    They’ll have to change the Constitution to deny citizenship to children born here if their parents are illegal aliens.

    Those already born when the change takes effect will not lose citizenship. (Ex-post-facto laws are illegal)

    A reference to a series of movies loosely based on Steven King’s novel. And a classic Twilight Zone episode.

    Well, of course, if they can muster the votes to change the part of the Constitution about the definition of citizenship, they could probably throw out that pesky “ex post facto” thing at the same time. Also those nuisancesome freedoms of speech, press, religion, and assembly.

    This isn’t about legalizing illegal immigration. This is about natural born US citizens and the efforts of others to deny their citizenship.

    The usual justification is that undocumented immigrants are cynically producing children for the sole purpose of having “anchor babies.” Because bleeding heart liberals don’t want to a) separate families or b) send US citizens who don’t speak their parents’ home country language into exile.

    And therefore, say the kind of people who hate undocumented immigrants who don’t look or talk like them, if we render these children non-citizens, that loophole will be closed. If children who don’t speak Spanish or Somali or Hmong didn’t want to be exiled to a country where that’s the main language, they should have been born to US citizens!

    As you might guess, I’m not too keen on this.

    @simpsonfan2 – READ the Constitutional amendment, moron; the section refers to NEGROS born in the US of imported SLAVES before and during the Civil War! NOT Illegal Aliens SINCE the Civil War! Too many of you are Constitutional Twits that talk with ZERO knowledge of the Constitution!

    Most of our European ancestors came and stayed “illegally” – ie., without the permission of the inhabitants. But our law says that if you are born here, you’re a citizen. Deal with it.

    @SkepticCal

    Yeah, and “Politically Correct” is the catchall phrase the right wing uses to attack anything it doesn’t like. That and “reverse racism,” which is that odd twist of fate when the law does something to a white guy that it usually does to blacks or hispanics.

    @websterphreaky

    I refer to any future amendment. No automatic citizenship to babies born to illegal aliens.

    That’s rich — a semi-literate berating OTHER people for not reading. Please get someone to read the following to you R-E-A-L   S-L-O-W-L-Y:
     
    “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 the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” —14th Amendment US Constitution
