Dear Carl,


Thank you for writing to share your concerns regarding birthright
citizenship in the U.S. I appreciate hearing from you.

I believe that immigrants are a vibrant and vital part of our country,
and they should not have to live in fear as they pursue the American
dream and contribute to the success of the United States. As a child of
immigrants myself, I understand what it’s like to pursue the American
dream first hand, and it is a personal priority of mine to ensure that
dream is accessible to all, regardless of immigration status.

Congressman Brian Babin (R-TX) introduced the “Birthright Citizenship
Act” in the House of Representatives – a bill that would limit
birthright citizenship. This legislation would require at least one
parent of a newborn child to be an American citizen or a legal permanent
resident of the U.S. in order for their child to become a citizen. The
“Birthright Citizenship Act” is currently awaiting consideration by the
House of Representatives, of which I am not a member.

I oppose this bill. I do not believe it works in the best interest of
our country, especially as it conflicts with the 14th Amendment to the
U.S. Constitution. Since its ratification in 1868, the 14th Amendment
has guaranteed all citizens “equal protection of the laws,” whether born
or naturalized in the U.S. – a measure I believe is integral to the
foundations of our nation. While we may disagree on this issue, please
know that I appreciate hearing from you, and I hope you will continue to
contact me about issues of concern to you.

Please know I will continue to support policies that promote equitable
social and economic opportunities for all.

Once again, thank you for writing. Should you have any other questions
or comments, please call my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3553 or
visit my website at padilla.senate.gov. You can also follow me on
Facebook, and Twitter.
