Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know about your country, but in Switzerland it is very hard to get citizenship, so there are families that have been here for 2, 3 maybe even more generations who aren't yet "Swiss" (this is common...a person without citizenship has a "C" permit - permanent resident...but not citizen)...even though their families have been born here, and know no other land as their home but here. But if this new law passes, then if someone screws up, the whole family is gone. To...where?? Now to me, that's absurd.
