Arizona Immigration Billīs Author Now Wants to End Citizenship by Birthright
Short News ^ | 5/22/10 | staff

Arizona State Sen. Russell Pearce, the author of the controversial state immigration bill, told his constituents that he wants to invalidate the U.S. citizenship of children who were born to illegal immigrants.

He also sent constituents an e-mail he later said he disagrees with. "If we are going to have an effect on the anchor baby racket, we need to target the mother," it said. Other political leaders have called for an end to birthright citizenship.

Rep. Duncan Hunter of California told a tea party rally he´d support deporting the children of illegal aliens despite their birthright citizenship.

The idea that the constitution allows for these anchor babies to be citizens is preposterous. Wipe this nonsense away, ASAP!

Amen! This provision should have been in the original bill.

Anchor babies are the main reason for the rampant lawbreaking we have.

I have spoken to J.D. Hayworth about this a few years ago. He feels the same way.

Pregnant Mexican women about to give birth, putting their lives and their babies lives at risk, huddled by the border, is an insult to intelligent people everywhere. Stop this madness. NO MORE ANCHOR BABIES!!!

I, too, wish that the children of illegal aliens born in the U.S.A. would have the nationality(ies) of their parents. But the laws must be changed to make that possible. Thankfully, they’re not eligible to become President.

Let me explain. All people born in the U.S. are considered native born citizens. (Only those native born whose parents are U.S. citizens can be considered Natural Born Citizens. NBC is NOT a form of citizenship, merely a circumstance of birth required for eligibility to become President per Article 12 of the U.S. Constitution.)

Please note the capitalized quote in the following.

United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898):

Wong Kim Ark was the son of two resident Chinese aliens who claimed U.S. Citizenship. He was vindicated by the Supreme Court on the basis of the 14th Amendment. In this case Justice Gray gave the opinion of the court. On p. 168-9 of the record, he cites approvingly the decision in Minor vs. Happersett: “At common law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children, BORN IN A COUNTRY OF PARENTS WHO WERE ITS CITIZENS, BECAME THEMSELVES, UPON THEIR BIRTH CITIZENS ALSO. THESE WERE NATIVES, OR NATURAL-BORN CITIZENS, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.

On the basis of the 14th Amendment the majority opinion coined a new definition for “native citizen”, as anyone who was born in the U.S.A. under the jurisdiction of the United States. The Court thus extended citizenship to all born in the country (excepting those born of ambassadors and foreign armies etc.) but it DID NOT extend the meaning of the term “natural born citizen” to those whose parents were not citizens at the time of the child’s birth.

So, any anchor baby born here of illegal aliens is a native born citizen but will never be eligible to become President.

No. The courts eff’ed up. Kids of ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE NOT CITIZENS AND WE MUST STOP PRETENDING THEY ARE.

BRAVO, is is way past time to do this.

Someone posted the statistics of the number of babies born here of illegal mothers and it was eyeopening.

Won’t happen without a constitutioonal ammendment. And we will never have the votes...

14th Amendment states...
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

Not much we can do about this. To change that language it would require a supermajority not just in congress but you would need 2/3rds of the states to pass it.

Illegal aliens are not subject to our jurisdiction. Only in the sense we get to deport them. Your (and the libtards on the courts) interpretation is nonsensical fallacy.

Get rid of it, and adopt Mexico’s illegal immigrant laws verbatum if need be.

The 14th amendment was in response to a supreme court decision (Dread Scot) and originally applied to slaves and their children. It should never be applied to the children of illegals. I agree, it's time for it to go.
