  • Trump, GOP should keep DACA but scrap birthright citizenship

    If Trump does turn the matter over to his wobbly Republican colleagues, he must demand they cut a deal: agree to grant the “Dreamers” permanent status in the U.S. in exchange for abolishing birthright citizenship. That single change could forever reduce the allure of sneaking into the U.S.

    Once again, I don't get it. Here are some dopey cliches not to use in your answers: He “didn’t resonate”. He “wasn’t ready for prime time”. He “failed to gain traction”. He was “a wallflower in the debates”. Stop it. I can talk like a Chuck Todd too, but what good would that do anyone? You want to not only win the presidency, but you want to elect someone who is not only conservative but has proven he can achieve difficult conservative goals even in a very hostile environment - right?

    The First Lady of the Conservative Movement, and our longtime friend, Phyllis Schlafly has posted an excellent article on Townhall explaining that a federal case moving to trial in Texas could provide a means to stop the practice of extending automatic U.S. citizenship to children born to illegal aliens. Jeb BushRepublican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently called for legislation to end that unpopular practice, which polls show Americans oppose by more than 2 to 1, and even Jeb Bush admitted that it’s perfectly legitimate to call those children "anchor babies."

    A great brief history leading to the 14th Amendment including comments from the members of Congress at the time. But unfortunately "the intent of the Citizenship Clause was somewhat mixed, leaving the Supreme Court to determine its construction." However.."The Supreme Court has not directly addressed the question of whether the children of illegal immigrants are eligible for birthright citizenship under the Fourteenth Amendment. In INS v. Rios-Pineda (1985), the Court said in dicta, or language not directly part of the holding in the case, that children born in the United States to illegal immigrants are citizens. 47 The Court did...

    The leader of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia on Tuesday attacked Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's call for ending automatic citizenship for children born to immigrants living illegally in the U.S., saying the idea "plays on our worst fears and resentments.""Some in public life — notably, but not only, Donald Trump — have called for an end to birthright citizenship," Archbishop Charles Chaput said in remarks prepared for a church forum that was part of the run-up of activities to a visit later this month by Pope Francis. "This is a profoundly bad idea."The archbishop said he hoped immigration...

    Former Gov. Jim Gilmore, who is seeking the Republican presidential nomination, on Friday challenged GOP front-runner Donald Trump to a “mano a mano” debate on birthright citizenship. Gilmore has criticized Trump’s plan to overturn the birthright citizenship provision of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It guarantees citizenship to babies born in the U.S., even if their parents are in the U.S. illegally. “Donald Trump is wrong on this issue and on his views of the 14th Amendment,” Gilmore said in a statement. “I challenge Donald Trump to debate ‘mano a mano’ on this issue. His comments are irresponsible,...

    Borders: Hillary Clinton scolded Donald Trump for using the term "anchor babies" to describe birth tourism among Hispanic illegals, arguing that they should just be called "babies." Actually, they should be called "welfare babies." According to a Center for Immigration Studies report, a whopping 75% of Mexican and Guatemalan legal and illegal immigrants with children are using federal welfare programs. Primarily they are exploiting Medicaid and the food-stamp and Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) programs. Only immigrants from the Dominican Republic use welfare at higher rates. The states where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare-use rates are all...

    Thanks in very large part to The Donald, the illegal immigration issue has come raging to the fore in the consciousness of a great many American citizens (and others) in recent times. People are not only thinking about the issue, but they have started talking about it, oftentimes with great passion. And this is so regardless of which side of the dispute the contenders align with. It seems there are two basic, contending schools of thought, both premised in the Fourteenth Amendment, which says: Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction...
  • Korean-American groups demand Jeb Bush's apology for 'anchor baby' remark

    Korean-American groups demanded Friday that Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush apologize for accusing Asian people of abusing the birthright citizenship law. Bush made the accusation earlier this week in an apparent attempt to mollify Hispanic voters after coming under fire for using the term "anchor baby," which refers to children born in the U.S. to undocumented parents. The term is widely considered offensive by Hispanics. Asked whether his use of the term would hurt his support among Hispanics, Bush said he was referring mostly to Asians. On Friday, Korean-American organizations, including the Korean American Civic Empowerment, held a joint press...

    Once again, Donald Trump has managed to open up a robust national discussion about an issue that up to this point had been largely ignored by the political class. This time, the discussion is about so-called "birthright citizenship," the idea that whenever a foreign national (regardless of legal status and with a very few exceptions) has a child on American soil, this child automatically becomes an American citizen from birth. This approach to citizenship has been the de facto (though not de jure) approach to the issue of "anchor babies," the children of illegal aliens who come to the United...

    RINO Hugh Hewitt put the big question to Marco Rubio that conservatives are voraciously debating at the moment – does he support efforts to repeal the Fourteenth Amendment as it’s been understood for decades? RINO Rubio follows many other GOP candidates’ response which is that if we simply enforce the laws as they stand now, we don’t need to change birthright citizenship. But repealing it by repeal or statute is a terribly popular idea among the conservative base, and his numbers are slipping, so it may be an existential question for him. And he answered in the negative.

    The Mexican government is warning that Texas’ denial of birth certificates for U.S. children born here to undocumented immigrants stands to imperil the relationship between Mexico and the Lone Star State. The concern was raised in an amicus brief filed Monday evening to lend support to immigrants parents who sued Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children, even after showing their “matrículas,” the ID cards issued by the Mexican consulate to undocumented immigrants. Mexico says the practice stands in stark contrast to the historical practice among countries to accept passports or other forms of ID to issue...

    “Bin Laden 2016” raises the question: Does “birthright citizenship,” regardless of parentage, qualify one to become president of the United States? Now that I have your attention, let’s consider a logical consequence of the current policy of the U.S. government, granting “birthright citizenship” to a child born in the United States of illegal immigrants, otherwise known as an “anchor baby.” Section I of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” At...
