Tom Tancredo: Al-Awlaki Case Shows Perils of Birthright Citizenship


"[al Qaida cleric Anwar al-Awlaki] was born in New Mexico in 1971. Both of his parents were Yemeni citizens in the United States on student visas. As a child, he moved to Yemen along with his parents. He returned to the U.S. as an adult on a foreign student visa," says former Rep. Tom Tancredo at the Daily Caller.

"This isn't the first time birthright citizenship has been an issue in a national security-related case. In 2001, Yaser Hamdi was caught fighting with the Taliban and tried as an enemy combatant. Hamdi was born in Louisiana in 1980 to Saudi Arabian parents on temporary work visas. He returned to Saudi Arabia as an infant, but claimed U.S. citizenship and said he could not be held in front of a military tribunal."
