“No” to dual citizenship

German-born children of foreign parents will have to choose between citizenship in their birth country and their parents’ country.

The article on immigration talks about three German states that proposed to allow German-born children of foreign parents to keep dual citizenship, but were denied. Chancellor’s conservative position on immigration is in line with her earlier negative response to Turkish prime minister’s suggestion of having Turkish schools in Germany.

According to this article the group most affected by Germany’s dual-citizenship laws are the descendents of Turkish migrant workers. Though the rule also applies to those with double EU nationalities, it has not been enforced in their cases.
