- Part 1: Accelerating costs of jackpot or anchor babies
on American taxpayers
- Every year, 400,000 pregnant women enter the United States
illegally to birth their babies on American soil. Their children become
instant citizens and their mothers become instant wards of the American
taxpayer. They enjoy taxpayer paid deliveries in our hospitals, unlimited
medical health, K-12 educations, 'free' breakfasts and lunches, 'free'
English as a second language classes and assisted housing, food stamps
and social security benefits.
- In an excellent expose' by Mark Cromer, www.capsweb.org,
senior writing fellow, titled: "American Jackpot: Remaking America
by Birthright Citizenship"
- (http://tinyurl.com/ya29za3), he explains phenomenon
occurring only in the United States. No other country in the world allows
- Only one U.S. House congressman named Nathan Deal (R-GA)
has entered a bill, HR 1968 to stop this abuse of the 14th Amendment, but
his bill has languished in committee for over 10 years: another instance
where you Congress sits on its thumbs while you pay and pay.
- Unfortunately, this 'jackpot baby' syndrome has continued
for over 30 years and will continue until someone in Congress stops it.
- "Indeed, the United States today stands virtually
alone among power-house industrial democracies in granting unequivocal
birth citizenship," said Cromer. "The notion of being an instant
American if born on United States soil has been so romanticized at critical
junctures in our evolving popular culture it is now seen by many as a fundamental
characteristic of the American identity.
- "So there's no small amount of irony in the fact
that the policy of granting birthright citizenship in America has become
a core gravitational 'pull factor' that has resulted in the largest sustained
wave of mass human migration ever witnessed in the history of the nation-state;
a human tsunami that has played a critical role in the rapid erosion of
the quality of life that so many immigrants seek on these shores. It also
increasingly poses a non-consensual makeover of the culture that American
citizens had neither voice nor vote in unleashing."
- Dr. John C. Eastman, Dean of Chapman University's law
school in Orange, California, is a leading scholar in the nation on constitutional
law and has testified before Congress on the issue of birthright citizenship.
Eastman states that the framers of the 14th Amendment had no intention
of allowing another country to wage demographic warfare against the U.S.
and reshaping its culture by means of exploiting birthright citizenship.
Eastman said, "We have this common understanding of when you come
here to visit, that you are subject to our jurisdiction. You have to obey
our traffic laws.
- If you come here from England, you have to drive on the
right side of the road and not on the left side of the road. But the framers
of the 14th Amendment had in mind two different notions of 'subject to
the jurisdiction.' There was what they called territorial jurisdiction-
you have to follow the laws in the place where you are-but there was also
this more complete, or allegiance-owing jurisdiction that held that you
not only have to follow the laws, but that you owe allegiance to the sovereign."
- MASSIVE FINANCIAL AND CITIZENSHIP FRAUD
- Anchor babies, upon birth in a U.S. hospital cost from
$6,000.00 to as much as a $500,000.00 per birth depending on complications
such as Down's Syndrome, Autism, heart birth defects, etc. They also cost
an average of $9,644.00 each year for their education and thousands more
for English classes and breakfast and lunch programs.
- "Dr. Edward J. Erler, a political science professor
at Cal State San Bernardino, has spoken out against the political malaise
and the popular misconception that has blossomed around the continued awarding
of citizenship to virtually anyone born in the country," said Cromer.
"Echoing the sentiments of Eastman, Erler points out that the framers
of the 14th Amendment sought to reassure the Congress in 1868 that the
citizenship provisions did not cover-nor were they crafted with the intent
to grant-citizenship to the children of foreign nationals born in the United
- "It's difficult to fathom how those who defy American
law can derive benefits for their children by their defiance; or that any
sovereign nation would allow such a thing," Erler said. "That
it has been allowed to happen on such a massive scale and has even been
encouraged by various groups gets Terry Anderson's blood boiling. A life-long
black resident of South Los Angeles, Anderson has used his talk radio show
to decry not only the radical and rapid transformation of traditional black
neighborhoods in Los Angeles and the erosion of the black power structure
in the face of explosive immigration, but to blast the government's policy
of granting birthright citizenship to illegal immigrants, children by their
defiance; or that any sovereign nation would allow such a thing."
- Cromer said, "Ticking off a list of impacts that
illegal immigration has brought down on the black working class community-from
increased competition for jobs to overcrowded classrooms where black students
suffer under a bilingual curriculum-Anderson says illegal immigrants brazenly
celebrate "hitting the jackpot" when they have a baby in America."
- "It's wrong, it's a misinterpretation and it angers
me because that was written for my ancestors," Anderson says. "And
now it is being misused. They took an amendment made for us and turned
it around against us."
- As a teacher, I watched the destruction of American classrooms
in Denver, LA, Chicago, Detroit, Dallas and Miami. With over 50 different
languages in major city schools, millions of fatherless children and no
appreciation for or understanding of American educational standards and
culture, those anchor babies slowly and today more speedily transform America
into another country inside our own country. By 2042, Mexicans and their
offspring will become the dominant ethnic group in America according to
a recent PEW report.
- As we pour over 240,000 legal and illegal immigrants
into our country every 30 days, and allow this Jackpot Baby or Anchor Baby
phenomenon to continue, American communities, schools and cities cannot,
and will not enjoy a happy ending as our civilization balkanizes against
itself on multiple levels. If you don't think it's happening, take a three
day visit to Detroit or Los Angeles. Everyone is from some other country,
few speak English, half of them can't write their name in English and all
of them are legal Americans.
