Arizona state politicians will introduce model legislation this week to encourage states to prevent children of illegal immigrants from being granted citizenship under the 14th Amendment.

Lawmakers in at least 14 states have said they are committed to passing the legislation targeting birthright citizenship. Arizona's anti-illegal-immigrant bill, SB-1070, was also based on model legislation that could be easily copied by states, and at least seven states are likely to pass bills similar to the first Arizona immigration overhaul this year, according to one analysis by an immigrants rights group.

Arizona state Senator Russell Pearce will unveil the bill Jan. 5 in Washington, D.C., the Arizona Capital Times reports. The paper says lawmakers in Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah have said they want to introduce similar legislation this year. . . .

So many states believe in a, “living, breathing,” Constitution that changes every week.

The problem is that everyone can clearly see that we no longer have even a ghost of an excuse to pretend that we can somehow “afford” to sustain a huge illegal population when so many citizens are suffering.

Politicians know which way the wind is blowing and they will cater to it for the right reasons or the wrong reasons, but they will make it happen.

I am U.S. military stationed in Bahrain. We are forced to get Bahraini immigration papers (CPR Cards). You can't do a lot of things without those papers. You can't drive a car or have a cell phone, etc. This is a backward a__ country where everyone is married to their cousin and these people get it right when it comes to immigration. They know that the dirt poor countries will not control their own problems if they are allowed to export their underclass to productive countries. You absolutely cannot get citizenship in this country if you are not born to citizens.
