Anchor Baby Law needs to be redefined with specific restrictions giving the parent the option to take child back to country of origin, or place child as a ward of the court until resolution can be reached. Until then the parents need to return to country of origin if they entered USA Illegally! This issue has indirectly caused the establishment of Sanctuary Cities creating a division in our society! It has also cost some of our countrymen their very lives such as the Steinle case in San Francisco.
The Anchor Baby Law does encourage people to create unlawful entry into The United States. It is exasperated by the fact that relatives will follow illegally. The aspect of having a child is specific to certain common sense rules such as never have more children than what you can feed, or educate. It is up to each parent to feed and provide the education for their offspring, not the left behind children of illegals!
The 14th amendment has been misinterpreted to some degree. The founders never meant for people pouring into our country to give birth for the prospect of themselves becoming citizens automatically. People entering our country should apply legally for admission and only then will the child born in the United States will be a citizen along with the parents!
Amendment 14 Section 1
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
This redefining of the Anchor Baby Law would eliminate problems we are experiencing today. It has become so out of control that Sanctuary Cities have been established to violate federal laws guarding the safety and security of our nation and our borders.
It is refreshing that one state is stepping forward to solve this problem. The State of Texas has passed SB4 in a 93-54 vote to dismantle sanctuary cities. The bill would allow local peace officers to question the immigration status of those they legally detain and not arrest. It would also allow for the removal from office any law enforcement official who does not cooperate with federal immigration officials. Those who do not comply also could be charged with a Class A misdemeanor and could face jail time.
The only people that oppose this bill and the redefining of Anchor Baby law are liberals and Democrats. The liberals because they don’t care about fiscal responsibility and the Democrats because they want as many illegals in our country for a voting base.
All financial problems end up costing the hard working families of our country more in taxes, safety, and security. It doesn’t put the solving of the problems on those that create the problems.
