Bill Sponsorship: Birthright Citizenship Act
Source: H.R.140
Congressional Summary:
Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to consider a person born in the United States "subject to the jurisdiction" of the United States for citizenship at birth purposes if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is:
  1. a U.S. citizen or national,
  2. a lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States, or
  3. an alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Explanation from OpenCongress.org:
This bill would eliminate birthright citizenship for children born to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. Current U.S. law automatically recognizes any person born on American soil as a natural born citizen. Under the bill, only children with at least one parent who is a U.S. citizen, a legal permanent resident, or an undocumented immigrant serving in the military would be considered citizens.

Also see the related House of Representatives bill 2011 H.R.140.
