AUSTIN (January 24, 2012) The grassroots organization Patriots for Self-Deportation, formed last year in response to legislative inaction on the issue of birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants (also known as the “anchor baby” problem), announced today the launch of their website, The group describes as a resource for patriotic Americans who wish to set an example of responsible citizenship by proving their own rights to remain in this great nation.

The group hopes the website and issue benefits from Republican candidate Mitt Romney's endorsement of self-deportation as a solution to the problem of illegal immigration, according to spokesman Stephen Winters.

"A surprising number of authentic patriots have found in their own genealogical searches that one or more of their ancestors came here or stayed here illegally, and yet continued to make a living in this country and have children who in turn became instant citizens," said Winters. "Some patriots, faced with this moral dilemma, have decided to set an example for others. Knowing that their own presence in this country is not on moral solid ground, they have decided to demonstrate the highest level of civic dedication and sacrifice, and engage in self-deportation."

In order to address the surprisingly large number of such cases, Patriots for Self-Deportation launched to support, inform, and assist those undertaking or considering a similar move. At, patriots can answer for themselves the following questions:

  1. How can I know if ancestors of mine came here legally?
  2. If I suspect that an ancestor should never have received citizenship, am I morally obliged to do something about it?
  3. What support is available if I decide to self-deport?
  4. If several of my ancestors came over illegally, how do I decide which country of origin to return to?
  5. How do I go about self-deportation?
