Anchor Babies As A Weapon

Denying citizenship for illegal immigrants' children is a bad idea

Go back, however, and read the transcripts of the 1866 debate in the Senate and you find that both those for and against the amendment readily acknowledged its application to illegal immigrants. A Pennsylvania senator, for example, objected to granting citizenship to the children of aliens who regularly commit "trespass" within the United States. The concern then was with babies of gypsy or Chinese parents.

But Congress and the ratifying states opted instead to uphold a founding principle of the republic that was fundamental to the peaceful building of a multiethnic immigrant nation, however imperfectly. In a world plagued by bloody ethnic conflicts, that concern remains valid.

The WaPo writer goes on to say that it is not a immigration strategy for women to purposely have their babies in the US. Not true. Foreigners have used anchor babies as well as marriage and other techniques to gain entrance to the US and illegal alien entrance and anchor babies are proliferating. Groups such as La Raza and MECHa openly talk of it to build their population for power to retake the southwestern portion of the US. This population is being used as a weapon.

It is time to deny them automatic citizenship and secure our borders.

The Campaigner Sets His Sights On Reality?

Now that the Obama lecture series is over at the G-20 and it appears too wet for quality golf we get this.

Obama Calling "Bluff" Of Those Complaining About "Deficits And Debt"

People should learn that lesson about me because next year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, I hope some of these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step-up because I'm calling their bluff. We'll see how much of that, how much of the political arguments that they're making right now are real and how much of it was just politics."

Really, a politician that obviously has one great quality, politics, is warning us about playing politics. His biggest warning is that he is calling their bluff as he stares at a political disbanding of his gang?

Plug the damn hole in our economy and we might start believing you.
