Birthright Citizenship Act to Rep. Steve King
Wendy Cervantes (Former Staff)Children of Immigrants
This letter from First Focus Campaign for Children (FFCC) president Bruce Lesley was sent to Congressman Steve King (R-IA) on January 23, 2013 to express our opposition to King’s Birthright Citizenship Act (HR140). The letter details how this bill would punish all children born in this country by, among other outcomes, denying children immediate access to critical services for babies, which would potentially increase our already high infant mortality rate, and increasing the number of undocumented and stateless children in the U.S.
