At this rate, it won’t take long before we sink into a third-world abyss. Perhaps then, the bleeding hearts will be satisfied. We will all be standing in soup lines, and fighting over dumpsters.

They are getting what they deserve.

LA County has protected illegals over federal immigration law and boycotted a neighboring state with who they did a lot of business with. Let them bankrupt themselves with their illegals. As they bankrupt themselves I'm sure Arizona will watch and say "Enjoying those illegals?"

Illegal Aliens and their Anchor Babies shouldn't get a penney. Obama's Idiotic,treasonous Border Rhetoric is only making things worse.

Notice how Obama is trying to change his focus now to JOBS. Too late for our Hispandering Traitor Obama the American Public will let him know what we think of his politics in the mid term elections.

The Achor Baby/ 14th Ammenment issue should be given a priority also.

"But even some immigration hawks are wary of such a move. Steven Camarota of the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington-based research organization that supports immigration restrictions, said ending birthright citizenship would harm children for their parents' misdeeds, require new federal registration systems and create other problems. The solution, he said, is to continue driving down illegal immigration with tough enforcement."

How is not giving US citizenship to illegal aliens children going to harm them? The little babies have no worries about citizenship.
The parents are worried because without that US citizenship for their babies they cannot collect welfare. That is who will be harmed.
It's a shame, the amount of money spent to keep those people here would be better spent sending them home.

How does it "harm" children who haven't even been born yet?

No one is advocating retroactively denying citizenship to those already born here.

Just more boo hoo "think of the children" %$#@

Hey if we are going to revise the 14th let us do it right.

Nobody gets citizenship until they graduate high school and pass a suitable test that they are knowledgable about our government and society.

We send the failure to Mexico with a stipend to cover their costs. Still much cheaper than letting them stay and it creates an industry in Mexico to make things better there.

A win win.

Citizenship should only be conferred by birth if BOTH parents are legal residents of the United States at the time of the child's birth. No others need apply. Thanks.
