It is total insanity. Illegals arenít only coming here to work. Many come for the sole purpose of giving birth to avail themselves of tax-funded benefits, and they arenít ashamed to admit it. They are parasites, period. If our government would deny benefits to illegals, we would see a drastic decline in anchor births. Whatever it takes, this travesty must end.

The simple and factual answer is that birthright citizenship is to date Constitutional.

there is no other "argument" needed.
So your viewpoint is we have no right to argue for or against any law in the USA? Strange way of being "free"

Yep, and I notice she said that now she had her little anchor she "no longer feared deportation" so was willing to give her name.

Time to end this ^%$#

Didn't you get the memo? Americans can't argue for an amendment to the constitution but the pro-illegals can argue against our immigration laws.

Probably, I think the video was posted on youtube about a year ago - I just happened across it while browsing on that site. I don't think unless you preface a thread with "news" there's anything that says a posting has to be about only current events?

I was just generally disgusted with the whole attitude portrayed.

I continue to believe that more should be asked of Mexico: it should be shouldering responsibilities proportional to its status in the world.

Mexico is not a poor country
well, i think the figerprint idea seams well... i hate when people get away with not paying fair bills. ...why are we Alabama's and Mississippi's welfare program? so either PAY to build a great wall like the Chinese did...or annex...or destroy Mexico. all of these choices are expensive as the "welfare" you mentioned...ofcourse the mexicans would be paying taxes so i don't see how annexation is a wellfare program.

were are you "not" arguing for an ammendment? you are doing it here... why don't you mail your representative and senator? i think that would be because it would be a waste of time...since such ammendament that you plan to propose would deteriorate the constitution. I think we should have mandatory voting and tests for citizenship...for everyone. also you must be required to listen to all the debates and to the plateforms of both end candidates[and perhaps their explinations and rebuttles thereof]

You missed the point. Yes I am arguing for an amendment to the Constitution to change birthright citizenship and I am contacting our congressmen about it but the pro-illegals think it wrong to change it even though amendments to the Constitution have been made before. Yet they have no problem arguing to change our immigration laws. In otherwords they adhere to a double standard.

Actually, an amendment wouldn't even be required. All that needs to be done is for the Supreme Court to read the 14th thoroughly and they will realize that birthright citizenship was never intended for babies of illegal alien parents and deny it from then on.
