It´s time to ´reimagine´ birthright citizenship
American Thinker, by Brian Lonergan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/11/2018 2:25:08 PM

One of the biggest challenges in the immigration debate today is that the American people are routinely given faulty "facts" or outright lies by the media and opportunistic politicians. The media-manufactured crisis over separating children from their illegal alien parents at the southern border is just the most recent example. The misrepresented photos, absurd comparisons of detention centers to concentration camps, and nonstop cable news demagoguery have served to confuse the public and advance the narrative of the open borders movement. Now comes a whopper: much of what the American public has been told about birthright citizenship is wrong. The

Based on two Supreme Court decisions (Wong Kim Ark and Wilkins v. Elk), 14th Amendment citizenship excludes the children of both illegal aliens (who do not have permission to be in the country) and tourists.

Leftist lawyers always tout reliance on legal precedents. Looks like they exist. Who will bring the first case?

The recent story of the lady who flew here from Africa to have her quadruplet anchor babies and stay in the NICU for months on the US taxpayer dime put me over the edge.

The Constitution does not say any person born here is a citizen. The 14th Amendment says "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."

An illegal alien or a temporary visitor on a tourist visa is not necessarily "subject to the jurisdiction thereof."

The law can thus easily be changed to exclude children of illegals and people on tourist visas.

The childish rantings of the left concerning the border crisis fool nobody but the emotion does serve to rile up the uneducated masses who can not see that even the United States can not afford to feed, clothe and educate these opportunists. Build the wall, return all illegals to their country of origin WITH their children and then we´ll talk. The Lefty Loons are soon going to discover that the attention they have drawn to this manufactured crisis is going to work against them.

It will be messy unraveling the mess of our Immigration Policy, but well worth it.

In the words of former Mexican Presidente Felipe Calderone, when asked how Mexico deals with illegal immigrants, he answered, ´We send back them!´

It is time for us to send back them!

I don’t think it is time to reimagine the issue. I think the law resending that ridiculous idea should go through the House of Representatives , the Senate, and be signed by the President in a single day.

The US immigrations bureaucracy has been a morass of corruption and incompetence for decades. Name changes have done nothing to clean the mess up. Becoming a legal immigrant costs a great deal of money, lawyers, fees, and knowing the right people. It can take years. I’ve known many, holders of legitimate green cards, who have undergone horrendous ordeals by abusive officials. No wonder some will sneak past the fence. The Mexicans who’ve done roofing, yard work, and other work for me have been honest and as hard-working as anybody could ask. The Brit engineer, the South African surgeon, the Zimbabwean landscaper, the Iranian professor, all have paid their way to be here, and make my country a better place. Each has horror stories of our esteemed immigrations thugs.

— before we build a wall, ship people back, or any of the “easy” solutions, we need to clean up ICE. And draw up reasonable expectations and fair rules for those who want to be Americans.

Former first lady Michelle Obama reportedly angered liberals and earned the mockery of conservatives by launching a “strictly nonpartisan” voter registration campaign where she and other “celebrities” will urge Americans to vote in the November 2018 midterm elections. The campaign, called “When We All Vote,” launches today. The initiative will feature Mrs. Obama in a series of public service announcements, rallies, and other live events across the country, Politico reported. The program has a budget of $8 million.

House Democrats revealed their new slogan for the upcoming 2018 elections, but whoever was behind it probably forgot to check that it’s identical to the one used by a used car dealership in Texas and a personal injury law firm in Florida. The motto, “For the People,” debuted at a private meeting with members Wednesday, according to Politico. Yet Democrats probably won’t like to know that their new message for American voters is the same used by some of the sleaziest businesses in the country, namely used car dealers and ambulance chasers.

President Obama is in South Africa for a speech, and somehow, in the speech he gave, he showed himself to be so clueless about that the ´strongman´ he warned about, that he never realized he described how he ran the U.S. for eight years. Here is what CNN reported: Obama warns against ´strongman politics´ in speech after Trump news conference. Former US President Barack Obama mounted a passionate defense of democracy and warned against the rise of "strongman politics," Obama criticized populist movements toward authoritarianism around the world and ridiculed the "utter loss of shame among political leaders" who lie.

Sen. Bill Nelson heads into his re-election bid this year with the backing of the Florida chapter of the International Association of Fire Fighters. Gov. Rick Scott, his Republican opponent, counters with the backing of 55 of his state’s 67 sheriffs and the endorsement of the Florida Police Chiefs Association, which publicly favored a Senate candidate for the first time ever last month. In a state familiar with disasters, whether from man or Mother Nature, public safety officials are prominent figures, so these endorsements could play significant roles. The two camps have traded barbs in recent weeks about who has

On Wednesday, Sanders said there "was some conversation" between Trump and Putin at their Monday summit about Russia´s request, "but there wasn’t a commitment made on behalf of the United States and the president will work with his team and we’ll let you know if there’s an announcement on that front."

The bill already has the backing of the majority of city lawmakers, and Pawar hopes to soon work with Mayor Rahm Emanuel to implement the pilot program, The Intercept reported. “Nearly 70 percent of Americans don’t have $1,000 in the bank for an emergency,” Pawar told the outlet. “UBI could be an incredible benefit for people who are working and are having

In doing so they also continue to ignore President Trump’s many accomplishments. When compared to Obama [and most presidents], President Trump’s efforts to shore up the economy are historic.

The Democratic former U.S. president did not name his Republican successor, Donald Trump, but the speech was among the most pointed comments he has made about politics since leaving office in January 2017.
