Once again liberals are furthering the decline of the US as a great and respectable country. When it’s this easy for a permanent resident to get naturalized, there is absolutely no reason to give non-citizens a right that never has and never should belong to them. True, it is somewhat lopsided that they pay taxes but don’t get a direct say in how they’re spent, but there must be a discernible difference, otherwise why bother having any restrictions on citizenship?
And on that note, it’s high time that birthright citizenship was abolished and naturalization tests were made tougher. Just because most citizens born to two US citizens know jack squat about their own country does not excuse immigrants, many of whom often are unworthy of becoming citizens, from setting a good example.
