    The Daily Caller ^ | April 25, 2013 | Caroline May
    The Department of Agriculture, via the Mexican government, assures potentially ineligible immigrants that they can still apply for food stamps on behalf of their eligible children without giving information about their immigration status, according to documents released Thursday by Judicial Watch. A USDA Spanish language flyer provided to the Mexican Embassy, according to Judicial Watch, reads that if potentially ineligible immigrants want to obtain benefits for their children they “need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.” The Daily Caller has reported extensively about the USDA/Mexico partnership that seeks to promote taxpayer-funded nutrition...
  • Babies and Immigration Reform (Not one word in the 844-page law mentions Birthright Citizenship)

    American Thinker ^ | 04/24/2013 | Cindy Simpson
    Not a single word in the 844-page "Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act" introduced by Senator Marco Rubio and the "Gang of Eight" addresses the controversial practice of "birthright citizenship." Birthright citizenship is the common description given to the automatic grant of U.S. citizenship to babies born in the U.S. regardless of the citizenship status of the parents. Many experts agree with the verdict of law professor Lino Graglia -- that the practice generates "perhaps the greatest possible inducement to illegal entry." The failure of Congress to confront the subject is nothing new. The "four pillars" of the...

But some of the facilities, which were in Rowland Heights or Hacienda Heights, were cited for building and fire code violations, according to a report released Thursday.

    Legal scholars and constitutional lawyers please opine. Many people want to discontinue the federal government’s interpretation of the 14th Amendment’s birthright citizenship clause. People feel that it is just plain wrong for people to be awarded citizenship because their parents broke the law. The illegal immigrant parents will become legal citizens too when their citizen children turn 18, so who needs all that headache of jumping through amnesty hoops. (They can become a citizen here and never learn English). Anybody who didn’t qualify for amnesty (with legal documents or falsified documents) in 1986 just stayed anyway. There are four ways...
  • ILLEGAL Immigrants Bear 8% of Children in the U.S.

    Fox News ^ | August 11, 2010 | L.A. Holmes
    As discussion over whether to end birthright citizenship intensifies, a new study of Census Bureau data reveals that 8 percent of children born in the United States in 2008 were parented by illegal immigrants. The Pew Hispanic Center, a project of polling organization Pew Research Center, finds that, of the 4.3 million babies born in 2008, roughly 340,000 were born to undocumented aliens. This is double the percentage of illegal immigrants in the U.S., owing in part to the fact that the illegal immigrant population is largely comprised of men and women at birthing age. In addition, high birthrates among...

    Should Lawmakers Consider a Birthright Citizenship Change to the Constitution? Yes, denying kids automatic citizenship would curb illegal immigration. No, this is not the issue that warrants a change to the U.S. Constitution. Maybe, because birthplace alone should not make the child of an illegal a U.S. citizen. Other (leave a comment)
  • Across Texas, 60,000 born to noncitizen mothers - 11,000 at Parkland

    The Dallas Morning News ^ | August 8, 2010 | By SHERRY JACOBSON
    Republican members of Congress press for changes to the 14th Amendment of the Constitution that would prevent automatic citizenship for babies born to illegal immigrants. The debate could resonate in Texas, where not only 1.5 million illegal immigrants are estimated to reside but at least 60,000 babies are added to their households annually. Parkland Memorial Hospital delivers more of those babies than any other hospital in the state. Last year at Parkland, 11,071 babies were born to women who were noncitizens, about 74 percent of total deliveries. Most of these women are believed to be in the country illegally. In...

    Politico ^ | 07/29/2010 | Andy Barr
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced Wednesday night that he is considering introducing a constitutional amendment that would change existing law to no longer grant citizenship to the children of immigrants born in the United States. Currently, the 14th Amendment grants citizenship to any child born within the United States. But with 12 million illegal immigrants living in the United States, Graham said it may be time to restrict the ability of immigrants to have children who become citizens just because they are born within the country. “I may introduce a constitutional amendment that changes the rules if you have a...

    What can $1,475 buy you in modern China? Not a Tiffany diamond or a mini-sedan, say Robert Zhou and Daisy Chao. But for that price, they guarantee you something more lasting, with unquestioned future benefits: a U.S. passport and citizenship for your new baby. Zhou and Chao, a husband and wife from Taiwan who now live in Shanghai, run one of China's oldest and most successful consultancies helping well-heeled expectant Chinese mothers travel to the United States to give birth. The couple's service, outlined in a PowerPoint presentation, includes connecting the expectant mothers with one of three Chinese-owned "baby care...

    Don’t think I wouldn’t catch the next flight out of Istanbul and head for the U.S. if I had the money and opportunity to birth my baby in the best country in the world, and have my child become, presto, a legalized citizen of the U.S. All told, it would cost me about $45,000 including luxury hotel accommodations along with hospital and doctor’s costs. Not a bad price to pay for instant access to excellent medical, educational, and economic prospects. Oh, and my baby also gets the privilege of applying for her foreign born family members to join her once...

    AP via SacBee ^ | 6/15/10 | MICHELLE PRICE Associated Press Writer
    PHOENIX -- Emboldened by passage of the nation's toughest law against illegal immigration, the Arizona politician who sponsored the measure now wants to deny U.S. citizenship to children born in this country to undocumented parents. Legal scholars laugh out loud at Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce's proposal and warn that it would be blatantly unconstitutional, since the 14th Amendment guarantees citizenship to anyone born in the U.S. But Pearce brushes aside such concerns. And given the charged political atmosphere in Arizona, and public anger over what many regard as a failure by the federal government to secure the border, some...

    The minority population in the United States is steadily rising and makes up 35% of the total, advancing an unmistakable trend that could render them the new American majority by midcentury. New Census Bureau estimates for 2009 show that the minority population grew by 2.5%, boosted by a surge in births among Latinos and an increase in the number of people who describe themselves as multiracial. During this time, the white population remained flat, making up roughly 65% of the country (199.9 million people). In 2000, whites comprised 79% of the total population and minorities 21%. Four states -- Hawaii,...

    Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas is a fairly famous institution and for a variety of reasons: 1. John F. Kennedy died there in 1963 2. Lee Harvey Oswald died there shortly after 3. Jack Ruby, who killed Lee Harvey Oswald, died there a few years later by coincidence On the flip side, Parkland is also home to the second busiest maternity ward in the country with almost 16,000 new babies arriving each year. (That's almost 44 per day — every day) A recent patient survey indicated that 70 percent of the women who gave birth at Parkland in the...

    Author of Arizona Immigration Law Wants To End Birthright Citizenship The author of Arizona's immigration law, state Sen. Russell Pearce, told constituents he wants to pass another measure to invalidate citizenship granted to the children of illegal aliens. Pearce wrote that he plans to "push for an Arizona bill that would refuse to accept or issue a birth certificate that recognizes citizenship to those born to illegal aliens, unless one parent is a citizen," in an email obtained by Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO. Pearce also forwarded an email from another correspondent expanding on the proposal — which he later told...

    Last weekend, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) spoke at a Tea Party gathering in Ramona, CA. Hunter was asked whether he thought that U.S. born children of illegal immigrants should be deported along with their parents. Hunter said: “I would have to, yes. And let me tell you why. You can say, ‘You are a mean guy. That’s not a humanitarian thing to do.’ We simply cannot afford what we’re doing right now. We just can’t afford it. California is going under. We’re not being mean. We’re just saying, ‘It takes more than just walking across the border to become an...

    Republican lawmakers in Congress are sponsoring a bill that seeks to abolish birthright citizenship for children born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents. Federal law automatically grants citizenship to any person born on American soil, regardless of the immigration status of the child's parents. Supporters of the bill say that many people come to this country for the express purpose of having children who are American citizens, making the family eligible for welfare and other government benefits. "You have many people coming to this country illegally," said Rep. Gary Miller, R-Brea, a co-sponsor of the legislation. "They come...

    Maryland’s foreign-born population has grown by 34.6 percent while its native-born population has increased by 3.3 percent. .Public school enrollment of students who require special instruction in English has soared even more, rising by 93.5 percent from 2000 to 2008 while overall enrollment declined slightly. A pair of recently released documents on illegal aliens in Maryland discuss the effect the spending has had on the state treasury. Both agree the cash-strapped state is spending at least $448 million on children of undocumented aliens per year and more than $100 million on health care costs. The difference is in how one...

    According to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, more than half -- 53 percent -- of Latinas get pregnant by their 20th birthday, nearly twice the national average. "There's a big disconnect between pregnancy rates and what Latina families want and value," said Ruthie Flores, senior manager of the National Campaign's Latino Initiative. Of the 759 Latino teens surveyed, 49 percent said their parents most influenced their decisions about sex, compared with 14 percent who cited friends. Three percent cited religious leaders, 2 percent teachers and 2 percent the media.
