If you're a Jew who had to flee a Muslim country shouldn't you automatically get American citizenship?

Do you mean America is home to everyone? The British government has stateless status for people but it would be more relavent to idk.

NO THE BEST YOU CAN HOPE FOR IS LEGAL STATUS TO STAY IN THIS COUNTRY

No. Because non-Jews who half to flee countries don't automatically get American citizenship and U.S. law shouldn't treat different religions differently.
If you're a Jew, you can automatically get Israeli citizenship, if you want it.
But if you want American citizenship, you should have to follow the same rules and non-Jews who want citizenship.

No. Lots of people have to flee, that does not entitle them to a US citizenship.

Why would those circumstances lead to US citizenship?

You're describing most of my Israeli relatives over 60 (expelled from Morocco) and they'd tell you this is why Israel exists. There's no reason a nation 7,500 miles away should have anything whatsoever to do with this.

No. Even if every muslim country was unsafe for them (which they are not) Israel would be the nearest safe country. Not the US. Not any western country.

Nobody automatically gets US citizenship except a baby born to US citizens who have met US residency requirements, or those born in US. All prospective immigrants have to be approved to enter & settle in US, then meet additional requirements, including period of legal residency in the US, before they might qualify to apply for citizenship.

How does that even make sense?
