The Invasion Continues
Texas has an estimated 1.5 million illegal aliens residing in their state producing an estimated 60,000 new Democrat voters each year: Democrats have been slow to address the issue with such an increase in Democrat voters each year, but Republicans are finally forcing the immigration issue to be resolved in a year that has Democrat politicians preparing far an old-fashioned ass whipping at the polls.
Parkland Memorial Hospital delivers more of those babies than any other hospital in the state. Last year at Parkland, 11,071 babies were born to women who were noncitizens, about 74 percent of total deliveries. Most of these women are believed to be in the country illegally.
State Rep. Rafael Anchía, D-Dallas, accused Republicans of using the births to generate an explosive election issue.
“They’re pulling the pin on the immigration grenade,” he said. “It’s all about the November elections and continuing to use the immigration issue as a wedge to win votes this fall.”
Texans are determined to fight this issue at the state level and it looks like Obama and Holder will be spending a great deal of time filling charges against states over the illegal alien issues that Obama refuses to address without a provision for blanket amnesty.
“They’re violating our law, and we’re giving their children the benefit of U.S. citizenship,” said state Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, whose 2009 bill in the Legislature would have challenged the birthright of immigrant children.
That bill died in committee, although Berman has vowed to file another version next year that would prohibit the state from issuing birth certificates to the children of “illegal aliens.”
At issue is the 14th Amendment that was enacted to keep Democrats from enforcing the Dredd Scott Decision that in essence that former slaves were chattel or property and not qualified to have the right to vote or be a citizen. The 14th was designed to give the right of citizenship to everyone who was born in America; Republicans maintain convincingly, that it was meant for people who were legally and not for people who are here illegally. They argue that we are rewarding felons with citizenship for “Anchor Babies” and that they are using up our hospital and welfare assistance programs while legitimate immigrants wait years for the opportunity to immigrate legally, a process that is expensive and time consuming.
Of course if we are going to allow the Mexican illegal to literally cut in line, why are we being so exclusive?
If this is going to be an issue that is decided by the people who merely want to emigrate why not open the borders to Canadians and the Citizens of the World like our President claims to be. Either open the borders to the world and accept Islamic Terrorists and East Indian engineers with the same level of indifference or close the damn borders and make it a felony with mandatory prison time for hiring an illegal.
The 14th Amendment was written to keep the Democrat from manipulating the law so that they could maintain their power base in the South, with the pre-Civil War decision by the Supreme Court in 1857 that declared slaves as property and without rights. The 14th Amendment was enacted in 1868 and for the last few years there have been several efforts to change the law that has reached the point of absurdity.
In 2009, the Birthright Citizenship Act, had approximately 100 co-sponsors in congress, and would have required at least one parent to be a citizen in order for the baby to become a US citizen at birth. This year’s attempt to change the amendment has influential Republicans offering their support and demanding a national debate on the issue.
Senator John Cornryn, R Texas, has called for a congressional review of “birthright citizenship”, maintaining that illegal aliens have manipulated and taken advantage of the 1868 constitutional amendment. Quoting the Senator, “We need to have hearings, we need to consult constitutional scholars ad study what the implications are.”
There are many of us out in the country who know what the implication are, without the hearings.
Senator Lindsey Graham, Progressive Republican from South Carolina, has hinted that he ‘might’ introduce an amendment that would repeal the citizenship provision of the amendment. Republican Senators from Arizona McCain and Kyl, facing a state that is nearing chaos and revolt, now feel that the time might be ripe to repeal the citizenship provision of the amendment. The previous years have been spent waiting for the fruit to ripen or perhaps they are in danger of losing their seats if they don’t move now.
Senator Kyl asked with mild outrage after years in office, on a Sunday talk show, “If both parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal behavior?”
Amendments to the constitution require a 2/3 vote in both houses, and then ratification by three quarters of the state legislatures. It has only been accomplished 27 times in U.S., the last time was in 1992 in reference to congressional pay increases.
Texas records 60 to 65 thousand births to illegal aliens each year and grants them citizenship according to the Health and Human Services Commission, these births represent 16% of births stat wide. There were 542,152 births from 2001 to 2009 to illegal aliens in Texas. In ten years, demographically Texas may decide to revert back to Mexican rule at the current rate of births among illegal aliens.
