Children born in South Africa to foreign parents should be provided for by South African government. The reasons are now official as it has been pronounced by the court.

There have been a great agitation by South Africans that immigrants, foreigners and their children should be treated as immigrants and foreigners and nothing more.

However, the court have just given a ruling that children born by immigrant and foreign parents are citizens of south African and as such south Africa as a nation are responsible for their upkeep. This ruling cut across all the children of immigrants and foreigners irrespective of whether their parents enter South Africa legally or illegally.

This ruling by the court have upset the mind and heart of South Africans, according to South Africans, this ruling is an encouragement to immigrants and foreigners to illegally come to South African with the sole intention to give their children South African citizenship.

The reasoning behind the ruling of the court could be that the children born to foreign parents are innocent of what ever crimes their parents have committed. Also that as far as those children are still In South African they are South African citizens and ought to be provided for by South Africa.

See how happy these children are knowing that they now have hope and provision from south Africa.
