There you go!
Follow Austrailia:

In order for Anchor babies to qualify,

>they must be 18 or over,
>out of the hands of their parents,
>career minded,
>on the road to Self-sufficiency,
>must speak fluent english,
>no perks, no special privleges or rights, and still
>not fully qualified for all right entitled to legal US citizens.
such as, voting, Political office,ect.

Citizenship must be "revokable"

3 Strikes and your out of here, and within 48hr's

No exceptions.
No Excuses,
No sob stories.

Case Closed!

Would anyone like to add to or edit that?

My 2 cents: I have always stated that any anchor baby born in the US to two illegal alien parents after the 1986 amnesty should NOT be grandfathered in and should automatically be considered citizens of their parents country of origin.

IMHO, The 14th Amendment should be abolished. I have always strongly felt that two illegal aliens are not capable of reproducing an American citizen.


ETA: tinman, I'd like to be the arbitrator of the punishments for any criminal acts perpetrated post illegal entry. As for my thoughts with regards to anchor babies, you already knew my answer

Obviously; no new Anchor Babies would receive birthright citizenship.
Sorry, you must have me confused with someone else. I have never felt this way or made such a statement.

Pitbull is the Judge...
I would like the job of seeking out and destroying the tunnels illegals and drug smugglers use to enter our country.
