"Oklahoma Senate panel OKs tough anti-immigration bills"

Published: Feb 15, 2011
By The Associated Press

A Senate committee has approved bills denying Oklahoma citizenship to babies born to illegal immigrants and one dubbed “Arizona-plus” that would allow police to confiscate property, like homes and vehicles, belonging to those in the country illegally.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved both bills on Tuesday on a straight party-line vote, with Democrats opposing the measures.

Freshman Sen. Ralph Shortey, who wrote the bills, said he disagrees with the current interpretation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that babies born in the U.S. automatically become American citizens. The Oklahoma City Republican says his bill on asset forfeiture and seizure would give law enforcement an incentive to capture and jail illegal immigrants.

Democratic Sen. Judy Eason-McIntyre described the bills as “mean-spirited,” and accused Shortey of political pandering.

Sounds like Oklahoma may be the trailblazer for the nation that Arizona tried to be.

Actaully, AZ, SB 1070 and OK, HB 1804 are almost identical.
It's just the HB 1804 is still in full swing.

"UPDATE"

Measure targeting birthright citizenship clears Senate Judiciary Committee
A measure that would redefine criteria for state citizenship won approval from the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

“We’re trying to remedy what we consider to be an incorrect interpretation of citizenship requirements by the federal government,” said Sen. Ralph Shortey, R-Oklahoma City. “We cannot change the federal government’s definition of citizenship, but we can change the criteria for state citizenship. We want to urge Congress to reconsider birthright citizenship, while discouraging illegal immigrants from coming to Oklahoma.”

Birthright citozenship for the children of illegals aside, I can't see why legislators are opposed to closing the "tourism birthright" loophole at the very LEAST. Someone here on a tourist visa has ZERO right to citizenship for a baby born on US soil imho.

What is "State citizenship"? what a load of crap...

Just because Ralph disagrees with the "current interpretation" of the 14th, doesn't mean laws sponsored by him on citizenship are consitutional.

Quote:
1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.


No State includes Oklahoma Ralph...
