Birthright Citizenship Has to Go—no Matter What the Wall Street Journal Says

Those who say illegal immigration can only be solved by amnesty do not wish America well

In the August 21st Wall Street Journal, the lead editorial rips the idea of ending “birthright citizenship,” which Donald Trump put forth in his immigration policy paper. The editorial debunks the idea held by many experts that the 14thAmendment has been misinterpreted, allowing enormous numbers of illegal aliens to give birth on our shores to instant citizens. This allows a baby thus born to be an anchor for the rest of the family to remain.

 

It also allowed the drug lord, el Chapo to dispatch a pregnant wife northward to deposit her spawn on American soil, to eventually establish an American branch of his drug empire. Thus do the forces of evil deal with a weak, misguided nation. Scissors-32x32.png

Not your father's 14th Amendment

By Jon N. Hall

On August 19, two excellent, must-read articles ran on the Net that are sorely needed correctives to a common misunderstanding about the 14th Amendment. Unfortunately, this mistake is made even by certain legal professionals who should know better.

 

Human Events ran “Fox News Anchored in Stupidity on 14th Amendment” by Ann Coulter. Ms Coulter explains the original intent, history, and case law surrounding so-called “birthright citizenship.” Coulter makes a compelling case that the children born to illegal aliens on American soil were never intended to be granted automatic citizenship by the 1868 amendment:

 

The anchor baby scam was invented 30 years ago by a liberal zealot, Justice William Brennan, who slipped a footnote into a 1982 Supreme Court opinion announcing that the kids born to illegals on U.S. soil are citizens. Fox News is treating Brennan’s crayon scratchings on the Constitution as part of our precious national heritage.Scissors-32x32.png
