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."

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.
Leave them where they fell...dogs and buzzards have to eat.
Heh heh heh. A great final outcome for those who engage in treason. Dog food.
Good piece. At least al-Awlaki is now a good anchor baby.
Lucky Bush wasn’t still President or the Dems would be calling for Impeachment.
Just think, had he stayed and become president, he could then have gained entry to the White House and blown it up.
Anchor Babies with Bombs
Did you notice that Biden left the reservation yesterday on Bush bashing?
I wonder if he’s chained in some dungeon being reprogrammed today?
I believe the reports are that his mother was an American citizen. That would mean he wasn’t an anchor baby.
Thanks for the info.
this will not include persons...born..foreigners.
Seems clear to me. The 14th had no intention of making Anwar a citizen by birth.
Does this leave open the possibility it wasn’t even him?
Why aren’t we eliminating the anchor baby provision in the Constitution. It was put in only to establish citizenship for the families of slaves. It serves no uselful purpose and has not for the past 150+ years. It is time for it to be stricken from the Constitution.
“Anchor Babies with Bombs”
Sounds like a good action movie!
Killing people who are at war with the US is not murder.
The 14th amendment doesn't give automatic citizenship.
“Just because he was born in an oven dont make him a biscuit.”
It did not make him a biscuit but he is toast now.
Or a Pampers commercial. :>)
I’m very skeptical of our government these days. I guess if he doesn’t show up anywhere in the next six months or so, I’ll figure that they probably got him.
