Author of Arizona immigration law wants to end birthright citizenship - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/20100521/pl_ynews/ynews_pl2192 - broken link)

"The author of Arizona's immigration law told constituents he wants to pass another measure to invalidate citizenship granted to the children of illegal aliens."

This man should run for President.

I will support it, if it were retroactive to 1776.

I thought you were a strong supporter of the constitution. So now you want to pick and choose which parts are good and which are bad in your opinion?

All R's sponsoring the Federal Bill.

Quote:
H.R. 1868: Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009 (GovTrack.us)
4/2/2009--Introduced.
Birthright Citizenship Act of 2009 - Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to consider a person born in the United States "subject to the jurisdiction" of the United States for citizenship at birth purposes if the person is born in the United States of parents, one of whom is: (1) a U.S. citizen or national; (2) a lawful permanent resident alien whose residence is in the United States; or (3) an alien performing active service in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Now what is wrong with this legislation, why no Democrat support?

Nothing is wrong with it. The dems are pandering to the hispanic vote.

Although, there are other countries in the world that do not recognize birthright citizenship unless the parents are already citizens this will likely never go very far, as constitutional challenges would be ready the instant it became law. More than anything else it is probably a statement that shows the dissatisfaction countless people feel about illegal immigration and the effect it is having on the country.

It sure doesn't make a whole lot of sense today....especially when you consider the way it gets abused today. At the time it was written , I'm sure it wasn't that much of a big deal to just allow it and then if the parents didn't want to stay in the U.S., they'd leave and the child would end up being a citizen of what ever country the parents were citizens of....it more or less made it an option the parents could consider if they wanted to use it. They could have never imaged how (with all the entitlements we have now) it would end getting abused like it has the last few decades.
