Let me guess your husband is cuban right? So you feel that gives you the ability to hide behind posting he is Hispanic. Cuban Spanish are totally different from the rest of the Latino population. I remember a lot of your post and I have known a few Cubans from Florida. They are part of the old Nixon southern strategy. Especially the ones that look more white than Spanish. I don't think your husband can speak for Mexican Americans no more than I can speak for Haitians.

Yes, anyone within our borders are subject to the jurisdiction of US.

I don't know why the GOP is opting for the short term gain of scared white voters giving them the House back for the long-term sacrifice of hispanics for an entire generation. Not a good strategy IMO.

What would you rather see? Politicians doing what's best for the country by ending a massive financial burden at the risk of losing votes or politicians ignoring what's best for the country to pander for votes?


The children of illegal aliens (anchor babies) have bankrupted the state of California

I find it funny that Senator John McCain who wasn't even born in the US is considering repealing the 14th. Amendment!
By the way the 14th. Amendment also gave citizenship to blacks!

Its Citizenship Clause provides a broad definition of citizenship that overruled the decision in Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857), which held that blacks could not be citizens of the United States.

I guess we will be deporting blacks and hispanics then!

I find it funnier that you would even make this weak attempt at this asinie non-point.


Quote:
The requirements for citizenship, and its very definition in American statute law, have changed since the Constitution was ratified in 1788. Congress first recognized the citizenship of children born to U.S. parents overseas on March 26, 1790, stating that "the children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.
Natural born citizen of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Nothing like bringing up an issue that was resolved in 1790 to try to make some kind of weak political statement. Moonbattery never ceases to amaze me.

Some Cubans say that illegal immigrants should be send back home. Easy for them to say, because they came here mostly illegally, but were granted green cards because of the "wet foot, dry foot" policy due to political reasons.
