Of course not, they would fight it tooth and nail. Hopefully after the Nov. elections it will have a chance.

H.R.1868 - Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009

OpenCongress Summary

This bill would eliminate birthright citizenship for children born to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. Current U.S. law automatically recognizes any person born on American soil as a natural born citizen. Under the bill, only children with at least one parent who is a U.S. citizen, a legal permanent resident, or an undocumented immigrant serving in the military would be considered citizens.

There is one troubling part about this bill and that is the part that says if an "undomented" immigrant is serving in the military that their newborn would be considered a citizen. Since illegal aliens cannot serve in our military in the first place that part doesn't make any sense to me.

It does need further investigation and clarification. Instead of "undocumented immigrant" in the summary it says an "alien" in active service of the United States armed forces. The summary does not say illegal alien.

I love the way people blame the left, as if it were the left's huge corporations that hire these illegals so they can have kids here.

Tyson foods, owned by democrats you think? McCain, Reagan, Bush....amnesty.

What Do These "Republicans" All Have in Common?

Jorge Boosh, Phil Gramm, Pete Domenici, Zell Miller, Jim Bunning

Sen. Phil Gramm's wife was on the Board of Iowa Beef Packers

He is married to Dr. Wendy Lee Gramm, former chairman of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission under Presidents Reagan and Bush. And she is on the Board of Directors of one of the largest employers of illegal aliens in America - Iowa Beef Packers.!!!!!

More....Sen. Phil Gramm (Republican - Texas), Sen. Pete Domenici (Republican - New Mexico), Sen. Zell Miller (Republican - Georgia), and Sen. Jim Bunning (Republican - Kentucky), 2003 all in one photo in Mexico City as they push for a "guest worker" program designed to bring millions more Mexicans into the United States.

Yes the left are definitely guilty of trying to make sure illegals that are sucked here by the rights companies, are somewhat given a human life.

No one can claim “their side” is innocent, because both sides are in bed with greedy corporations.

While that might be true, you cannot argue that the Right hasn't had their hand in this since the beginning. All facts point to the Repubs pandering the most, Reagan, Bush and just as recent as McCain want amnesty.

You can yell and mask the profanity filter all you want, but that doesn't change the facts.

There is lots of blame to go around with both political parties
