So this isn't about the law at all, it's about excluding minorities (your choice of words) from getting stuff so there's more for you?

Hey, at least you're honest about it.

No I would not. The loop needs to stop.

Because someone of another country is born on this soil, an American does not it make.

Sorry for the sins of your parents but go home to your heritage.

Why not? The "anchor" baby is less American than you or I.

Sorry for your prejudice against foreigners, but being born on this soil, in most cases, an American it does make.
