Actually the point is, that yes he is 18, but he was born here ILLEGALY.<quoted text>
The point here is, he IS 18, the legal right make this decision resides with him, not you or me. If he can make his own wayt in the world on this side of our border with Mexico, I say let him do it. As for him being born illegally, choose your words a bit better, or justify your comment, please. I am aware of no laws regarding the birthing of children that were broken during his birth; either by him or his mother. The fact that his parents broke the law years before his birth does not confer any guilt upon him.
Contextually wrong or not, the current "interpretation" of the 14th Amendment holds that the man is a US citizen. There being no other reasonable and lawful response to the situation, I say more power to him.
The Mexican government and the Mexican people have been really unhelpful neighbors in this whole illegal alien invasion issue for the last several decades. That is not appropriately laid at this young man's feet.
Why do you have a difficult time with this?
His parents were illegal, had the baby for free paid by you and me and now gets a FREE education also at taxpayer expense. Is that right? No....it's not.
The money that U.S. taxpayers pay should be going to U.S. citizens, not because of a manipulation of the 14th Amendment.....by some slick lawyers.
The 14th Amendment was for the slaves. Period. Not for illegal aliens from any country.
Have you actually read it?
In your view, it is OK to break a law but enforce another one?
You seem to be ok with breaking the law of entering the United States illegaly, then you want to enforce the law of the 14th amendment after the fact?
Doesn't make any sense.
The law is the law........and just because the kid is 18 NOW, doesn't change anything....just means his parents broke the law 18 years ago.
