I wonder if Rubio is backing the same thing that automatically made him a Citizen?

You do know that the term "Anchor Baby", while usually attached to illegals, also applies to those here legally and have zero problem using it for the same purpose? I bet you don't, seems like most Cons have that same confusion.

No, it is YOU who is confused. I explained it all to you in another post. Here we go again

Urban Dictionary: anchor baby


Why would someone who is here legally and has a green card need to have a child to anchor them here?

I live in a border town. It's ridiculous that a Mexican national can cross the border in labor and have to be admitted to the county hospital for US taxpayers to pay for the baby's birth. Not only that, the baby is a US citizen. If you take away the citizenship benefit, women will not risk themselves or their babies to get US citizenship.

Anchor baby" is a pejorative term for a child born in the United States to non-citizen parents; the child, an American citizen by jus soli, supposedly could later facilitate immigration for relatives who would not otherwise qualify for permanent residence. The term is generally used as a derogatory reference to the supposed role of the child, who automatically qualifies as an American citizen and can later act as a sponsor for other family members.
The term is often used in the context of the debate over illegal immigration to the United States to refer to children of illegal immigrants, but may be used for the child of any immigrant. A similar term, "passport baby", has been used in Canada for children born through so-called "maternity" or birth tourism."
Anchor baby - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hopefully that clears up what I stated, it does not matter that the term is normally used in reference to illegals, it applies to all children that are born here to non-citizens.

The newborns of legal immigrants are lawful citizens according to our Constitution so they aren't anchor babies. Someone needs to read the Constitution.

Please point out the part that says the birthright to Citizenship excludes someone here illegally. I seem to have missed it, since the 14th says nothing of the sort.
"
Since the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment to the constitution on July 9, 1868, the citizenship of persons born in the United States has been controlled by its Citizenship Clause, which states:
"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."
Birthright citizenship in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So, ion other words we have Cons that once again want to undo what the founders wrote by adding more Amendments to deny people their rights. You guys only seem to agree with the Founders when it agrees with your own agenda. Once Again, Noted

No, the 14th amendment was created to grant citizenship to former slaves and their offspring. It was never meant to grant citizenship to the children of illegal aliens.

You only seem to agree...when it agrees with YOUR agenda. Once again, noted. Period.

Do some extensive research on this topic. You will find that many lawmakers are in agreement that the 14th does NOT automatically grant citizenship to the spawn of illegals.

House Republicans Go After Birthright Citizenship

What's the big deal about cancelling birthright? More and more countries are putting a stop to that unless at least 1 parent is a citizen of that country, it's def time for the US to do the same thing.
It is about time Congress changes this rule. Remember the Chines Birthing house that was busted.

These SA countries really need to clean up their own countries and stop dumping their unwanted poor on the US. Really goes to show that expedited deportation and back charging to these countries would send a clear message.

Hmmm , Let's subtract about 5M from their add package to pay for deportation.
