I know.. I didn't say anything about them NOT being U.S. citizens NOW..
YOU said. they became U.S. citizens before coming here..
well.. here are a few past posts of yours..

No your not insane. WAS is the key word. I believe she still had to take the citizenship test however and passed. She came here illegally and was an illegal immigrant for a while. When I took a test on see how much I

My mom got married and became pregnant in Mexico. She came over here and had me. My dad is an American citizen, therefore I am an American. I am just as American as Mitt Romney

so,, if your mother.. who you claimed several times to be a LEGAL U.S. citizen PRIOR to entering our country.. PRIOR to having a child.. how is this possible??? How can an illegal pregnant woman able to be in our country.. give birth and still be legal at the same??? I would assume that baby would in fact be an anchor baby... if she did NOT have legal citizenship...

I never said prior, I forgot what its called but some sort of "status" that if your husband is an American citizen you can come here. She didn't become a citizen right away, she was a resident. She didn't become a citizen until I believe 1998-1999.

resident does not mean LEGAL U.S. citizen..
so in other words.. you were born BEFORE she was an actual LEGAL U.S. citizen.. making you what is termed.. an anchor baby.. just because your father..."may" have been a full U.S. citizen.. it still does not exclude the fact that being just a resident.. is far from being an actual legal U.S. citizen.

and we only have your word.. that they are actually LEGAL U.S. citizens...

AHHHHH........

"Was illegal, then not.....now legal, daddy was legal, mommy was a "resident, became legal, was illegal, I was born here.....I'm legal!

THIS is gettin' old and re-enforces MY belief that:

(1). Those who came here ILLEGALLY.......should NOT EVER be granted ANY Amnesty or if they have/had "anchor babies" NOT AUTOMATICALLY LEGAL American citizens because they were physically, born on American soil.
(2). A HEAVILY GUARDED BORDER.......guarded with a massive arsenal of many weapons and rocket launchers with a "SHOOT FIRST" policy strictly adhered to and routinely enforced!
(3). A MASSIVE roundup of ALL known ILLEGAL immigrants and IMMEDIATE deportation of them........could put 1000 of 'em on a 747 at a time......and the tight quarters of the flight to Mexico City, New Delhi, Bogota, Tegucigalpa or wherever else........should NOT be anything they are not already used to......if they can live so comfortably with 10 or 12 in a one bedroom apartment!
WHATEVER the total cost..........so be it! SEND the bill to the Presidents of whatever country the flights go to!
(4). A MASSIVE roundup of ALL known employers of ILLEGALS here in America and either offer them a spot on the plane with the illegals or REAL jailtime!
(5). NEW LAWS enacted immediately......allowing the IMMEDIATE USE of lethal force to "prevent" ANYONE from even thinking of crossing.....as a FIRST choice of DEFENSE/border protection/security.......for all border guards!
AND......NEW LAWS......Greatly RESTRICTING and tightening up the necessary requirements/qualifications for ANYONE to BECOME a LEGAL AMERICAN citizen too!
(6). ENFORCEMENT of ALL of the ABOVE forever!

Anything short of the above options IS NOT going to do a thing for this problem and actually.....encourages the same old thing to continue and get even worse!
I WOULD VOTE AGAIN..........for the politician who publicly states HE/SHE WOULD SUPPORT AND SEEK.........for ALL of the ABOVE to happen and exist!

resident may not mean legal but it definitely does not mean illegal. Anchor babies are only children of illegals.

Okay PL, I accept your claims, but maybe you should just ask your parents so that we can know for sure. All this speculating is rather pointless.

You: "I forgot what its called..."

Find out what it's called, and then we'll know.

Speaking for myself, I couldn't care less about your parents' immigration status, but since it's a topic of discussion, I'd like to know the facts of that discussion.

which is a temparary visa.. still someone that is NOT of OUR country.. still means NOT a U.S. citizen.. so to be correct on this.. you are in fact an anchor baby...

and we still only have your word for it.. that they are now.. LEGAL U.S. citizens.. and why would you be wanting a dual citizenship? Why would ANYONE who.. says.. they are an American,..(let me re-phrase that) who says they are a U.S. citizen.. EVER want to even consider becoming or having legal citizenship with mexico? To me.. that's just a mexican who wants to be able to gain everything from America.. then when thier done using our country,, they'll take what they obtained from America.. and jump back over to mexico.. doesn't seem to be a real American to me...
