Pennsylvania State Representative and State Legislators for Legal Immigration (SLLI) founder Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler County), state lawmakers and Constitutional scholars from across the nation convened in Washington D.C. today to unveil historic model legislation to correct the monumental misapplication of the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. This historic press conference was held on the same day as the swearing-in of the 112th Congress; encouraging that one of the first actions should be to uphold their oath and defend the Constitution to protect the states from the illegal alien invasion.
According to the 14th Amendment, the primary requirements for U.S. citizenship are dependent on total allegiance to America, not mere physical geography, said Metcalfe. The purpose of this model legislation is to restore the original intent of the 14th Amendment, which is currently being misapplied and is encouraging illegal aliens to cross and cost American taxpayers $113 billion annually, or nearly $1,117 yearly per individual taxpayer.

If this misapplication is finally corrected, then it should be grandfathered back to the last amnesty; IOW, all children born to illegal aliens after the last amnesty was passed and went into effect should be considered citizens of their PARENTS’ country, not this one. So, all children born to illegal aliens from 1986 on are illegal aliens themselves. That alone will save all 50 states thousands of dollars in state resources.
Some say we shouldn’t punish the children for their parents’ crime but hey, life isn’t fair and they need to direct their anger at their lawbreaking parents, not at citizens of the host nation who are fed up with lawbreakers like their parents.
Finally, some meaningful pushback to the Marxists. I’m feeling better and better about being an American again.
I was goin to say “It’s the first time I’ve felt proud to be an American...” Oh wait, that was already spewed by Mooshell Obama.
Sounds like a plan has finally come together. About time.
I agree completely. There's not a single illegal adult who did not recognize the risk to their children by coming here...under the radar. They knew the risk. The American people should never be saddled with the children of illegals. As adults, have any of these children attempted to actually go the route of becoming legal? and that not by changing our laws to accomodate them? No, I would doubt so for the majority and very few if any of the minority. Rather they move to cause our nation and it's laws to "adapt" to them and that's just plane wrong.
