  • Legally adopted children should not be subject to deportation

    If a baby or child is legally adopted by American citizens the child should not be subject to deportation later in life. A legal adoption should guarantee that a child will be an American citizen. Deporting people that were legally adopted as children is wrong and should not take place.

  • American parents should equal american children

    If you are an American person or couple and decide to adopt a child from another country I think he or she should gain automatic American Citizenship. I don't think a child should be to blame for something that he had no control over. You cant expect a 3 year old to fill out citizenship forms.

  • Yes, they should

    That baby didn't choose to be adopted. He was too little to even realize what happened. Since he's been here for 40 years, it really doesn't make sense to deport him. Babies adopted from other countries, as long as the adoptions are legal, should absolutely get automatic citizenship so nothing like this happens again.

  • Yes, they should.

    He was adopted. That should have taken care of his citizenship. Whether his adoptive parents did not know this or they simply did not care, he should not have to be deported to a country that he has little to no memory of and does not have any connections to.
