Foreign-born children of US citizens won't receive birthright citizenship [pdf] (uscis.gov)

Is this the correct incentive to give to diplomats, members of the military, etc, that we as a nation want and need to be physically overseas?

Is this an onion article?

It's utterly false.

The change affects only children born of NON-citizens who later become US citizens, and all it means is that they have to file the appropriate form to claim citizenship for eligible children.

There is no change in who is eligible to claim citizenship. The submitter title is false.
