You're right. Now why can't our elected representatives have that same level of common sense? I see Obama told El Salvadors president that he plans to legalize their illegal aliens in this country. Maybe he likes MS13 and all their illegitimate offspring so much he wants them to have automatic citizenship. This insane interpretation of our 14th ammendment needs to be clarified and any politician who defends the current interpretation needs to be voted out of office.

The Chinese babies wouldn't be illegal b/c the current law is if you're born in the States your an American.

Also, if you're middle class you should understand that it is the rich in America that are behind this mess. They'll just keep taxing the middle class to pay it.

If birthright citizenship is what the 14th amendment meant, i'd agree, but no way was any part of it written with the intention to allow 3rd world immigrant's to come here, drop an anchor and allowed to become a US citizen. And if the Congress and House don't get it together as now, this country will not be America, just another poor melting pot of ignorant leeches.

To Ronnie,

The funny thing is that hospitals make money off Chinese immigrants who pay for maternity wards and they lose money to illegal Hispanic medical bills.

Considering how much our health care will cost due to obesity by citizens or non-citizens will hint at even more troubled times for our health institutions.

Unless major reforms occur, it looks gloomy. America has to choose sides. You can't please everyone. Everyone wants too much and pays too little.

Considering how much corruption occurs in medicare and medicaid, Congressman will most likely not resolve this issue as well.

Ronnie, this is happening because our government has failed the American people. We need to unite and hold rallys just like the illegals are doing. This illegals are causing our country many problems and our government turns the other way. Our government caters to illegals and could care less about the American people.
We need to stand together and fight this injustice it is time to put an end to it.

Americans have lost consciousness about this. They don't give a crap. It's going to blow up someday, and people like me and other's that are paying close attention will be on the front line. There are activist's on this forum too. Signing petitions and writing letters to our Legislators, But Politicians only want to pander to Hispanics for votes and cheap labor, but yes, we need to rise up and protest the hell out of the Government until someone see's the folly of this mistake.America is going down the toilet.

are they finally getting the picture? birthright citizenship is bullshit.

where's the logic of granting citizenship to whomever comes over?

there is no limit to the numbers. does that make sense at all?

so, if 100+ million foreigners come over and get babies, they could essentially take over our country without a fight?

think about it.. the baby, the parents... that's 3 x 100 million = 300 million new citizens?
