The US took half of Mexico and to make it worse it took the half with all the good cities and infrastructure.

Citizenship by birth has to go. Groups are making big money out of being paid to organize and take care of people from overseas, who come here for the sole purpose of giving birth of a baby, to be granted citizenship.

It is also why most other industrialized nations now require at least one of the parents be a citizen, for a child to qualify; which I believe is more than reasonable and fair.

WTH? Those good cities and their infrastructures were built afterwards. The U.S. did not take half of Mexico anyway. They paid 15 million dollars to Mexico for some southwest territories.

I think we should just adopt Mexico's immigration laws.

All well and good except - Mexico has citizenship by "right of soil" - aka birthright citizenship. Any child born within the confines of Mexican territory is automatically a Mexican citizen.

But then they ALSO have citizenship by "right of blood" where any child born of Mexican citizens OUTSIDE Mexico (ie US anchor babies) have automatic citizenship rights in Mexico.

OK, you only reiterated what I said. You said nothing contradictory. In your post, with the exclusion of "re-read [by] first sentence and you [that would be the person you directed your post at - me] will see what this has to do with illegal immigration" when I'd already addressed the issue.

But I am glad that you agreed with my post. And you are continuing to reiterate what I said in your subsequent posts. Why on earth would I refute what you said, when you're only copying what I originally said? I'm glad I could help you articulate your "arguments".

No, I'm not ashamed of anything about this country. Sorry about McCain (I really am); it's far too late for him. He made a colossal mistake in his VP choice and that sank his ship.

Anchor babies, illegals, legals, Pro-illegals, what difference does it make? What they're NOT is True Americans who Love this country.
Not that that makes much difference to you.
