It Is Time To Have a Debate on Birthright Citizenship

The recent national debate about the impact of illegal immigration on America is needed and welcomed.

Each year, 10 percent of all births or almost 400,000 children born are to those who are unlawfully in the United States. Given the more than 11 million illegal immigrants in the country today, this number is likely to continue.

These children automatically receive many of the same rights and privileges as United States citizens despite their parents’ illegal status. Birthright citizenship bestows on these individuals billions of dollars in federal benefits each year in the form of Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare, refundable tax credits, nutrition and housing assistance, and eventually work authorization. Of course, taxpayers foot the bill.

Birthright citizenship also rewards illegal immigrant parents. It all but guarantees that they will never be deported. And the parents indirectly reap the government benefits going to...

  2. Well, if our border is secure we wouldn't have to worry about birthright citizenship. Just because the child is a citizen does not mean the parents need to stay but at 18 years of age the child would need to decide who's citizenship to keep/declare.

  3. The lies of the Congressional Research Service, which Congress hides behind, are actually published in the Library of Congress. At the Library of Congress site is a CRS paper "Analyzing the 14th Amendment". In that article is an explicit lie. It is a quote from one of the writers of the 14th Amendment ( Senator Howard) taken from the Congressional Globe which is edited to completely convey a different meaning from what is actually there. I guess the CRS never expected someone to search the quote. Here it is:
    http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CDOC-108sdoc17/pdf/C...

    CRS version (footnote 4, pg. 1672):

    "“(4) The sponsor of the language said: ‘‘This amendment which I have offered is simply declaratory of what I regard as the law of the land already, that every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is . . . a citizen of the United States.’’ Id. at 2890.”

    This is what it really says on page 2890 of the Congressional Globe:

    "“The sponsor of the language said: ‘‘This amendment which I have offered is simply declaratory of what I regard as the law of the land already, that every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by natural law and national law, a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the US who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of embassadors or ministers accredited to the United States, but will include every other class of persons.” Id., @ 2890

    The CRS substituted "is by natural law and national law" with "...". Can it be any more plain? The CRS is a propaganda outfit, which LIES, and Congress hides behind. There are many more lies within that "analysis" of the 14th Amendment, and that quote alone proves that the writers of the 14th Amendment considered natural law to be the Original Common Law of the US, which of course the CRS wanted to avoid like the plague, because natural law defines natural born Citizen, as one born in a country of parents who are citizens-- which means Obama is not eligible,, and natural law forbids citizenship to the children of non legal resident aliens. It is all there in black and white.
