Idiot of the Day - Let The Hate Begin - "Anchor Babies" - Deportation of US Citizens
The author of Arizona's immigration law, state Sen. Russell Pearce, told constituents he wants to pass another measure to invalidate citizenship granted to the children of illegal aliens.
Pearce wrote that he plans to "push for an Arizona bill that would refuse to accept or issue a birth certificate that recognizes citizenship to those born to illegal aliens, unless one parent is a citizen," in an email obtained by Phoenix CBS affiliate KPHO.
Perhaps Pearce should read the Constitution. The 14th Amendment calls these people US Citizens.
And what did he say to justify these statements? Pearce said, "And we're not being mean. We're just saying it takes more than walking across the border to become an American citizen," he said. "It's what's in our souls."
Now I am just guessing here, but Pearce does not sound like a Native-American name but if it is in his "sole" I would assume he means his ancestors did not immigrate here. Or is it just that he was here first and so fuck everyone else who comes later? I think it is the later. Why?
Pearce also forwarded an email from another correspondent expanding on the proposal — which he later told KPHO he didn't agree with. "If we are going to have an effect on the anchor baby racket, we need to target the mother. Call it sexist, but that's the way nature made it. Men don't drop anchor babies, illegal alien mothers do," the email said.
Pearce did tell the CBS affiliate, however, that he didn't see anything wrong with using the term "anchor baby" to refer to natural-born U.S. citizens.
Last year, 92 Congressmen sponsored a bill that would change the 14th Amendment so that children of illegal aliens born in the United States would not be granted citizenship. The bill is still in committee.
Last month, Rep. Duncan Hunter of California told a tea party rally he would support deporting children of illegal aliens, even if they are citizens.
His spokesman later sought to clarify the remarks with the Associated Press, saying that Duncan believes that "U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants should stay with their parents unless there is a legal guardian who could take care of them."
This is hate!! And if you think it can't or doesn't effect you, think again. What if they or someone else uses that twisted logic to decide you are "not American enough"? That you are not a "pure blood" American. The Nazis went down this path.
Why is it that these "ultra conservatives" can pick and choose which provisions of the Constitution which they deem so important that they will defend with their blood but others they disagree with and think should be changed? Why do they deem their opinions so damn important?
