    President Trump said Monday that he's opposed to allowing immigrants into the U.S. who are dependent on welfare, citing the country's already extensive financial commitments. "I donít want to have anyone coming in thatís on welfare,Ē Trump told Breitbart News in an Oval Office interview. ďWe have a problem, because we have politicians that are not strong, or they have bad intentions, or they want to get votes, because they think if they come in theyíre going to vote Democrat, you know, for the most part," he added.

    Americaís foreign-born population has reached its highest level in over 100 years, driven by immigrants from Latin America, according to new Census Bureau data. Whatís more, the Pew Research Center has found that most Latinos feel the percentage of foreigners in the United States is just about right, though 14 percent said America needs more. The analysis from Pew showed that the last 50 years have seen the biggest surge in immigration into the U.S. since before the Civil War. There are currently 44-45 million foreign-born in the U.S., 14 percent of the total population. "Today, immigrants from Latin America...

    The number of United States-born children of illegal aliens in ten states is more than four times the total population of Boston, Massachusettes, data reveals. The U.S.-born children of illegal aliens are commonly known as "anchor babies," as they "anchor" their illegal alien and noncitizen parents in the U.S. when they are granted immediate birthright citizenship. There are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in the country, a population that exceeds the total number of annual American births, as about 300,000 anchor babies are born every year, exceeding the total number of American births in 48 states.

    A series of federal arrests in California last month has brought the issue of what‚Äôs known as birth tourism back into the news. In this case, nearly two dozen people were charged for arranging visas and transportation for pregnant women, primarily from China, who came to California for the purpose of giving birth and obtaining a US birth certificate for their babies. They then returned home to China. While technically legal, this seems to fly in the face of what our laws intend.

    Dongyuan Liís business was called ďYou Win USA,Ē and authorities say she coached pregnant Chinese women on how to get into the United States to deliver babies who would automatically enjoy all the benefits of American citizenship. Over two years, the now-41-year-old raked in millions through her business, where mothers-to-be paid between $40,000 and $80,000 each to come to California, stay in an upscale apartment and give birth, authorities said. Li, who was arrested Thursday, is one of 20 people charged in the first federal crackdown on birth tourism businesses that prosecutors said brought hundreds of pregnant women to the...

    Currently, pre-K programs are spread out on individual campuses, and the district believes bringing them all to the same place will help eliminate any disparities that exist between schools and provide all kids the same opportunity. "Manor is growing every single day," said Nichole Aguirre, MISD's director of early childhood... The campus would be able to support 700 students at the outset, enough for the current demand, with room to expand the campus "to ensure that we have space for everybody"... Ideally, the district would like to be able to offer full-day pre-K to all 3- and 4-year-olds... funding for...

    Americans are being sold the fairy tale that the whole world has a constitutional right to come here, give birth, and get a free American passport. We‚Äôre told it‚Äôs ‚Äúun-American‚ÄĚ to dare say otherwise, but the growing phenomenon of ‚Äúbirth tourism‚ÄĚ is the real affront to American values.There are, at this moment, hundreds of companies offering rich foreigners all-inclusive birth vacations to beautiful American tourist destinations. Astonishingly, pregnant jetsetters from around the world step off planes, clear customs with their tourist visas, and are whisked from airports to specialty birth tourism hospitals that exist just for this purpose. The hotel...
  • Trump Has The Authority ó And Duty ó To End Birthright Citizenship

    11/07/2018 9:44:36 AM PST · by Liberty7732 · 13 replies
    President Trump has voiced his intent to end birthright citizenship through an executive order. To those on the left, his comment sounded outlandish and devoid of any attachment to reality. To others, the comment was an expression of wishful thinking, or worse yet, a hollow political stunt. Indeed, the Presidentís only defense of his claim when pressed was, ďNow, theyíre saying that I can.Ē Well, who is they? And to whom are they saying it? Immediately, reporters and politicians alike responded with claims of the planís unconstitutionality. On the same day that President Trump spoke of the idea, Adam Liptak...

    Mark Levin is more than a talk radio star, he is a successful attorney who was the chief of staff to President Reagan Attorney General Edwin Meese and a Constitutional scholar who has written six books (by my count) on Constitutional issues. Levin explains that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution does not grant birthright citizenship on anyone born inside our borders. He argues that says there is no such constitutional rule. Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution which lays out the powers of Congress says. ďThe Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and...

    The president rolled another flash grenade onto our political stage this week, and it sent the Trump Hate Media into a predictable tizzy. Trump was called a racist - for the umpteenth time - because he said he plans to use an executive order to put an end to birthright citizenship. Birthright citizenship, made possible by the 14th Amendment, is the automatic granting of U.S. citizenship to any Mexican, Chinese, Russian, Kenyan or Martian baby who is born on American soil. I made up the Martian part, though it's probably true. But thanks to a relatively recent and very liberal...

    Immigration is still at the top of the political discussion, especially after President Trumpís recent comments about citizen birthright. A common talking point for those who are in favor of illegals jumping the border to have a child and stay in the United States is ďwell, that is just what the Fourteenth Amendment allows.Ē Does it, however? Judge Andrew Napolitano is a Fox News commentator on legal issues. He weighed in on the matter during "Outnumbered," but gave no real argument as to why Trump was wrong. His main stance was ďso says the Constitution,Ē but he did not mention...

    There are nearly 300,000 children of illegal aliens born in the United States every year, exceeding the total number of U.S. births in 48 states. New wide-ranging analysis by the Center for Immigration StudiesĎ Steven Camarotta reveals that there are roughly 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants in the U.S. The children of illegal aliens are commonly known as ďanchor babies,Ē as they anchor their illegal alien and noncitizen parents in the U.S. and eventually are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country through the process known as ďchain migration.Ē The analysis notes that...

    Now the Dems are on the defensive as Trump sends the military and a clear message that he will defend Americaís sovereignty in the face of what he calls an ďinvasion.Ē The change is striking. Four months ago, critics on the left wouldnít shut up about the border and some, like Mayor Bill de Blasio, made grandstanding trips to Texas detention facilities and held press conferences to denounce Trump in the harshest possible language. Now, despite the presidentís tough talk and use of the military, leftist pols hardly make a peep, fearful that defending the caravan could be political suicide....

    With only six days to go until the midterms, the last thing Paul Ryan wants to do is tick off POTUS. With a massive migrant caravan forcing the issue to surface in an undeniable way, President Trump has been absolutely fervent regarding immigration as of late. This should come as no surprise, however, for anyone who paid even the slightest semblance of attention to the 2016 election. President Trump, then a candidate for the republican party, was the only candidate to come out and publicly verbalize the idea of creating a physical, all-encompassing deterrent to illegal immigration upon our southern...

    President Trumpís announcement Tuesday that he is preparing an executive order to end birthright citizenship has the left and even some conservatives in an uproar. But the president is correct when he says that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution does not require universal birthright citizenship. An executive order by President Trump ending birthright citizenship would face a certain court challenge that would wind up in the Supreme Court. But based on my research of this issue over several years, I believe the presidentís view is consistent with the view of the framers of the amendment. Those who claim the...

    President Trump said Wednesday heís still committed to ending birthright citizenship for babies born to illegal immigrants, but would prefer to go through Congress rather than use an executive order. Thatís a softening of his stance from an interview published Tuesday, where he told Axios, an online political outlet, that he was preparing an executive order to test the boundaries of the Constitutionís definitions of automatic citizenship. Mr. Trump, who during the 2016 campaign had called President Obamaís executive actions on immigration unconstitutional and illegal, also cited those as precedent for his own plans. ďIf he can do DACA we...

    History, as the saying goes, is a lie agreed upon and there has perhaps been no bigger lie detrimental to the future national security and economic well-being of the United States that the 14th Amendment, clearly written to protect the rights of African-American slaves liberated by the first Republican President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, somehow confers citizenship on the offspring of anybody whose pregnant and can sneak past the U.S. Border Patrol. U.S. citizenship is rendered meaningless if it is defined as an accident of geography and it is the clear that this was not the intention authors...
