The Texas Tribune has the Washington Post story U.S. is denying passports to Americans along the border, throwing their citizenship into question.
His official American birth certificate shows he was delivered by a midwife in Brownsville, at the southern tip of Texas. He spent his life wearing American uniforms: three years as a private in the Army, then as a cadet in the Border Patrol and now as a state prison guard.
But when Juan, 40, applied to renew his U.S. passport this year, the government’s response floored him. In a letter, the State Department said it didn’t believe he was an American citizen.
As he would later learn, Juan is one of a growing number of people whose official birth records show they were born in the United States but who are now being denied passports — their citizenship suddenly thrown into question. The Trump administration is accusing hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Hispanics along the border of using fraudulent birth certificates since they were babies, and it is undertaking a widespread crackdown on their citizenship.
Don’t get too comfortable because you aren’t Hispanic, or were not born near the border in Texas. This is just an example of what schemes the USA government can dream up if they want to get rid of you.
You think you have rights that the U.S.A. Constitution guarantees you as a citizen? They can just deny that you are a citizen. What foreign country is going to take you as a citizen if you were actually born in the U.S.A.? If you can’t prove that you were born where you were actually born, what chance do you have of proving you were born someplace else?
