Petition in Support of the Adoptee Citizenship Act

We, the undersigned individuals and organizations, urge the United States Congress to support the Adoptee Citizenship Act (ACA) of 2018, which is a bipartisan bill that provides citizenship to individuals who were legally adopted to the United States as a child but never obtained U.S. citizenship.

The Adoptee Citizenship Act simply supports the original intent of the CCA by ensuring that all intercountry adoptees that were adopted by U.S. citizen parents have U.S. citizenship. We ask Congress to close the loophole left by the CCA immediately by passing the Adoptee Citizenship Act.

Sincerely,
