Ending birthright citizenship = end to anchor babies

The Washington Examiner reports Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call to end birthright citizenship in the United States “could revive a similar proposal in Congress that has never gained traction despite past support from top leaders.” The article cites Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, (watch him in linked video) and House Speaker John Boehner, (R-OH), who is all over the map on any given subject on any given day. We can count on them for nothing.

Birthright Citizenship is the automatic granting of citizenship to children born to non-citizens within a nation’s borders or territories. The United States and Canada are now the only developed nations in the world to still offer Birthright Citizenship to tourists and illegal aliens. Those children are known as anchor babies since the birth of one on American soil facilitates “chain migration” or the ability of that infant in diapers, usually supplied by your tax dollars, to act as the conduit to bring in the rest of the extended family. It is a preposterous misinterpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment, which rightly granted citizenship to American-born children of African-born slaves freed after the Civil War.

In recent years the practice has been repealed by the nations of Australia (2007), New Zealand (2005), Ireland (2005), France (1993), India (1987), Malta (1989), UK (1983), and Portugal (1981).

The list “Developed Nations” that disallow the practice can be seen  on NumbersUSA along with the list of “Other Nations” that join in refusing to accept the this surefire means of destroying the unifying heritage of a country. The NumbersUSA website also lists the 2016 presidential candidates who support and oppose ending birthright citizenship. Although the post was just updated there are missing candidates.

Seeing Red AZ has written about the issue and its many incarnations as far back as 2010 with the post Anchor babies and “birth tourism” making the news. and Birth tourism” alive and well in 2012.

Americans are increasingly being told what words they can use to describe the worsening situation. “Illegal alien” is an unkind description of those who thumb their noses at our laws while invading our sovereign nation. By 2011, the New York Times explained the term “anchor baby” has been redefined as a slur.

In 2013, we wrote the amnesty supporting Arizona Republic speaks illegalese, followed by Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press, in which we reported that the AP Stylebook was ditching the term “illegal immigrant” as politically incorrect.

America is not yet the totalitarian regime described in George Orwell’s book, 1984. Redefining language is a calculated tool of the left. Don’t fall in line.

    The culprit is actually much deeper than Congressional leadership. Here in Arizona where the problem is massive, our own GOP congressmen actually tried to feed us more bogus platitudes about illegals when they jointly wrote this op-ed for the pro-illegal Arizona Republic newspaper. Yet the essentially run unopposed, because they are entrenched and recipients of big bucks provided by the cheap illegal labor supporting Chamber of Commerce lobbyists.

    Additionally, we have the practiced liars John McCain and Jeff Flake selling us out in the senate.

  2. Vince says:

    We are also routinely lied to about the number of illegals in the USA. The same 10 to 11 million (as if that is insignificant), has been spoon fed to us for at least a decade by their champions.
    Immigration Counters has long been regarded as presenting a more accurate assessment.

  3. Maggie says:

    Donald Trump is forcing the other candidates to address the issue of illegals. It has previously been swept under the rug and now it’s the elephant in the room. This issue alone should doom Jeb Bush’s campaign. He and Marco Rubio see no problemo with the flood of illegals.

  4. Frankly Speaking says:

    Another fine post! This insanity will only end when we stop providing incentives and speak the truth. Words absolutely DO matter. Currently, the loudest voices seem to be in favor of the continued invasion. Shamefully, the LDS and Catholic Churches are leading the pack, since their very existence relies on filled churches and collection plates. Grateful uneducated and impoverished illegals are their salvation.

    Last night Mark Levin (on Sean Hannity’s show) spelled out how the 14th Amendment isn’t meant for any foreigner who drops a baby on American soil. It was meant for American slaves as we all know – but it’s been bastardized by opportunists and needs to stop. The U.S. and Canada are the only two first world countries who abide by this (as I confirmed above in the SRAZ post). Other countries have dropped the idea of anchor babies. It’s time we do too.

    Donald Trump was pretty impressive yesterday in New Hampshire putting down the idea that the term ‘anchor babies’ isn’t politically correct. He said it like we all see it – ridiculous to call it anything else.

    I’ve seen times where I’ve thought we could make some inroads into stopping illegal immigration – and it didn’t happen. We should take advantage of this new opportunity with Trump out there saying it like it is. I don’t know how many more chances we’ll have to go against the Chamber of Commerce, Big Busine$$ and the greedy politicians in Washington.

      That was a great clip! Yet the establishment press won’t let it go, I think that Krauthammer has another warning one in Investors Business Daily warning R’s from using this very messy subject.

    10 States and Washington, D.C., Issue Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Immigrants


    Four million illegals driving “legally.” Do 4,000,000 understand English and the rules of the road?

    Illegal immigrants are undocumented, which raises the specter of fraud; some holders might have used false identities, addresses, or documents to obtain their licenses.

    It’s just getting worse. The politicians will keep on coming…..

    SO….in listening to Michael Medved…perhaps he needs to listen to Mark Levin. Mr. Medved instead sounds like he’s been listening to kfyi…

    …who’s line-up doesn’t include Mr. Levin…go figure.

    • barries1 says:

      I tuned Medved out a while ago when he criticized Cruz daily saying he is damaging the Republican brand and will make it difficult to take the Senate doing crazy things like defund Ocare. When flipping, he says the same of Trump.

      I never hear him say that Boehner & McConnell are damaging the R brand when they fund Ocare, cromnibus, debt ceiling increases, amnesty, TPP & anything else on Obama;s bucket list!

    taking away citizenship is a double edge sword what if mrs clinton and obama says ok you want to get rid of the 14th amendment then we will take away citizenship from republicans. be careful what you wish for!

  9. StetsonXXX says:

    Those anchor babies are worth more than their weight in gold. Each one counts as nearly $100,000 in cold, hard cash!!

    Kelli Ward tweeted that she has come in ahead of McCain in a poll today:

    I hope she takes a clear stand against anchor babies.
