"Change U.S. law on anchor babies"

Al Knight of the Denver Post's editorial staff says:
A measure pending in Congress would change the Constitution to deny citizenship rights to babies born to illegal immigrants. The proposed amendment is currently given little or no chance of passage but it certainly helps to focus attention on the nature of the problem...

The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides that "all persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the United States."

At the time the amendment was approved, the author of the clause, Sen. Jacob M. Howard, said the phrase relating to jurisdiction meant, "This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners...."

In subsequent years, the courts invalidated the assurances of Howard; at this stage, an amendment to the Constitution seems the only means available to change the law...

[...Ireland changed their law, and we can too...]


The welfare, educational, medical and other bureaucracies grow enormously more quickly when foreign criminals get to drop their children off on our welfare system. Denial of birthright citizenship for the children of illegal aliens would be a great moral advance, in that it would block the increase in the aggression on the net taxpayer which is currently growing from that source.

These idiots don't know the extent of the beaurocracy they are asking for

I wasn't aware that Ireland successfully managed to amend their federal policies regarding this matter. Alex Brunk was recently in that country; I should ask him about this issue... Though for now, we're going to be focused on the CRNC national convention, which starts this morning.

I have been a supporter of this proposed constitutional amendment, and I think that the national Republican Party platform, even as late as 2000 (after it was bastardized in Philly) may have expressed support for such a measure. I don't know if the national platform currently has that plank point; if it continues to drift left so much, we...

In Ireland it was a simple matter of a referendum put to the people that ended birthright citizenship for children of non-citizens. In the US the globalist elites who rule us will fight such a change tooth-and -nail. Getting a constitutional amendment through Congress would only be possible in the context of huge mass rallies in DC that would scare the hell out of the bought-and-paid-for legislators.

It ought to go further than that -- further than just denying citizenship to the children of illegals. For example, saying that at least one parent must be a citizen.
