This bill would close a loophole in the Child Citizenship Act which left thousands of internationally-adopted children without U.S. citizenship, ensuring they have the ability to pursue the American dream without fear of deportation.
Individuals who were born overseas and legally adopted before the Child Citizenship Act’s enactment and weren’t granted citizenship should have to go through the naturalization process even if it means deportation.
