“At some point, people will either stop going overseas or renounce their U.S. citizenship – which has been a growing trend in the last few years.”
This is an interesting article in a magazine called biz.hk; a monthly journal offering business news and special features to the American and international community in Hong Kong. Michael DeSombre, Worldwide President of Republicans Overseas and resident of Hong Kong for 17 year, explains some of the issues Americans abroad are facing as well as the concerns about the constitutionality of the law. In the U.S., there is a two-pronged approach to dismantle it; firstly, the legal challenged led by Jim Bopp and a commitment by the Republicans to deal with it in the legislature. Mr. DeSombre does emphasize this should be a bi-partisan issue; “We truly believe supporting the effort to make a change is good for everybody.”
