Trump Cancels Automatic Citizenship For Children Of US Citizens Born Abroad by 9jahotblog: 6:28am On Aug 31, 2019
A new policy alert released by the US Citizenship and
Immigration Services under President Trump's
administration, has cancelled automatic citizenship for the
children of some US service members and US government
employees living abroad and children of non-citizens born in
the United States.
Under the new citizenship policy which will be effective from
October 29 as announced on Wednesday August 28, US
citizens who gave birth to their children abroad are expected
to apply for U.S. citizenship ahead of the child's 18th
birthday.
Non-citizens are also expected to stay for at least 6 weeks
in the US before their children born in the country will be
considered citizens.
“Effective October 29, 2019, children residing
abroad with their U.S. citizen parents who are U.S.
government employees or members of the U.S.
armed forces stationed abroad are not considered
to be residing in the United States for acquisition
of citizenship,” the policy read.
“Similarly, leave taken in the United States while
stationed abroad is not considered residing in the
United States even if the person is staying in
property he or she owns.
“Therefore, U.S. citizen parents who are residing
outside the United States with children who are not
U.S. citizens should apply for U.S. citizenship on
behalf of their children under INA 322 8, and must
complete the process before the child’s 18th
birthday.
“The child of a member of the U.S. armed forces
accompanying his or her parent abroad on official
orders may be eligible to complete all aspects of
the naturalization proceedings abroad. This
includes interviews, filings, oaths, ceremonies, or
other proceedings relating to naturalization.
“Applications filed on or after October 29, 2019 are
subject to this policy. The policy in place before
October 29, 2019 applies to applications filed
before that date. Children who have already been
recognized through the issuance of a Certificate of
Citizenship as having acquired U.S. citizenship
under INA 320 are not affected by this policy
change.”

Basicaly, a child born to American parents in Nigeria is stateless.

Since they don't have US citizenship yet and Nigeria does not give automatic citizenship to people born in Nigeria and their parents or grandparents are not Nigerians

Technically true because you're forcing a citizenship that the child may not want when he or she is old enough to understand the implications cheesy

That is not good idea, two American citizens having their child outside US, their child is supposed to be qualified automatically as US citizen if all evidence shows that they are the real owner of the child.

For foreigners giving birth in US, their child should wait till 18 years to qualify, that is the standard in EU.

Nigeria own is the most difficult one and need to amended since you cannot be a Nigerian unless if your parents or grandparents is a Nigerian.
