Chapter Five analyzes the 2004 Citizenship Referendum, which ended the practice of automatically granting citizenship to any child born in Ireland. The Referendum was intended to stop immigration into Ireland by pregnant non-citizen women. But it also radically transformed the meaning of citizenship for Irish people. Moreover, it revealed the temporal—rather than spatial—dimensions of immigration control, which tries to create an exclusionary national future by managing heterosexual reproduction.
