Author of Arizona Immigration Law Wants To End Birthright Citizenship
The author of Arizona's immigration law, state Sen. Russell Pearce, told constituents he wants to pass another measure to invalidate citizenship granted to the children of illegal aliens. Pearce wrote that he plans to "push for an Arizona bill that would refuse to accept or issue a birth certificate that recognizes citizenship to those born to illegal aliens, unless one parent is a citizen," in an email obtained by Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO.
Pearce also forwarded an email from another correspondent expanding on the proposal which he later told KPHO he didn't agree with. "If we are going to have an effect on the anchor baby racket, we need to target the mother. Call it sexist, but that's the way nature made it. Men don't drop anchor babies, illegal alien mothers do," the email said. Pearce did tell the CBS affiliate, however, that he didn't see anything wrong with using the term "anchor baby" to refer to natural-born U.S. citizens.
Last year, 92 Congressmen sponsored a bill that would change the 14th Amendment so that children of illegal aliens born in the United States would not be granted citizenship. The bill is still in committee. Last month, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California told a tea party rally he would support deporting children of illegal aliens, even if they are citizens.

This guy rocks. He should run for President. Awesome.
Florida RINO Repubs by contrast are cowards, fairies, mommies boys and madecons.
Do it!!! Do away with that ‘dual citizenship’ BS too!
“Every Person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”
Senator Jacob Howard,
co-author of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment, 1866.
It’s time someone else takeover as outhouse to the world. Arizonans are tired of it.
Keep it going, baby!
You have 70+% of the USA behind you!
This is a GREAT idea whose time has come!

So overdue. If they do that they’ll all leave the state which will force other states to finally come to grips with the problem.
why not just get a supreme court ruling on it.
Shhhhhhh, don't let anyone know, but Perry's gonna run for president in 2012.....don't wanna make any waves ya know.
Gotta play up to the Hispanic voter.
RINO big time this guy Perry is.
Not a new idea, but a good idea.
What are madecons?
You do not have to change the 14th Amendment to do this. All you have to do is pass a law.
The key phrase is "subject to the laws there of".
Residents of Madeco? Or would that be Madecians?
Yes! let’s go all the way. Let’s finish this now once and for all.
Go AZ ! I’ve heard there are many states behind you and may soon
enact the same law.
