    I don't like the idea of amending over this. If someone is born here they deserve to be an American. What need to be fixed is simply how we deal with border security and immigration. We don't need to fix the system, we just need to address those who take advantage of it...

    Well, my parents were legal resident aliens. They were in the country about 1-2 years before I was born. :shrug:

    If it's a shot at illegal immigration in general; I know a couple of people who's parents were illegal yet they're perfectly fine citizens.

    i think the problem they are targeting is people "using" their children in an effort to gain some sort of citizenship for themselves. IMO they need to go through the proper channels before having the kid.

    none of that running across the border to shit a kid out then saying "my child is an american, they have a right to be here! and you cant seperated me from them so i should be able to stay too!" BS.

    anchor babies are a huge problem and something has to be done, but anytime they ammend our constitution it makes me cringe a little

    I don't agree with changing the amendment. That is just a shitty band-aid for a big problem. Address it at the source. Secure the god damn boarders, enforce your immigration laws, and stop giving free handouts to those who do not pay into the system.

    3-peat. to fan the fire, apparently illegals get more than medical benefits, they can even get food stamps (gf is a county worker).

    maybe they should give them "temporary citizenship" status. say if you dont graduate high school or get a felony before you're 18, then your citizenship will be revoked and therefore make you an illegal.

    that gives them a chance to prove themselves and weed out the thieves, bums and those who give nothing to society.

    its another fix nothing but we'll make it look like we did deal.

    just like health insurance.


    fix the goddamn problem at the source, worry about the rest later.
    if you have a water leak, putting towels and buckets down will only do so much. eventually, you'll have to repair the fucking leak.

    This is simple political deflection and appeasement. They don't want to blow their political capital this close to election season by pushing for the one thing that will actually do good which has been mentioned. They figure if they dont have the horsepower to get the fence built then they will do something just to bandy it about amongst the people. "See look! We got rid of the anchor babies!! Vote for me" And the worst part about it is most people will accept it, happy that they did something. Our country is full of people who firmly believe in doing for the sake of doing.

    But the last election has shown us that a helluva lot of Americans support the change for the sake of change ideology a great deal. The last election boils down to this; they had their chance now lets kick them all out and go the other way. No one asked why, no one asked for a detailed plan it was all honey being pumped into our ears. And to many Americans are so conditioned by the bullshit on television and internet that they buy into it all. Look at WWII shit had to get done and it did. Why? Because they put political capital aside for the moment and tackled the immediate issue, which was Japan and Hitler. But most people assume that government is so bloated and cumbersome that something as simple as a multilayer fence is impossible to build. It has nothing to do with the difficulty of the work it has to do with votes. We talk about a fence, a simple fence being built and we are all racist bigots. Which steers people away from speaking out that this hasn't been done despite the fact they know its the right thing to do because most everyone wants to be liked.

    Mini guns every 200 yards. Don't even have to pay people to man them, there will be thousands of volunteers. They try to cross, they get mowed. Their friends try to retrieve the body, their friends get mowed. Cat tries to cross, cat gets mowed. Just make a 500 yard "every fucking thing that enters this area is fucking dead" zone.

    But no. God forbid we mow down people who are invading our country. That isn't PC.

    i dont understand how people see this as a problem. its thanks to the latin population that our median age in this country is staying so low because every other demographic in america arent having babies other than latin americans.

    I have no problem with legal immigration. First secure our southern border then reform the laws. I da have a problem with people getting a free pass when they break our laws. Espically when it's for the sole express purpose of politicians get more people to vote for them. Expand your political base by any means nesicary??? WTF

    OH come on!

    This is an all time low blow. Anchor babies? are you freaking kidding me?

    Even if a baby is born they still can't do anything for the parents! They will grow up to pay taxes,get a job and live like everyone else.

    As a person who experienced some of it. IT'S NOT THE WAY IT WORKS!
    Parent's don't just come here to "drop and leave"


    This government is really changing all right. Now i get the feeling even I could make wiser decisions in the white house.....and that's sad

    I've felt that way since Clinton. I wouldn't have gotten caught.
