ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: Why is U.S. Birthright Citizenship for Sale?

By  Elois Zeanah
September 14, 2010

The expose that Asian businesses are “selling” U.S. birthright citizenship packages for tourists hit national news recently.  The practice is not new, however.   Foreigners worldwide have known about the cheap sale of U.S. citizenship for many years .

 Foreigners can buy U.S. citizenship for their children (and eventually get it for themselves) for the price of a ticket to the U.S. or get it free by stealing over the border.  Some foreigners come to the U.S. to get dual citizenship for their children; others birth their babies in the U.S. to get on the U.S. taxpayer dole and stay for life.   What is new is that U.S. citizens are just learning that:

 America bestows automatic birthright citizenship on babies born on U.S. soil regardless of whether their parents are tourists, terrorists, in the U.S. for one hour or one year, or in the U.S. illegally, and taxpayers pay billions of dollars a year for these anchor babies.  The exposure of this practice  has spurred outrage and national debate over birthright citizenship.  For sure, the President and Members of Congress have known about this travesty for a long, long time, but plan to do nothing about it unless Americans catch on to what’s happening and demand that Congress and the President fix this huge problem that cost taxpayers over $100 billion every year. 

Why do politicians not want to fix the problem?  Just as Esau sold his birthright to Jacob for a momentary fleshly gratification, politicians are trading Americans’ most precious birthright, citizenship, for votes for momentary power.   RINOs (Republicans in name only) cater to outlaw business contributors who break the law to get cheap labor.   Democrats dangle free services to illegal aliens to buy votes. 

This is why U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder won’t enforce federal immigration laws.  This is why U.S. Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano won’t seal the border.  And this is why the Obama Administration sues states like Arizona who will enforce federal immigration laws that government won’t.  And as unreal as it sounds, this is why the Obama Administration complained to the United Nations Human Rights Council and asked this international organization to trump U.S. Constitutional law and accuse Arizona of trampling human rights and being a rogue state.

Is a constitutional amendment needed?  There is a movement underfoot to mislead voters that a constitutional amendment is necessary to define what “citizen” means.  This is wrong!  Beware of politicians who try to fool voters as Esau deceived his father by dressing in the hairy skins of baby goats to steal his brother’s blessing from his father Issac.   American citizenship is a blessing from our Founding Fathers and should be treasured and safeguarded .

The same politicians who advocate a constitutional amendment are the same politicians who supported amnesty in the past and will in the future.  Politicians who make an impassioned case against birthright citizenship, then turn around and try to tie up the issue in a long drawn out and unnecessary constitutional amendment are either misinformed or purposefully trying to deceive citizens to avoid accountability. 

How can we stop automatic birthright citizenship for children of non-citizens?   First, we must inform all Members of Congress how birthright citizenship is tied directly to government spending, taxes, deficits and the national debt.  Most don’t know the taxpayers pay $113 billion in taxes for illegal immigrants every year and that illegal immigration is a major contributor to spending, deficits and debt that plague both federal and state governments. 

Second, we must educate our individual Members of Congress that Section 5 of the 14th Amendment gives Congress the power to reinstate the original intent of the Citizenship Clause.  The 1868 intent of the Citizenship Clause was to ensure that newly freed slaves could not be denied U.S. citizenship, and the jurisdictional clause was added so that the 14th Amendment could not be interpreted as a blanket grant of birthright citizenship to any person who by accident of birth was born on U.S. soil to parents of “foreigners or aliens”, but bureaucrats have expanded this definition.

And third, we must request that our states’ House of Representatives join the 93 cosponsors of H.R. 1868 which clarifies and reinstates the intent of the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment, and ask our Senators to introduce a companion bill in the Senate.   Of course, we know that H.R. 1868 will be void at the beginning of a new Legislative Session in January 2011 and this bill must be re-introduced.

The only way to end the explosive problem of illegal immigration and unfair taxation is to ban automatic birthright citizenship.  Every developed nation except Canada and the United Stated did so years ago to protect their national security, economy and taxpayers.   The definition of “citizen” can be done through legislation; a constitutional amendment is not needed.

Banning birthright citizenship will immediately reduce spending, taxes, deficits and debt.  How often is it that Legislators can solve so many problems with just one vote?   Spread the word to your Members of Congress.

    Thank you for another essential article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a complete way of writing? I have a presentation incoming week, and I am on the lookout for such information.5. The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and ‘skin’ the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.
