it. Period.

I've learned from experience that when the headline is this sensational, fucking read the article and 9 times out of ten, it's a huge nothing burger.

While the headlines are written over broadly to imply that citizen service members' kids won't get citizenship, I think it is significant that legal permanent residents' kids wouldn't get citizenship. Ultimately, I think children of legal permanent residents born in the US or on military/civil service abroad should have their citizenship and legal status tied to their parents' until they are legal adults, at which point they could reasonably be given citizenship. If they were born outside the US is probably a different story.

There is absolutely no laws preventing the children of service people and embassy workers being American citizens if they are born abroad. This is the fake news attempting to undermine Trumps EO which stops birthright citizenship of kids born to illegal aliens. Fuck the fake news media.

The headlines are blatantly misleading. They should include "non-citizen employees" in the headlines. A non-citizen employee of the US government does not confer automatic US citizenship to their children, even if those children are born on a US military base or consulate.
