GOP Senators Push to End Birthright Citizenship - Newsweek (http://www.newsweek.com/spectrum/2010/08/04/gop-senators-push-to-end-birthright-citizenship.html - broken link)

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.

I don't see where they told them to drop dead.

But, the 14th amendment isn't going anywhere. Election politics, dead issue come December.

Yeah I agree, no chance of them ever doing anything about this. It's all just playing politics.

Actually my hispanic husband kinda agrees with this. Saying Anchor babies are a problem and that we need to address this.

Obama is losing hispanic support also. So they are going some where.

This is such a ridiculous non-issue!

A UC Berkeley study found that 88,000, LEGAL residents with native born children were deported over an 10 year period, the vast majority of whom were convicted of minor criminal offenses.

Report criticizes increased deportation of legal immigrant parents - Los Angeles Times

Over roughly the same period of time 100,000 illegal parents of minor child U.S. citizens were deported many of whom took their children with them.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/14/us/14immig.html

In short, there is NOTHING preventing the removal of illegal parents from the U.S. so the anchor baby issue is a smokescreen just like most of the rest of this hysterical rhetoric.

They will never do it for one simple reason. Many highly skilled Asian immigrants in science/technology would be deterred from coming to the United States. If you don't think that this is one of the biggest perks for them coming to our country to work, think again.

Obama was going to have a little trouble regaining the Hispanic vote since he hadn't done much on immigration, but now it seems Arizona just gave him the Hispanic vote as a gift.

Obama is losing the support of Hispanics. Dont assume that majority of hispanics supports illegals being here

Obama once had the support of 82% of hispanics its now down to 54 and it keeps dropping

Blacks and Whites Continue to Differ Sharply on Obama

millions of hispanics have roots in this country going back centuries, and don't care for anchor babies either.

The latest telephone poll taken by the California Governor’s office asked whether people who live in California think illegal immigration is a serious problem:

29% responded, “Yes, it is a serious problem.”

71% responded, “No es una problema seriosa.”


WTH!
