Losing a loved one at the hands of an illegal alien, especially ones with multiple convictions and deportations, hits people harder than government employees not being paid for a short period.
Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi are acting like school yard children who don’t like a class mate but we Americans are collateral damage in their game of one upsmanship.
Damn it, Americans are dying due to a porous border. Americans and people entering illegally experience atrocities.
This has been going on for decades but it took President Trump and a partial government shutdown to get the needed attention.
A porous southern border is responsible for murder, rape, extortion, human trafficking, drug trafficking, sex trafficking, and political corruption in the United States and our neighbors in Mexico, Central and South America.
The government shutdown and 800,000 employees with delayed payroll is an insignificant inconvenience compared to those who lost a family member due to a porous, unsecured border.
We need to realign our priorities. MSNBC and CNN are doing a disservice to the American people by misleading viewers about the reality of this situation. ... See MoreSee Less
From Where Does the Concept of Anchor Babies are Citizens Come From?
In 1898 Supreme Court case, United States v. Wong Kim Ark, the court ruled that the children born to LEGAL immigrants in the United States were citizens. The Yale Law Journal pointed out the ridiculousness that the majority opinion was based on British feudal law.
This law stood for 84 years until 1982 when Justice Brennan invented “automatic citizenship for anyone born in the United States” when he slipped a footnote in a 5-4 Supreme Court decision, Plyler v. Doe, which asserted that “no plausible distinction” could be drawn “between resident aliens whose entry into the United Stated was lawful, and resident aliens whose entry was unlawful.”
Brennan’s authority for this position of no “plausible distinction” between the children of legal immigrants and illegal aliens was a 1912 book written by Clement L Bouve who was was NOT a judge, legislator, senator, elected official but was a man who wrote a book.
Brennan’s reference ignored more than a century of law on the Fourteenth Amendment but relied on an authors intent.
Americans are smugly informed that the Fourteenth Amendment confers US citizenship on anyone born in the United States. It does not. Brennan’s decision in 1982 changed that.
In 1993, Senator Harry Reid introduced a bill that would end citizenship for children of illegal aliens.
He explained “.... Is it any wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at tax payer expense in county-run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers.”
Appellate court judge Richard Posner wrote a concurring opinion in a 2003 case, where he asked Congress to rethink “awarding citizenship to everyone born in the United States.” Posner said Justice Brennan invented a constitutional right which was luring “illegal immigrants whose sole motive in immigration was to confer US citizenship on their as yet unborn children.”
He asked Congress to pass a law and “put an end to the nonsense.”
