Trump Hopes To Unanchor “Anchor Babies”

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 31, 2018

THE 14TH AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION SAYS ANY CHILD BORN IN THE UNITED STATES IS A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES. IMMIGRANTS – LEGAL AND ILLEGAL – HAVE TAKEN ADVANTAGE AND HAD THEIR BABIES IN AMERICA. WHEN THEY REACH THE AGE OF MAJORITY THEY ARE ALLOWED TO BRING FAMILY MEMBERS INTO THE COUNTRY WHO THEN QUALIFY TO BECOME CITIZENS. SOME CALL THEM “ANCHOR BABIES.”         PRESIDENT TRUMP WANTS TO END THE PRACTICE AS A WAY OF DETERRING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. HE WILL HAVE A MASSIVE FIGHT ON HIS HANDS, ESPECIALLY FROM DEMOCRATS WHOSE STRATEGY IS TO IMPORT AS MANY ALIENS AS POSSIBLE, HOPING THEY WILL BECOME FUTURE VOTERS FOR THEIR PARTY AND ITS CANDIDATES.

THE LARGE NUMBER OF CONSERVATIVE JUDGES NAMED TO FEDERAL COURTS OFFER HOPE THAT THE PRESIDENT WILL PREVAIL, ESPECIALLY WHEN A CASE GETS TO THE SUPREME COURT, BUT IT’S ANYONE’S GUESS. WHAT IS NOT A GUESS IS THAT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION MUST BE CURTAILED AND DOING AWAY WITH THE MISINTERPRETATION OF THE 14TH AMENDMENT – WHICH WAS PASSED AFTER RECONSTRUCTION TO GUARANTEE EQUAL RIGHTS TO U.S. CITIZENS – IS ESSENTIAL. PREDICTABLY, THE MEDIA AND THE DEMOCRATS WILL JOIN FORCES TO TRY TO THWART THE PRESIDENT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
