Appearing on BBC Radio, Professor Dimitry Kochenov underlined the difficulties of moving away from the ius soli principle by way of an executive order and also put the current US citizenship acquisition regime in the context of the global legal practice. The US emerges as a more equitable country on this count compared with the European Union, where the last pure ius soli rule was abolished in Ireland in 2004 and all the children of illegal immigrants are then de iure excluded from the society of citizens.
