please point out where in the Constitution there are "anchor baby' i dont see it.

I see born on us soil = US citizens


and just because an illegal alien parent(s) has a baby here, doesn't mean that the illegal alien parent(s) gets an automatic pass to stay here with their child. They and their child will get deported to their home country as normal.

So illegal aliens who live here for years (without being caught), are still under the jurisdiction of their home country?

Try and tell that to that illegal alien

We were promised last time "this is a one time, and one time only deal, never to happen again". Or we would have fought it harder than we did. We were promised the laws incorporated into the 1986 bill would be enforced, so it would not happen again.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, and I'm a complete idiot!

The 14th Amendment doesn't have to say anything about "anchor babies". The writers of that amendment never intended for them to be instant citizens. The Supreme Court should take another look at it and see where they have erred in their judgement.

I don't care how many years and illegal alien has been here their homeland has supreme jurisprudice over them, not us. These parents of illegal aliens are sure whining about "family separation" though when ever they get caught and deported, don't they? They can take their instant citizen children back to their homeland. Mexico offers dual citizenship.

Also true.

But also something that nobody on this thread appears to have done.

Next question?

You must not know much American history. Because often, yes, illegal aliens are immigrants.

Nope.

Everybody here who is not a foreign diplomat or hostile army is subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.

So sayeth the supreme Court.

Because of the misuse of the Constitution and deliberate attempts to "reread" the original intentions of the Constitution... the spirit of the Constitution (as anyone with half a brain will realize) is that Americans who give birth to Americans are by de facto American citizens... however "liberal" interpretations have said that anyone born on US soil is an American... thus illegals who trek over onto "US soil" and give birth basically "anchors" their family into the US... why anchoring? Because their kids could grow up (at this point they are US citizens) and "sponsor" their illegal parents in the US so they can all stay in the US... however, the truth is, many of these "American" children rarely ever sponsor their parents in the US as it is "costly" and so they all rely on "Amnesty" which grants American citizenship... ironic since if you do it legally, it could cost you tens of thousands of dollars and years of waiting... do it illegally and you get a "Welcome to America"... which one do you think we should encourage? Legal or illegal?
