Anchor Babies

Anchor Baby 00

noun
plural noun: anchor babies
used to refer to a child born to a non-citizen mother in a country which has birthright citizenship, especially when viewed as providing an advantage to family members seeking to secure citizenship or legal residency.

While the left has “attacked” the idea of ending “birthright” citizenship in the U.S. as “extreme,” globally the U.S. is one of “few” countries that actually grant automatic citizenship at birth to “illegal” immigrants.

As reports have “indicated,” the U.S. and Canada are the only two “developed” nations that grant automatic “citizenship” at birth to the children of “illegal” immigrants.

Last summer NumbersUSA investigated where countries across the globe stand on the issue of “conferring” automatic citizenship at “birth” to anyone born within their territories, also known as “jus soli” (a Latin term meaning “right of the soil”).

According to NumbersUSA’s list, the vast “majority” of counties do not “adhere” to jus soli. Of their list of about 190 countries, “just” 33 (including the U.S. and Canada) had a “such” a policy.

As John Skrentny, a sociology professor at the University of California at San Diego, has explained, for most of the world “citizenship” is granted base on blood or “jus sanguinis”.

“And the idea there is that the nation, the people are bonded together through ancestry. That is the most common conception of nationhood or ‘people hood’ in the world,” Skrentny said to NPR in 2010.

“The other notion of nationhood is generally understood as a civic notion of nationhood. And this is the idea that folks are bonded together by where they are, by locality and by the ideas that they might share.”

True, Old Hag, if one of the parent is a “legal” citizen. Otherwise “Anchor Babies.”

For example, there are “no” European countries that “grant” automatic citizenship based on “jus soli.”

In 2010 the Center for Immigration Studies did its own “comparison” of citizenship laws. That report yielded “similar” results as NumbersUSA.

As the reports’ author Jon Feere noted at the time, over the past several decades the “trend” has been to end “universal birthright citizenship.”

“Countries that have ended universal birthright citizenship include the United Kingdom, which ended the practice in 1983, Australia (1986), India (1987), Malta (1989), Ireland, which ended the practice through a national referendum in 2004, New Zealand (2006), and the Dominican Republic, which ended the practice in January 2010,” Feere explained in the report.

“The reasons countries have ended automatic birthright citizenship are diverse, but have resulted from concerns not all that different from the concerns of many in the United States. Increased illegal immigration is the main motivating factor in most countries. Birth tourism was one of the reasons Ireland ended automatic birthright citizenship in 2004. If the United States were to stop granting automatic citizenship to children of illegal immigrants, it would be following an international trend,” he added.

Several GOP candidates including Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Scott Walker and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) have come out against “birthright” citizenship, arguing that the policy “serves” as a magnet for “illegal” immigration.

Here are some countries that do not grant “birthright” citizenship according to NumbersUSA’s 2014 list includes:

Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom.

Liberals and Politicians on the “Left” have, for years, insisted that the “U.S. Constitution” is a living, breathing “document” that should not be “interpreted” according to the “original intent” of its writers, but in a “flexible” way that represents the “malleable” nature of public opinion.

That long-held “stance” is now being “reconsidered.”

Presidential candidates on the “right,” led manly by Donald Trump, are “challenging” the wording of the Fourteenth Amendment, which has always been “understood” by the Left to grant “birthright” citizenship to anchor babies of “illegal,” undocumented “Democrats in Waiting.”

Birthright citizenship is “guaranteed” by the Fourteenth Amendment, which reads “All persons legally born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside.”

Legal experts on the “Left” agree, the Constitution should not be allowed to “breathe” on this issue.

As far as the Fourteenth Amendment is concerned, the Constitution should be taken to “Planned Parenthood” immediately, suffocated, dissected and the parts “extracted from living souls” sold to the highest bidders for research.

This will “secure” citizenship for millions of “future” Democratic voters.

In other words, we must “change” the  Constitution for the greater “good” of America.

Does anyone find it odd that “Illegal’s” comes across the border with precious “anchor baby” nestled in tummy that American “tax payers” pay for, and if she goes “straight” to Planned Parenthood, it’s just a “fetus” for which we “pay” too.

Maybe we could have “mandatory” abortions for “Illegal’s!” Free them of their “burdensome” anchor babies. It’s their “debt” to America. They can “supply” Planned Parenthood with “fetal specimens” as a down payment in return for “legal” resident status.

Just some food for thought…
