It figures that Joe Baca (hispanic surname again) would oppose this.

Strange...SanBernardino had just become a Sanctuary City when I left.
Baca needs to be removed from office

Other than that, it's a good start.

It's quite a repetitive association don't you think?

This should have been proposed years ago. Our country simply can NOT continue to confer citizenship to the offspring of any foreigner who manages to breach our border security, or fly here on a tourist visa for the sole purpose of giving birth to a U.S. citizen. It’s utter insanity.

Jurisdiction- Noun: the right, power, or authority to administer justice by hearing and determining controversies.

You have many people coming to this country illegally," said Rep. Gary Miller, R-Brea, a co-sponsor of the legislation. "They come to this country and have babies. The children are citizens. The children are eligible to go to school. They receive food stamps and social programs. The American taxpayers are paying for it."

"Miller said he welcomes the U.S. Supreme Court intervening to settle the debate.
The amendment states, "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."

Miller said the words, "subject to the jurisdiction thereof," should not apply to children born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents.
"You can't tell me a person who is a citizen of any other country is subject to our jurisdiction. They're not," said Miller, whose district includes Chino and Chino Hills. "If their parents are from another country, they are a citizen of that country. They are not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States."

What Mr. Miller, a Foriener, Undocumented Alien, Illegal Alien, Illegal Immigrant, Undocumented Immigrant...ect, IS NOT subject to our jurisdiction? Oh Really.


What a dweeb.

Baca represents Illegals more than citizens and has openly admitted it at one of our Town Hall meetings

Funny, illegals don’t consider themselves “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” of the U.S. unless it involves citizenship for their children, or eligibility for tax-funded freebies. Otherwise, they feel no obligation to obey ANY of our laws. Remember, according to illegals and their apologists, our laws are flawed.

Needless to say: illegal aliens are criminals and need to be dealt with as such--------read that be deported upon pain of severe punishment. There mere presense here in the USA does make them subject to our jurisdiction.

As for Mr Miller wanting birthright citizenship rescinded for any future Anchor Babies--------I agree with him 100%
