New stuff they are planning

http://www.azstarnet.com/dailystar/218441

Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, says he is introducing measures this legislative session to:

● Deny regular birth certificates to babies born in Arizona unless at least one parent proves citizenship.

● Expand the state crime of trespass to cover anyone in the U.S. without authorization.

● Require proof of legal presence in the U.S. to register a vehicle or get a title.

● Deny workers' compensation benefits to undocumented workers injured on the job.

● Bar local policies that prohibit police officers from checking the immigration status of those they encounter.
-------------------------------------------------

Pearce acknowledged courts have ruled the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, passed in the wake of the Civil War to provide equal protection under the law, guarantees citizenship to anyone born in this country.
But he said extending that right to babies born of parents in the U.S. illegally is based on a misreading of the amendment.

He notes it says citizenship requires not just birth in the United States but also that the person is "subject to the jurisdiction" of this country, which he said does not apply to people here illegally.

"Rep. Tom Prezelski, D-Tucson, said the guarantee of citizenship to children born in the United States to illegal-entrant parents has been upheld by the courts for more than a century, including in 1898 by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The court ruled that a child born in San Francisco of Chinese parents who were excluded from citizenship based on the Chinese Exclusion laws was a citizen of the United States by virtue of the 14th Amendment.

Keep in mind that this case FROM OVER A HUNDRED YEARS AGO that the parents were legally in the US.

Plan limits babies' rights to citizenship (http://www.azstarnet.com/altsn/default/newsletterclickthru/218441 - broken link)

Birth certificates would be denied to those without a legal parent

● Deny regular birth certificates to babies born in Arizona unless at least one parent proves citizenship.

● Expand the state crime of trespass to cover anyone in the U.S. without authorization.

● Require proof of legal presence in the U.S. to register a vehicle or get a title.
● Deny workers' compensation benefits to undocumented workers injured on the job.

● Bar local policies that prohibit police officers from checking the immigration status of those they encounter.

Sounds great! Definitely another huge step in the right direction. But it should have been done a generation ago. Hopefully the other states will follow Arizona's example without waiting until they are infested with illegals before taking action.

The governor will surely veto any bill that deals with denying anything to babies born in arizona.

I don't understand the triumphalism.

Even IF you want amnesty, sympathize with those who are here and working, etc.... why on EARTH would you find pleasure in the striking down of laws meant to stop the flagrant abuse of the system (i.e., anchor babies)?


Can you explain it?

Being that the anti illegal immigrant sentiment is growing and developing teeth; the pro illegal crowd will use any trick, no matter how immoral or flat criminal, to try to maintain the status quo.

The party is over; guys. Wake up and see a changed America......a nation for English speaking people of any race/ethnicity.

Multiculturalism is dead.

That flaw in the law will be corrected within 12 months.

Grandfather those Anchors born before the impending cutoff; say January 1st, 2009.......those born after 12-21-2008 are flat out of luck.

That stated: if the mother is here legally (even a tourist visa works), said child born after the cutoff would still qualify as an Anchor.
