In just about every story you’ve read, the liberal media has told us that Mateen “is a US citizen,” repeating the assertion as if it was a mantra.
After all, if he is a US citizen, then if should follow that he can’t be a foreign terrorist and his actions are therefore, not an act of foreign terrorism but simply the actions of an unbalanced mass murderer – a concept that appears to be more comfortable to the liberal media.
If anything, Mateen’s presense in the United States (and his status as a US Citizen) should alert us to why the automatic awarding of citizenship to anchor babies should be a topic of open debate.
According to news reports, Mateen was born in New York to two Afgan parents in 1986. As of the time of publication, no mention is made as to the citizenship status of Mateen’s parents at the time of his birth or the status of either of his parent’s today.
