Skip to comments.United States Assassinates Anwar the Anchor Baby

The most important thing to know about the "death by drone" of Anwar al-Awlaki is that this is really about citizenship and anchor babies. Anwar, America's enemy, is a US citizen by virtue of his Yemeni dad pursuing higher education in the US at the time of Anwar's birth. Anwar was born in New Mexico in April of 1971. That made him a US citizen.
It doesn't matter that he returned to Yemen and that his parents had no intention of ever becoming US citizens while they lived here. What matters is the address of the hospital in which little Anwar screamed his first breath of defiance.
The truly bizarre is yet to follow. We also trained him. He returned to the US for both undergrad and graduate degrees: civil engineering and education, respectively. Later pursuit of a PhD in human resource development at George Washington University fell short.
This "U.S. Citizen" then set about trying to destroy his so-called "home of birth."
What's more, Awlaki's kids and wife are forever tied to the US. His five children, at least some of whom had to have been born in the US before he departed in 2002, finally arrived in Yemen in 2004 with their parents. Those born in the US while he attended school are doubly US citizens since their dad was a citizen.
As one recent discussion put it: "Each of these babies becomes an anchor who retards deportation of unlawfully present parentsand who eventually will be an anchor for entire families and villages as chain migration leads to the immigration of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins." Bloomberg BusinessWeek
The death of Anwar al-Awlaki is not at all about getting "America's enemy." It really is a discussion about "anchor baby citizenship."
Anchor babies with bombs.
Meanwhile "The Obama administration says attempts to change the U.S. constitutional amendment that grants automatic citizenship to people born in the United States are just wrong." http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/dcnow/2010/08/obama-administration-slams-attacks-on-birthright-citizenship.html
No one wants to "change the 14th Amendment, Mr President. They simply want folks to acknowledge that anti-American terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki's parents weren't "subjects" of the United States. They were Yemenis. Little Anwar wasn't a subject of the US either.
On the contrary, he was a hater and an enemy.

Quoting IowaHawk on Twitter:
“When Rick Perry executes a US citizen, he should do what Barack Obama does: use Hellfire missiles”
IowaHawk is brilliant.
I never considered Awlaki more than a nuisance. I still don’t think so, despite the 24 hours news wanting to turn him into weekend long fodder to fill their need for endless programming.
All told, he’s not very interesting except for the anchor baby angle.
“he was...an enemy.”
End of discussion.
Fine! Now, bring me the head of Ayman Al Zawahiri.
I want to lace up my U.S. boots and play soccer with it.
FNC said this morning that all five of the terrorists were “burned beyond recognition”. Well, they didn’t suffer. LOL!
Looks like our military "deported" Anwar al-Awlaki to a much warmer climate.
The the US credit, at least Zawahiri is not a US citizen. Although, I’m sure Obama would want to make him one.
I wonder if all 5 were also anchor babies?
Anyone, even an American citizen, unfortunate enough to want to call themselves “Al Queda” - can be killed by the US military - and according to the Geneva convention - because they do not wear a uniform - they can be killed anytime anyplace and without any need to offer them a chance to surrender.
If you don't want these rules of engagement to apply, don't call yourself “Al Queda” and don't go to war not wearing a uniform.
According to the Joint Resolution of Sep 19, 2001, anyone aiding, abetting, giving comfort is fair game for a quick trip to the afterlife.
That includes anchor babies.
End of discussion.. I agree WK.
This case exemplifies why turning the babies of foreigners on visas into US citizens is irrational.
Just because he was born in an oven don’t make him a biscuit.
That depends on whether they were 'flash fried' or 'slow roasted'.
That is the entire argument in a nutshell. The 14th Amendment was intended to specifically protect the rights to citizenship of Americans who were born into slavery. Subsequent, sane rulings by SCOTUS and legislation specifically excluded three categories:
At one time, these meanings were perfectly clear. They still should be if the libtard termites in our court and legal system were not hell-bent on making them meaningless.
If a person here legally on a tourist visa gives birth to a child, the standard procedure is to ask them to list the child on the parent's passport or visitor's documents as a logical step to enable them to exit the country and obtain citizenship in their home country when the time comes.
It logically follows that a person here illegally and univited cannot have superior rights to a visitor here legally, but that isn't good enough for the libtards.
Birthright citizenship is not nor was it ever intended to be a constitutional right for anyone except those born to U.S. nationals subject to our jurisdiction or slaves freed as a result of the 13th amendment.
If your parents are not here legally as in category #3, then they should be considered to be in category #2. That's all.
A free burial at sea will cool them off. Smoke on the water, (Dah...dah...daaaah...)
Alwaki was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
When he came back to the US in 91, he should have stayed. He could have become president, at least according to a number of people here, Rush and Mark Levin.
I’m sure thats what the authors of the Constitution had in mind, but what do I know. The first Yemeni-American President. How historic. Im sure he would have made a fine President.
Maybe his American citizen kids will move back to the US and run for President.
