No, seriously, they totally do! Don’t believe me? Just look at the latest and greatest non-binding bipartisan resolution from Capitol Hill, brought to you by Senators Al Franken & Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Ron Johnson (R-WI), and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI):
A resolution expressing the regret of the Senate for the passage of section 3 of the Expatriation Act of 1907 (34 Stat. 1228) that revoked the United States citizenship of women who married foreign nationals.
The Expatriation Act of 1907 was not completely repealed until 1940, meaning it took the U.S. government 33 years to fix the problem they created, and 74 years after that to admit that it was a dumb idea in the first place. Hope you aren’t planning to hold your breath for Washington to repeal FATCA and apologise for all the modern-day national origin discrimination which it’s causing.
