I would assume that unlike his mother and possibly some of his siblings, he was born here thus a citizen. As for his mom.....single mother to seven? Yeah, I bet there was no drain on social services for that
Exactly. Now he can afford to send his family home and they can get off the taxpayers dole.

In all reality, he isn't an American at all. But since you want to consider him a citizen, in deference to what the Constitution actually says, then maybe you can take care of his criminal family.

Yes amy I can and I did. watching that HUGH grin on his face, the obvious PRIDE he exuded and the statement he made about being proud to be AMERICAN,
His running through the court wearing the AMERICAN FLAG draped over his shoulder.

Yes I can share that moment and reciprocate and I Did,

Service to the country of his choice to gain citizen ship or if he was born here........that makes this young man a hero and we as a society are the poorer for it...........

Of course I can, AMC, and I do, but I find it completely disingenuous for you to hold this man up as the poster boy for Mexican anchor babies. We both know that he is an exception rather than the rule, thus my jaded outlook.

Its a good story in addition to all your guys' bad stories.
Proof that someone can come to this country, and still love it.

They just have to win olympic gold medals for you guys to believe it.
