Without the right to become American by birth, we would never know these famous people

The legendary Walt Disney - who built an empire that includes amusement parks, movie studios, and a record label - was born in the U.S. to immigrant parents.

Another birthright citizen was Joan Rivers, a prominent television personality who completely changed what gets talked about on the red carpet. She was born to Russian parents.

Renee Zellweger, famous for portraying Bridget Jones, also became an American citizen for being born in the U.S. She was born in Texas to a Swiss father and a Norwegian mother.

Bruce Lee was another legendary figure in the entertainment industry who became an American because of birthright.

Revoking this right “will prevent future Walt Disneys, Bruce Lees, and Colin Powells from becoming U.S. citizens. And it will set the county back more than 100 years,” wrote KC Morgan of Inquistr.

Ironically, Trump himself is the grandson of a German immigrant. His grandfather, Friedrich Trump, fled Germany in 1885 at the age of 16 so he would not be forced into three years of military service. He went on to build a real estate empire.
