    The Wide Awakes

    From this website here comes a host of interesting data. (linked in title)

    According to the CIA World Fact Book there are "271 nations, dependent areas, and other entities" on their website.

    The link in the title has "207 nations, dependent areas, and other entities"* listed on it, most of them with the rules about citizenship regarding those countries.
    (*207 is the number arrived at by separating entities such as St. Kitts-Nevis)

    Here is a list of countries that permits automatic citizenship be granted on the basis of simply being born "within the jurisdiction" of the country in question:

    Canadian law specifically states: "Exceptions to this law include...children of parents who were not legal citizens in Canada at the time of birth."



    I want you to notice that Canada is the ONLY country that specifically makes an exception to "illegal aliens".

    That is 51 countries out of 207 on this list......a smidge under 25%.

    That means that 75% of the WORLD does NOT simply hand you citizenship for being born within their jurisdiction.

    We are in the minority on this issue.

    It is time to join up with the rest of the world and state:

    "You are not a citizen just because you are born here."
