    in Saudi Arabia. Saudi citizenship only applies if the father is Saudi or the father of a child is unknown and the mother is Saudi(an exceedingly rare case). A child born of Saudi mother and a non-Saudi father must apply for citizenship later.

    It creates a system of second class "permanent residents" that are not entitled to many benefits Saudi citizens are. They cannot use the same hospitals, are not entitled to the same health benefits or the same wages, and have many more restrictions on their free travel.

    It's nice that Rep. King thinks that is a system we should emulate.
