The Trump administration is on the verge of announcing a plan to limit “birth tourism”, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.
This plan aims to reign in the practice of automatically granting American citizenship to people born in the United Sates whose parents are noncitizens visiting the country.
The move targets “birth tourism,” referring to an underground market where pregnant women travel to the U.S. to have a child that will instantly receive citizenship. According to the 14th Amendment, any child born on American soil is a citizen, no matter the parents’ status.
The State Department has spearheaded the initiative. However, Axios reported that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the Department of Homeland Security administers visa protocols. So far, the administration has not decided how to directly tackle the issue of birth tourism. However, it is looking into giving the State Department the ability to restrict visa provisions to people visiting on short-term business, as well as limiting tourism visas to women the administration believes may be trying to have children in the U.S.
This speculation comes in the wake of President Trump divulging in August and also in October that he wanted to issue an executive order to revoke the right of any child born in America from becoming a citizen if the child’s mother entered the country illegally or is not a citizen. Trump also entertained the idea back in September 2018.
Birth tourism has been one of the key planks of the Trump administration’s immigration agenda.
Birthright citizenship is one of the most controversial issues in American politics. It is also one of the highest stake aspects of mass migration. BLP previously reported that 400,000 anchor babies are born in America annually.
To maintain the relevancy of the Republican Party and keep the historic American nation intact, Trump must at least get something done on birthright citizenship.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
