Boot the illegals, put the kids up for adoption with legal families. Illegal behavior should not be rewarded.

If the parents don't like it, too damn bad , they should not have committed the crime in the first place.

The height of hypocrisy is Mexico complaining about our immigration law. Read theirs, their immigration requirements are much more stringent than ours.

You people sound like total racists, if the kids are born here they are American citizens, and for the idiot that commented back in Mexico believe this; all of the illegal people are not just Mexican in California. I know this for a fact that there are others out there in the same situation not of Mexican heritage. Is the illegal immigrant situation out of control, yes it is but they are the very same people that will do the work that many of you would not even touch. Maybe now with the economy the way it is everyone wants their jobs but prior to the economy no one wanted to clean, wash dishes, cut grass, pick up trash, so while they maybe here on our dime they certainly are willing to do whatever it takes to make a better life with something no one here ever wanted to do since everyone seems to think their jobs are below normal standards.
WOW is all I can say to most of you!!!!!!!!!
wow! what an idiota!

amend section 1401, section a to reflect the legal fact: born of parents from mexico who, if they had been in obedience to american law, would not have been here when the anchor baby was born; hence, no american citizenship.

deport 'em all, today

Given the current climate (a term some ultra liberal supreme court judge candidates are fond of) of terror threats, Mexican gang violence, and the burden illegals place on our already bankrupted state governments, maybe we need to repeal the 14th ammendment, or revise it so at least one parent has to be a citizen of this country. By the way, if your parents are German citizens, it doesn't matter where they reside when you are born, you are a German citizen. Same should go for Mexico. We are a nation of laws. We cannot allow outsiders to routinely break our laws. They have to immigrate legally. Remember the ethnic cleansing that occurred in Europe in the 80s because illegal Muslims overburdened the systems and institutions of their host country? We cannot let America get to that point. I agree with Mr. Hunter.

I was conceived and born in New York by undocumented parents in the 80s. They were hard workers like everyone else here and earned everything they had. I am now serving MY country by being a soldier, been to wars and give my spear time to kids with special needs. Deport me please because if I am not American enough. This is the problem with why this country is in the state it is in; people like me are the reason America is going broke. If I was deported none of this would have happened. I understand the reason why people are so passionate about the country; however we need to refocus that passion for country on logics and reason instead of blame and hate. With that being said, I would say that not everyone abuses the system and like my parents (mom a retired school teacher) try to, or have made this country better. There are however, people who use and abuse this and may other systems in this great country of loopholes. What we need is reform, not radicalism.

Thank you for your service. You obviously were raised right, although I do wish your parents had become citizens, offering them the rights and protections as well as the responsibilities of citizenship.

I have to ask you, though, what kind of "reform" would you suggest? Do you think this country can afford to allow a mass, uncontrolled migration of unskilled labor from Mexico, Guatemala, Somalia, etc.? Why is it considered "radical" to enforce our Federal laws, which are actually quite modest in severity compared to the ones from the countries that people are migrating from? I think there is a lot of "radicalism" coming from the pro-immigration groups as well, and demanding the rights of citizenry without the responsibilities is what is misguided, contrary to what Mr. Obama may spin.

I thank you so much for serving our country, but what is wrong here is all these illegals from Mexico and etc that come here and get free this and free that. people like you and me, pay for this, when I have family members in need of help, and they cannot get any. there is something wrong with this picture, and it angers me to end. it's just not right. there are way too many in our country, and look at what has become of her.

Why, is it that there are always people, no matter the crime, have to buck the system. No death penality, no life sentences for rape, no eye for an eye. I am so sick of this issue, we as Citizens (legal)of the USA cannot afford anymore to allow the immigration of legal or illegal immigrants. If a canadian comes across the border and needs welfare, we as a nation cannot afford it any longer. So everyone needs to step back and realize that for a time we need to shut down all immigration, until we as a nation can get back on our feet, or in a few years we will all be speaking chinese.

I agree so do not bring them over here!! That would just be too easy though, they know they will get benefits if they can quiclky get over here. I also want to know the issue, if they did not conceive over here, does that make the baby illegal? There are too many dumb questions, the parents know they are doing wrong coming across the border illegally, so they are commiting a crime, by bringing a baby that should have been born in Mexico, or Canada.

I love it when anything negative is said about a minority, and it is immediately racism, get a life brother. This is just a case of America for at least a short time looking out for itself, and when it is back to the strong nation it was, it will allow the strings to loosen again as usual, when the Democrats get back in office.

This is a tricky one but I ned to raise the question that if the parents are in this country illegally and they have children then how does it make the child a "legal American citizen". Just because one is born on American soil does not neccessarily mean they are legally a citizen especially if the parents were here illegally in the first place. I realize that it is not the fault of the child that his parents are here illegally but it raises alot of questions. Is it right to deport the parents and take their child away from them too? Then who's problem does that child become? As American citizens our values have always dictated that it is not right for a child to grow up without his or her parents. I am not taking either side on this issue but as mentioned it does raise alot of questions. The only thing that I will say is that the problem of illegals in this country has to be addressed and has to be stopped. That is the plain simple reality. As a legal citizen who serves my country I have the right to that opinion. Stop being blind and look around you. It is a big time problem!!!
This problem is easily cured if we had a congress with some 'nads:

Please refer yourself to the US Code, which brings to life section one of the 14th Amendment: Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter III, Part One, Section 1401, clause A.

"(a) a person born in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof;"

Amend it: "a person born in the United States, of at least one parent legally residing in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof;"

All others should derive their citizenship from the country of their parent's citizenship, just like the law applied to me when I was born in Germany, the son of an
American GI.

fair is fair.

Now, no, now letís not bring that pesky Constitution and Bill of Rights into this argument. After all wasnít it the last a-s-s clown that said it was just a g-d piece of paper. The current congress under the leadership (or lack thereof) the current a-s-s clown will never do anything to support the Constitution and our Bill of Rights. You just watch, bummer-boy will want amnesty for all and want to open up the border.

I agree entirely with your sentiment, but I will take this opportunity to debunk that Bush ever said that, although liberal pundits and the Obama loving media, who are NOTHING like Rush & Beck (wink, wink) spread the lie gleefully.

How is it okay to conceive the child in Mexico or where ever the parents are from,illegally cross the border and then have the baby where it can claim US citizenship?
Wasn't the law crafted to mean that a child conceived and born here in the US was granted US citizenship?
Just like welfare rule about the number of children and benefits has been twisted to mean have as manay as posible,the anchor baby rule has been twisted to be something other than a good idea.

Change the law. Make ours the same as Mexico's. If I go to Mexico and have a child, that child is an American citizen not a Mexican citizen.
