Certain other laws deemed to be 'written in stone'; i.e. Jim Crow laws were declared unconstitutional------------so, what makes you think that birthright citizenship would be any different?

Due to your father and my parents, that would make us both anchor babies. Even if my grandparents had green cards (no expiration date/unlimited entrance).

What happend to the law is the law?
Even if that info is correct; which I strongly doubt, it would not apply to me since my mother was born/raised in the USA.

PS: my father was already a naturalized US citizen; not a green card holder when I was born.

Calling people scum. People who want to live a decent life. Provide a better future for their children, like all parents do. I wonder what you were do if you were in their shoes and had children to care for. It's says a lot about a person when they use the language you do towards people you have never met. Never interacted with. Never interviewed to see why they came illegally? What led them to leave their homeland to risk their lives to come here. No, because they are beneath you, and you are a better person.
It seems to me that I've heard this somewhere before............

Agreed. Most illegals come here for economic reasons. The vast majority are poor people. White Latinos and Latinos with money, business', land have no reason to come here and stay.

That's right, Jack. According to the National Hispanic Medical Association, a whopping 4% of physicians are hispanic.

We Americans are so beyond this bleeding heart carp. Have your house broken into a few times, your identity or credit cards stolen, compete with them in the ER while a loved one is bleeding, then tell us how you feel. They don't all come here to work. They may come here to try and better themselves but it sure as h*LL

SHOULDN'T BE AT THE EXPENSE OF US.

Wow....I don't have that sense of doom and gloom and hell you speak of. And I live in Houston...if anyone should feel that way here it's me or another Houstonian. Sorry you feel that way. And how do you know that those people in the ER are illegal anyway? You just can "tell"...I get it. Why do people always make themselves out to be victims here. I'm an American Citizen who's quality of life is suffering because of people they assume are illegal in the ER. I don't get it. That just tells me you have a stereotype of what you think an illegal alien is. It's like people saying that black kid with the baggy pants and corn rolls is a gangster. We just "know".

Hispanics have by far, the lowest incidence of serial killers, mass murderes, pedophiles, terrorists, people on disability, suicide, etc. in the US. Hispanics have the highest incidence of employment in the US...
