Do you understand the difference between a “diplomat” and a “birth tourism” woman? Again, diplomats and their staff are invited guests. Illegal aliens are interlopers. Of the two, ONLY the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens are granted citizenship.

Also foreign diplomats etc were exempted from rights to birthright citizenship as they are AGENTS of a foreign power - never heard of diplomatic immunity?

Those terms should also exclude anyone here on a VISITOR"S visa - period.

Absolutely! It is total insanity to allow women to enter this country to give birth to a U.S. citizen. How anyone can condone this, is way beyond my realm of comprehension.

It seems that Illegals get Birth Right Citizenship AND Diplomatic Immunity

Tourism births irk me a ton. Come one, come all - free citizenship for your little baby if you obtain a visa to come here to visit. It might cost them thousands of dollars, but the birth certificate is what they want for later use - and that (birth certificate) is priceless.

Mine too!
I was already against illegals giving birth to US citizens. I found out about birth tourism only recently (when there was a story about the hospital in Tucson AZ offering it) and can not believe it's allowed. Just makes me shake my head.
For people to condone it just boggles the mind. This is wrong is every way.

This is pretty much how all Illegals and their supporters think. It's only illegal if you get caught

We've pretty much uncovered how the Illegals and their ilk think on this one. It's only illegal if you get caught. They apparently now think that they are entitled the same rights as foreign diplomats too.

Then that they want to declare my grandfather illegal because in 1907 when my great-grandfather immigrated from Italy he and his wife gave birth to my grandfather before citizenship was obtained. By extension, then I become an illegal alien. It's a slippery slope. There are a lot of legal citizens born here who might lose their citizenship because of this.
deb, you are getting a little carried away with yourself there.
We are a Constitutional Republic, NOT a Democracy, therefore that majority would not be able to make such a change. African Americans were granted citizenship. Your great grandparents did apply for citizenship, didn't they? They didn't sneak accross the border did they?
