Seoul Denies Korean Citizenship to "Anchor Babies" Born in America

Very interesting news that those "who have foreign citizenship because their mothers deliberately gave birth in the U.S. or other countries where birthright nationality is recognized... will not be given dual citizenship in Korea" — No Dual Citizenship for 'Anchor Babies'.

These new rules would have applied to a good proportion of the kids in my neighborhood (it's a unique neighborhood). There are a lot of a little "Americans" running around who are in no way, shape, or form American, and neither they or their parents would disagree with that statement. If citizenship is nothing but a piece of paper it's not worth much. Hats off to the Korean government for recognizing that fact.
