I for one had no problem seeing where allegiance lies in the case of illegals. They spit on our constitution, spit on our laws, spit on our flag, spit on us. Does that not make things crystal clear?

And; outlaw birthright citizenship for those US born children when both parents are here illegally........just grandfather in those Anchor Babies who were born prior to the cutoff (but the parents, if illegal, will still need to leave the USA)

It depends -- you can count their children either way. Some count only the adult illegals so they get the lower figures. Many illegals have 4 or 5 children here (and 4 or 5 left behind in Mexico) and often the children get counted as American citizens -- but you can go either way on them.

I still suspect there are about 6-8 million illegals here; factoring in their US born Anchors------we may now be discussing ca. 20 million, total. Although; many of the above children may have one US born parent making them full US citizens. And; of the ca. 1 million illegals self deporting-----there may be 2-3 kids along with them making the actual number higher

An analogy would be a US woman going out of country; having some 'fun', getting pregnant, returning to the USA then giving birth------her child would not be an Anchor in any form.
