How would you feel like if you had no citizenship anywhere?

because of my political affiliation in America Mexico has stripped me of natural born citizenship.

Not sure if I care, i was only born there, dont have any life experiences there, everything in my life has been American, education, conditioning etc...

I'v been here since I was 3. Due to foster care the USA made me a permanent resident and my parents were US DHHS.

This was something forced on me.

How would you feel for have no citizenship anywhere?

Who would you blame,, USAs treaties with Mexico, or Mexico taking advantage of unthought out laws and treaties?

Like I said, who would i side with, I have only known 1 way of life, American.

  • Sounds to me like you would go with the country you know, in your case, the US.

  • That is interesting..... Do you know how many other people have had similar situations where the Gov't has stripped people of their natural born citizenship?

  • Im sure there is many, children of aliens who get taken into foster care who grow up American and no other way of life are bound to be in the same situation, or they don't care to even investigate.

    I only investigated because I was curious. Should have kept my nose where it belongs.

    But oh well.

  • I'd be a little sad, but it sounds like you do have citizenship here...if you don't, why not?

  • exactly, sometimes I feel like a Jew would have. I havent become a citizen yet because i have to wait for an oath ceremony, it takes years.

    I missed my appointment-nothing i had control over, im afraid im gonna have to wait another 4 years for another appointment.

    Now I know they dont like to re-schedule! I'm a little bummed about that.

  • I wish you the best of luck.... Maybe you could write a book about your life experiences and others like you who have stripped of their NBC.. I bet many could learn from yours and others experiences..
