    Here's your all-purpose thread/sticky for generic YA news -- odd "Whatever happened to..." questions and posts, questions, and other stuff you just aren't quite sure what to do with.

    Here's last season's:

    Here's an archive of YA "All About..." threads (they used to be much more interesting and active, worth a look if you want to see some blasts from the past):

    I'll have some more guidance from my immigration law firm later, but this isn't really anything that is going to change the citizenship status. There's a lot of misinformation in the 1st cut of articles.

    Here's the general provision:

    The rule clarifies that it only affects children not entitled to U.S. citizenship by birth—meaning that if a child is born abroad to parents who were citizens at the time of its birth, the child would still be recognized as a birthright citizen (although not always). The policy would also not effect a child born to a U.S. citizen parent who has had residence in the United States before the child’s birth.

    That's not 100% accurate, but good enough for initial discussions.

    Just to clarify, Benjamin Mendy is not African-American (or American for that matter). Seems the AP wasn't thinking clearly in their original tweet.

    That's what happens when we choose a label for something (race) that describes something else (place of origin).
