Arizona Says No to Anchor Babies

Arizona is boldly going where other states and our federal government fear to go.
After tackling the problem of illegal immigration with the passage of SB 1070, Arizona is now saying no to “anchor babies” — children born in the United States who acquire automatic citizenship despite their parents being not just non-citizens but illegal aliens.

Meanwhile, Nick Allen of the UK Telegraph reports on June 15, 2010, that Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce (R) will introduce a bill later this year to bar anchor babies from getting American birth certificates. Pearce is one of the politicians who had worked for Arizona’s passage of its new immigration law, SB 1070.

Under the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution any child born in America has an automatic right to citizenship regardless of their parents’ legal status. But the 14th Amendment was drafted in order to secure the citizenship and Constitutional rights of freed slaves and their children. Pearce said that the authors of the 14th Amendment in 1868 never anticipated the “deluge” of anchor babies of our time. He called anchor babies getting automatic US citizenship “the most irrational and self-defeating provision you could have. It’s illegal to enter the United States and yet we are going to create the greatest inducement to breaking our law, and entering illegally, and that’s making your baby a citizen.”
Both Governor Brewer and Senator Pearce maintain, with considerable evidence, that “anchor babies” are used by illegal immigrants to stay in the country. More than that, when the “anchor babies” become adults, they can sponsor their parents for legal permanent residency. After six years of permanent residency, the parents then qualify for U.S. citizenship. Through the provision of “chain migration,” the parents in turn then apply for their blood relatives to immigrate to the United States. Those individuals, when they obtain U.S. citizenship, in turn apply for their blood relatives…….in an unending chain of (legal) immigrants.
In just one year, 2008, an estimated four million “anchor babies” were born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents.
Opponents of the proposed bill say it is contrary to the Constitution and the American spirit. The right of Arizona to to deny automatic US citizenship to anchor babies could ultimately end up in the Supreme Court.

This is a travesty! What part of “ILLEGAL” do some fail to understand. Just like the usurper sleeping in our White House, if you are not a citizen you have no “rights” to stay here. Laws are here for situations like this. Who will enforce the law, both civil and Constitutional? Will we have to form Militias and do the job ourselves? What has happened to our America? Are we truly under the control of a Communist coup out to destroy our once Great Country. Join the fight to defeat the Evil!

old1,
We’re working on it…
Most of us do believe the usurper in the White House is either a Commy or a Radical Muslim. Either way, we believe he’s out to destroy this country. Our goal is to take it back in November and then boot the idiot out in 2012…We need all the people we can get to accomplish the feat.
Don’t give up hope….

Since the Constitution gives anchor babies the right to citizenship, I do not see any way for Arizona to pull this off. The federal government will overrule the decision.

As they used to say, “So sue me!” Let it go all the way to the Supreme Court and make ’em decide whether this is Constitutional or not.

My husband delivered babies for years, and he loved it. He had to quit about 12 years ago because he did not make enough from it to cover the malpractice costs of delivering Medicaid babies to Mexicans. They have babies every 10 months or so. There is a major problem here.

Doc’ Wife and anon,
I feel the same way. I don’t want them here at all, none of them. If they can’t enter our country legally then shoot them. I also think we should amend the Constitution to get rid of the anchor babies, but until we do we’re stuck with them. We could make it illegal for pregnant women to enter the country and we could also make it a law that if you are an illegal then your new born is also an illegal. There are ways to get around the Constitution.

Immigration conundrum – under current law if a foreigner gives birth on an airplane while flying over our Great Old US of A is the alien new born an American Citizen? Can they pretend to be President like Barry after they reach 35 if they come to America when they are 21. We just got to tie up these loose ends.

Ron Baby, read the Constitution! States have the right to determine “citizen” not he feds. The 14th dealt with freed slaves not Rio Grand swimmers.

Old1—Hi, I’ve been over the Constitution probably just as long as you if you’re truly an old 1 I gave lectures on it and Collegiate interpretations on the different amendments…. Not you, me , or any state has the right to offer any law to the citizens that contradicts the Constitution. States rights do not superceed the Constitution. The 14th Amendment: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge… Read more »

The Tea Bag Party are just “haters not debaters” or as others have dubbed them “screamers not dreamers”, with their failed attempts at stopping Healthcare reform, they say they respect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence but they do not mind passing laws, through weak Governors (no one voted for this crazy) who only cares about getting elected Governor, on the backs of undocumented workers, that will not pass Constitution muster. Brewer signed into law; 1. S.B. 1070, 2. No permit conceal weapons law, 3. The famous Birthers law, 4. Banning Ethic studies law, 5.… Read more »

Damn, dude, did a TEA Partier knock down your sand castle when you were a kid? Would you like illegal aliens to come into you neighborhood every day, steal stuff, rape the occasional wife or daughter, clog up your doctor’s office without paying, pay no taxes but send all the money they earn back home, and demand you speak Spanish because they won’t learn English? If you do (or had a TEA Partier demolish your sand castle), I’m sorry, please go right ahead with your rant. Otherwise, you’re not making a good argument except if your intent is just to… Read more »

Montana, Boy you got a lot of hate. Normally I do not respond to people so full of hate but I’ll give you a moment of truth. The truth is simple–You are an individual who believes the rich owe you something. You think it’s alright for the government to steal money from the rich and give it to a no-account imbecile like you. I’m sure you’re on welfare or your mommy was. I don’t mind your anger and I doubt anyone of the regulars on this blog care what you think. Liberals usually think with their rectum rather than using… Read more »

Eo,
Yes. I need my meds—This guy, Montana, really needs someone to kick his ass out of the United States.
