They must communicate by pointing at pictures in books.

The US does allow dual citizenship. I have it and the US is aware of it. American born children of Mexican parents need to appply for Mexican citizenship if they so desire to become a citizen of Mexico.

Well in all honesty the kids are better off anyway, they will take the knowledge given in America and hopefully apply it in life. I know I would.

However, I think this will prove to be something in future, these children could grow up very angry at the United States.
There will be more people angry if they stay.

I stand corrected. I was unaware that had changed.

Slightly. I can't wait for the next batch of Mexican flag waving morons to take to the streets of large US Cities.

They may as well be waving Iranian flags at this point after the poison pill they pushed the last time.

Some Info....

Have in front of me a copy of a Mexican Birth Certificate issued by the Mexican Consulate for my Great Grandson who was born in Calif.

My Grandaughter was born in Calif. while the father was a Mexican citizen via birth.

They both applied at the Mexican Consulate for a Mexican Birth Certificate and having the proof of parents/ paternal/maternal grandparents from Mexico a Mexican Birth Certificate was issued...thus the boy has a Dual Citizenship and TWO birth Certificates.

This does simplify matters for me as I have property/house in Baja that can be transferred over into my Great Grandsons name saving a hassle after my demise.

Steve

The USA has allowed it for some time, it was actually Mexico that only recently changed the laws as a way to encourage more of it's citizens to leave Mexico and obtain USA citizenship. This gives the Mexican government great power over the USA by millions of it's citizens voting in our elections and taking billions of dollars from here to send back to Mexico.

Will they be in danger of deportation?
Yeah will Mitt Romney be deported?
