Deporting a child citizen – the story of the Ruizes

The deportation of child citizens born to irregular parents raises important ethical and legal issues.

In the US, where US born children gain the citizenship by birth, this is a highly controversial issue that involve potentially hundred of thousands of minors. On The New York Times, Sam Dolnick reports the story of NY-born Emily Ruz and her family originally from Guatemala.

Also in the UK, however, there are cases of deportation of children holding UK citizenship as  Caroline Sawyer (2006) shows in an interesting article published in the International Journal of Children’s Rights.
