It is time to repeal the 14th amendment. For those of you unaware what that is ....shame on you! Turn off the propaganda channels and educate yourself!
No matter what you hear in the media... The 14th amendment is at the heart of OUR illegal immigration problem that we face today.
Have you ever heard the term "ANCHOR BABY". Well, the 14th amendment to the constitution is at the root of the problem. The Anchor Baby phenomenon is simply an abuse of our 14th Amendment which originally was designed to ensure that black Americans still recovering from slavery, were given the same rights as every other American. I think we can all agree that that time is well in the rear view mirror of America....100 years in the rear view!
What the 14th amendment actually states, among other things, that all persons born in the United States are considered citizens and are subject to all the privileges and responsibilities that such citizenship entails. Why should children born in the US to undocumented immigrants be considered citizens simply by virtue of their birth?
Once the child is born on American soil, he or she instantly attains U.S. citizenship. Not only that, but the Illegal parents are allowed to stay and since they have no income the baby is eligible for welfare, WIC and food stamps. Guess who pays for that? You guessed it...you and me...the already overburdened taxpayer struggling just to make ends meet in this economy.
There are an estimated 350,000 of these Anchor Babies born in the U.S. every year....that's almost a thousand a day...the equivalent of 4 completely packed jumbo jets flying into the US every damn day. Forget just focusing on border security...this would be the quickest easiest and CHEAPEST fix to the problem. It is estimated that these ILLEGALS consume over $120 billion annually in government services...that's right...$120 with a B behind it. Unbelievable yes...even for a screwed up government that thinks that our tax money grows on trees!
Once they are a US citizen we pay...forever and ever....and not just for them but their ILLEGAL parents as well. I for one am damn tired of standing in a grocery store line behind someone who can not even speak English and pulls out their government food stamp credit card and buys groceries that I can't even afford for my, what many might consider, middle class family. When will this madness end and who will stop it if not us and if not now, when?
Call your Congressman and Senator NOW and DEMAND that they repeal the birthright citizenship protection provided for by the Constitution’s 14th Amendment immediately!
