McCain is blowing in the wind again. Why am I not surprised?

Hmm, Obama and Napilatano don't think it would be right to change birthright citizenship to even the requirement that at least one parent be a citizen or legal resident in order for their newborn to gain instant citizenship but they have no problem changing our immigration laws and granting amnesty to millions of illegal invaders? The first would benefit America and Americans but the second one would benefit foreigners. Guess we know where they both stand, don't we?

It's not surprising.

Anything that the US people favor, this administration seems to be against. After all, isn't it far left policy to favor emotion over logic? You can't hurt the poor illegals feelings, after all!

You got that one right - they're ONLY in favour of change it if it's what THEY want.

None of the recent ones because they are all nothing but puppets of their globalist masters. If they believed in the American people, they would not be allowed to run for office.

What's worse for Obama is that he has to pretend handing out citizenship and welfare handouts to anyone who comes and gives birth is the greatest thing yet even with 20% unemployment in some parts of the country. Bush could kind of get away with it because the sheet didn't hit the fan yet, unemployment was a bit lower. Same with Clinton - and NAFTA was his legacy.

Illegals don’t want citizenship. They only want the legal right to remain here. They get the citizenship benefits through their U.S.-born children. It’s a win-win for them, and a HUGE loss for the taxpayers of this country.

Why would anyone think any different of this WH?

Some people in the WH still have not provided TRUSTED proof that they were even born in the US themselves.

This WH and this dem congress are for as many illegals as they can get in here before they are totally out of control of the country in 2012.
