Support ‘Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011’ To End Citizenship for the Children of Illegal Aliens

Posted: May 14, 2011 in Uncategorized

In order to deal with the illegal alien problem (12 to 20 million illegal aliens) we need to stop giving the illegals so many benefits, such as free education, housing, welfare, Medicaid, and birthright citizenship for their children. Currently, the USA is one of the few first world countries to grant birthright citizenship to the children of illegal aliens. This fact makes it hard for us to deal with the illegal alien problem as liberals whine about deporting illegal aliens who have children who are American citizens.


Once an illegal alien has a child born in America, she can access Medicaid and other federal and state benefits through the child. Of course, we are foolish enough to provide free public education to illegal aliens, but that’s a subject for another discussion. Below is information about this issue and two ways to contact your politicians about this issue. Please sign at least one of them! Thank you.


Bill would eliminate automatic birthright citizenship for anchor babies!
The Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011, by Rep. Steve King (R-IA), would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to  eliminate the award of automatic citizenship to all babies born in the  United States. HR 140 would stipulate that at least one parent  must be a citizen or legal permanent resident for the child to receive  automatic citizenship.

Nearly  every other country, including all members of the European Union,  requires that at least one parent be a citizen or permanent resident for  a newborn to automatically become a citizen. Current U.S. policy  results in over 300,000 additional citizens from anchor babies each  year.

Congressional Petition to End Birthright Citizenship…
Whereas, this nation is overrun with uncounted illegal aliens, estimated to be forty million or more, about whom our government knows nothing (nationality, criminal record, diseases, etc…,) and

Whereas, among this population, illegal alien women, presumably from Mexico, are filling our hospital maternity wards as they give birth to an astounding 350-400,000 babies annually, at taxpayers’ expense, due to a gross misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, and

Whereas, Sen. Jacob M. Howard, an author of the 14th Amendment, stated, in 1868, that “This [bill] will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners …”, and

Whereas, under the misapplication of the 14th Amendment, once an illegal alien baby is born, it becomes an instant citizen, entitled to the full range of government welfare services … for life, while the mother, although here illegally, is never deported because of her status as a parent of the new citizen, and

Whereas, the cost of anchor babies, in just Los Angeles county, now exceeds one half billion per year — with the total costs of illegal aliens in Los Angeles pegged at $1.6 billion, and

Whereas, if this misinterpretation of our Constitution is not remedied quickly, the American people could soon become a minority in their own country,

Therefore, we, the undersigned citizens demand that the Congress immediately pass H.R.140, the Birthright Citizenship Act which stipulates that, at a minimum, one parent of any child, born on U.S. soil, has to be a U.S citizen in order for the child to be granted citizenship.   


Birthright Citizenship

The United States currently grants automatic U.S. citizenship to almost all children born in the United States, regardless of whether the parents are U.S. citizens, legal residents, temporary visitors, or illegal aliens, Illegal-Immigration-Ruling Dec-07 in the United States. Some 380,000 children are born in the United States each year to illegal-alien mothers, according to U.S. Census data. The only exceptions to this automatic granting of citizenship are the children of foreign diplomats stationed in the United States, whose citizenship at birth is governed by international treaty.

“Anchor Babies”
The children born in the United States to illegal-alien mothers are often referred to as “anchor babies.” Under current practice, these children are U.S. citizens at birth, simply because they were born on U.S. soil. They are called anchor babies because, as U.S. citizens, they become eligible to sponsor for legal immigration most of their relatives, including their illegal-alien mothers, when they turn 21 years of age, thus becoming the U.S. “anchor” for an extended immigrant family.

While there is no formal policy that forbids DHS from deporting the illegal-alien parents of children born in the U.S., they rarely are actually deported. In some cases, immigration judges make exceptions for the parents on the basis of their U.S.-born children and grant the parents legal status. In many cases, though, immigration officials choose not to initiate removal proceedings against illegal aliens with U.S.-born children, so they simply remain here illegally.

Thus, the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens not only represent additional U.S. population growth, but act as ‘anchors’ to eventually pull a large number of extended family members into the country legally. In fact, an entire industry has built up around the U.S. system of birthright citizenship. Thousands of pregnant women who are about to deliver come to the United States each year from countries as far away as South Korea and as near as Mexico so that they can give birth on U.S. soil. Some come legally as temporary visitors; others enter illegally. Once the child is born, they get a U.S. birth certificate and passport for the child, and their future link to this country is established and irreversible.
