- States Must Fight Legal
Fiction Called 'Anchor Babies'
- "If anyone's going to be deported,
it's going to be you! ... Get out! We are the future. You're old and tired.
Go on. We have beaten you leave like beaten rats. You old white people,
it is your duty to die. Right now, we're already controlling those elections,
whether it's by violence or nonviolence. Through love of having children
we're going to take over." Augustin Cebada, information minister of
Brown Berets, militant para-military soldiers of Aztlan shouting at U.S.
citizens at an Independence Day rally in Los Angeles.
- It is astounding how many elected public officials support
illegal aliens who sneak into our house like criminals in the night, stealing
jobs that belong to Americans and bankrupting cities and hospitals for
"freebies" they have no right to receive, backed up by federal
judges who should have been removed from the federal bench decades ago.
In April 2008, the very popular, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, prostituted
himself during a speech for votes at an event sponsored by the Latino Leadership
Alliance of New Jersey by assuring his audience illegal aliens were not
really here illegally, but were simply "undocumented."
- The 'unofficial' number of unemployed Americans is close
to 25 MILLION. Those "undocumented" criminals Gov. Christie refers
to are illegally holding 11.5 MILLION jobs that belong to Americans and
naturalized citizens. Shame on you, Gov. Christie for thumbing your nose
at our federal immigration laws and encouraging even more criminals to
break into our country. Roll out the welcome mat. Unemployment in New Jersey
is holding at a steady 9.3%. Gov. Christie apparently doesn't care if jobs
go to illegal aliens instead of legal citizens in his state. After all,
they're simply "undocumented". Well, what can one expect from
someone who believes the hoax called 'global warming'? Yes, Christie is
on the record saying 'climate change' (the repackaged global warming baloney)
is caused by human activity.
- Gov. Rick Perry here in Texas is also pro illegals despite
his carefully crafted stump speeches. Almost six years ago, Perry signed
a bill into law to steal from the taxpayers of Texas to give tuition breaks
to illegal aliens attending state universities. "Students" who
have no right to even be on U.S. soil, much less take classroom seats in
universities. Voters beware: Rick Perry is not who you think he is; Perry's
actions speak louder than his campaign rhetoric.
- What exactly is this legal fiction called an 'anchor
baby'? The theory is that a child born on U.S. soil of an illegal alien,
regardless of country of origin, automatically becomes a U.S. citizen.
- Nothing could be further from the truth.
- Those favoring illegal aliens sneaking into our country
use the Fourteenth Amendment as justification for babies born on U.S. soil
by mothers who have no legal right to be in our country. They are wrong.
- Amendment XIV - U.S. Constitution
- Section 1. "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. No state shall
make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities
of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person
of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to
any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
- "Anchor babies" is simply a bastardization
of the Fourteenth Amendment. Illegal means illegal. If the parent(s) have
no legal right to be on US soil, their off spring are also illegal and
must be deported if there is going to be any respect for our laws. I'm
sorry for children of illegals, but they should blame their parents for
sneaking across our borders, making them criminals in the eyes of the law.
- The single largest number of illegal aliens (not "immigrants")
sneaking across the border are from Mexico. What does their Constitution
say - and thank you to Mothers Against Illegal Amnesty for bringing this
to light last year:
- Mexican Constitution - Chapter II
- Article 30. Mexican nationality is acquired by birth
or by naturalization:
- A. Mexicans by birth are:
- I. Those born in the territory of the Republic, regardless
of the nationality of their parents:
- II. Those born in a foreign country of Mexican parents;
of a Mexican father and a foreign mother; or of a Mexican mother and an
- Quoting one of the experts on the destruction of the
illegal invasion and 'anchor babies', Frosty Wooldridge, wrote in one of
his columns, January 6, 2011:
- "April 4, 1997, President Sedillo of Mexico stated
that "We will not tolerate foreign forces dictating and enacting laws
on Mexicans. Our contention is that we are not enacting or dictating any
laws on the Mexican illegal alien children born by illegal alien females
in the US territory. Further, he states that "he was going to use
all diplomatic and legal forces at his disposal to protect Mexicans living
in the United States."
- What Sedillo was saying is legally correct:
- Illegal aliens who smuggle themselves across our borders
from Mexico are Mexican citizens and so are their off spring according
to their Constitution, which is why he vows to protect "Mexicans living
in the United States." All 'anchor babies' whose mother is a Mexican
citizen should be stripped of US citizenship because legally the child
never had the legal right to acquire such status.
- Consider these words from Edward J. Erler, Professor
of Political Science, California State University, San Bernardino, in his
column (I hope you take the time to read all of it): Birthright Citizenship
and Dual Citizenship: Harbingers of Administrative Tyranny
- "In sum, this legacy of feudalism-which we today
call birthright citizenship-was decisively rejected as the ground of American
citizenship by the Fourteenth Amendment and the Expatriation Act of 1868.
It is absurd, then, to believe that the Fourteenth Amendment confers the
boon of American citizenship on the children of illegal aliens. Nor does
the denial of birthright citizenship visit the sins of the parents on the
children, as is often claimed, since the children of illegal aliens born
in the U.S. are not being denied anything to which they have a right. Their
allegiance should follow that of their parents during their minority. Furthermore,
it is 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."
- He further points out: "But in any case, to say
that children of legal aliens are entitled to citizenship is one thing;
after all, their parents are in the country with the permission of the
U.S. It is entirely different with illegal aliens, who are here without
permission. Thus repeal of the current policy of birthright citizenship
for the children of illegal aliens would not require a constitutional amendment."
- Prof. Erler hit it out of the ball park: Children born
on US soil of an illegal alien parent (or two parents) regardless of country
of origin have no "right" to U.S. citizenship.
- 'Anchor Baby' Constitutional Amendment to Face Scrutiny
in Congress - December 26, 2010 (FOX News)
- "In a matter of weeks, Congress will go from trying
to help young, illegal immigrants become legal to debating whether children
born to parents who are in the country illegally should continue to enjoy
automatic U.S. citizenship. Such a hardened approach -- and the rhetoric
certain to accompany it -- should resonate with the GOP faithful who helped
swing the House in Republicans' favor. But it also could further hurt the
GOP in its endeavor to grab a large enough share of the growing Latino
vote to win the White House and the Senate majority in 2012. Legislation
to test interpretations of the 14th Amendment as granting citizenship to
the children of illegal immigrants will emerge early next session."
- There is a rancid bill in Congress right now that should
be rejected: H.R.140 - Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011. Why? Because
it includes citizenship for illegal aliens who serve in our military. The
Department of Defense is so hard up for IED fodder for the on-going illegal
invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, they - with the blessing
of the Outlaw Congress - have allowed illegal aliens to enlist. Currently
there are about 29,000 illegal aliens serving in our military who should
have been deported the minute their legal status was determined. Rep. Steve
King's bill rewards violating our immigration laws. That is not a solution,
it's a magnet for more illegals to invade this country and enlist. The
military provides a lot of perks paid for by you and me. I'm sick of being
fleeced to reward criminal behavior.
- Forget about pandering to the "Latino vote."
I am so sick of racist politics shoved down our throats by minorities.
This isn't about anyone's race. It's about our laws and the financial destruction
heaped on this country as a result of allowing nearly 25 MILLION illegals
into this country. Pile on the number of children birthed by illegal female
aliens and the numbers become staggering. According to a 2010 study released
by the Pew Hispanic Center, 79% of the 5.1 million children of criminals
(illegal aliens) were born in the U.S. That means just over 4 million babies
have been given U.S. citizenship when they should have been deported immediately
with the mother. Since their mother had no right to be on U.S. soil, the
baby has no "right" to U.S. citizenship.
- That might sound hard nosed, but the carnage caused by
illegals since Ronald Reagan opened the door to this massive invasion back
in 1986 would fill a hundred newspapers. The financial destruction to the
states of the Union heaped on the backs of hard working Americans and those
who came to America legally and went through the process, runs into the
hundreds of billions of dollars -- every year. Those 4 million illegal
alien babies are recipients of your paycheck in the form of welfare and
stealing the limited resources for education in the states.
- Last year alone, the cost to taxpayers of LA County was
whopping $600 MILLION dollars in welfare for children of illegal aliens.
I guess it doesn't bother the people there getting fleeced in taxes to
pay for all that welfare because they continue to elect governors who refuse
to lock down the border and sympathizers of the invasion across the southern
border of California to their legislature. Remember the quote at the top
of this column.
- The Republicans controlled Congress from January 1995
- December 2007. For eight of those years, there was a Republican president,
Bush, Jr. This mess regarding 'anchor babies' should have been taken care
of once and for all: Regardless of country of origin, if you drop a baby
on U.S. soil and you are an illegal alien, your baby does not automatically
become a U.S. citizen. Both will be deported. The easiest way to detect
this is from hospitals reporting the legal status of a woman giving birth.
Oh, can you hear the screeching already from the American Communist Lawyers
Union (ACLU), La Raza and other pro illegal, anti-American groups that
illegals have rights!
- No, they don't and the ACLU, LaRaza and other militant
anti-American groups can yell and jump up and down all they want. Either
we get serious about deporting illegals or continue to suffer even more
destruction to our country. Lawlessness breeds lawlessness. The U.S. State
Department and the Department of Homeland Security support giving U.S.
citizenship to illegal babies. Not surprising considering who heads up
both of those cabinets.
- It's long past time the states of the Union stood up
to the General Government on this issue. The states of the Union birthed
the Constitution which created the U.S. Congress. They still hold the power.
- As Prof. Erler stated above, there is no need for Congress
to pass a constitutional amendment to deal with the issue of the 'anchor
baby' scam. Art. IV, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution says: "The
United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican
form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and
on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature
cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
- That won't happen unless the people of each state make
this a major issue with their state legislature. That means all of us put
the heat on our state reps and senators. It doesn't matter if your state
legislature is out of session, send that snail mail letter and remind them
next year is an election year. It's time to replace gutless legislators
with real men and women who have the backbone to stand up to Washington,
DC., the ACLU and America hating groups like LaRaza.Last year Arizona's
state legislature tried to pass a bill dealing with this issue; it didn't
pass. Many, including myself, were opposed to the language in the bill
as it would have changed the language of the Fourteenth Amendment and that
can only be done by a constitutional amendment. However, the states can
write legislation that succinctly spells out the myth of 'anchor babies'
being protected by the Fourteenth Amendment and their right to turn the
mother over to ICE to be deported right along with the baby.
