In his short time campaigning for president, Donald Trump has brought several pertinent issues to light. Among these issues is the prevalence of illegal immigrants coming into the United States to give birth to children and grant them citizenship.
Now, several Texas counties are refusing to issue birth certificates for children that are born to undocumented parents. This policy could now threaten the state’s relationship with Mexico, the country warns.
The notice was released in a brief filed in support of illegal immigrant parents who are suing Texas after being denied birth certificates for their children. The refusal came even after they provided ID cards used by the Mexican Consulate.
Texas, however, maintains that consulate-issued identification can be unreliable.
What do you think? Is Texas wrong in denying citizenship?
