  1. Today
  2. Since birthright citizenship is part of the constitution, stopping it would require a constitutional amendment, and I don't see that getting enough states to ratify it.
  3. Citizenship discussion moved to the Chit Chat thread.
  4. Yesterday
  5. I understand it’s a bit tricky, being, I think, that it’s a consequence of having slavery as a national institution. Hard to untangle, I believe. That’s not so common elsewhere. Again, whole other country.
  6. Charlie couldn't believe he was being granted access to the chocolate factory. His girlfriend had been dead against it for years.
  7. Final day of filming in LA for TBITB. They now head back to NYC to film exterior scenes..
  8. Mayim is a guest on tomorrow's episode of To Tell the Truth on ABC! 😊
  9. Well this is what the Swedish web site for immigration. “Children born in Sweden receive the same citizenship as the parents. If the child's parents are citizens of a country outside the EU, the parents must apply for a residence permit for the child. The child most often receives the same permit as that of the parents.” Now if Lenny got a residency permit, and eventually became citizens, likely the child would too. And then they all could in theory be dual citizens but the US is current,y not so agreeable about dual citizenship.
  10. You're right. It looks as though these days it's more complicated if the baby's parents are foreigners. They don't have to be naturalised as British subjects but at least one of them has to meet certain conditions such as beng resident and working, just coming over for a holiday won't do. If Anu is American and Raj is Indian they'll have to stay for a few years.
  11. That rule has changed. If you r parents are not british. The child will not be entitled to British citizenship. It was change in the mid 80s I think. Sent from my SM-G975F using Tapatalk

  13. A Swedish person has confirmed it would be Swedish so that makes it a dual citizen if the US allowed citizenship to a child born abroad.
  14. O-Level Exam. Question 1. What is Amnesia? a. Memory loss. b. Memory loss. 3. The battle of Hastings.
  15. Everyone born in the UK has British nationality. It can be revoked if they want or have nationality of another country that doesn't allow dual nationality. Raj and Anu's children would have been British if Raj had followed through on going to England. ( Strictly speaking, 'citizenship' is a behaviour although in recent years socialists in particular have begun using it also in the American sense.) A Hostadter with dual nationality woud have made for some interesting fan fiction.
  16. They key words are the ones about air travel. That would NOT have been allowed. For international flights, the cutoff point often is earlier, sometimes as early as 28 weeks, depending on the airline. Obstetric conditions that may be exacerbated by flight or that could require emergency care scare the daylights out of airlines. Yes. Not everyone is like the states, where if you're born here, you're automatically a citizen, and for good reason. I wish frankly that we'd stop doing that.
  17. Most countries do not confer citizenship based on being born in their country. The US is the exception, The baby would not be a dual citizen, it would be a U S citizen.
  18. Then they'd have a swiss army knife, swiss cheese and a swiss child
  19. The baby will get the same nationality as the parents, but if the Hofstaders decides to stay in Sweden they can have two nationalites.
  20. So if hokie3457's idea had happened, with Penny somehow allowed to travel on the plane at such a late stage, and the Hofstadter baby born in Sweden, he or she could have had two passports, assuming American nationality is bestowed on a child born abroad to two American parents.
  21. Last week
  22. Final round voting for The Emmy Awards began yesterday 8/15 and ends on 8/29...
