One out of about every twelve newborns in the U.S. is an Anchor Baby. Or the U.S. born child of illegal migrants, according to a Pew Research study. This means that one baby is delivered every 93 seconds, based on 08 census data. The huge number of foreign children born on American soil–roughly 340,000 per year–is also an economic imposition us those of us who pay taxes, to help raise, feed and educate those children of illegals.
Eventually those 340,000 children can join the U.S. workforce and compete for wages against the roughly four million children of U.S. parents that enter the slow-growing economy each year. Only 28% of likely voters believe that these children should automatically be American citizens. In fact, the proposal is so unpopular that even Jeb who favors large-scale immigration, has criticized pregnant foreigners who grab citizenship for their kids by flying into the country posing as tourist.
The growing industry of “birth tourism” is so large that even Calif’s government recently cracked down on the illegal–but rarely suppressed–trade. The rewards to the parents of these babies are huge. The mother, for example, can collect federal welfare on behalf of the child and the adult child–as a U.S. citizen–will eventually be able to win a green card for his or her parents despite their prior illegal entry.
71% of illegal-alien headed households with children received some sort of welfare in 09. Compared with 39% of native-headed houses with children. The cost of K-12 public school alone for U.S.-born kids of illegals is at a minimum, around $160,000 a year using the average cost $12,300 per pupil per year. Additionally, under universities system of racial preferences, anchor babes will get bonus SAT and GPA points when they apply.
Sen. Vitter (R-LA) and Congressman Steve King (R-IA) have introduced bills that would correct this misapplication of the 14th amendment by ensuring citizenship is only granted to a child that has at least one parent who is either a U.S. citizen or a legal permanent resident. Trump, Cruz and a number of others have stated they are for restrictions.
Marco Rubio, and Jeb the Bush have both argued that we should continue this controversial application that allows foreign migrants to appropriate citizenship for their kids. Marco Rubio co-authored the Gang of Eight bill which won the endorsement of LaRaza and would substantially increase family chain migration. When asked by CNBC why he defends this unpopular application of the 14th amendment, Rubio explained that he supports it because U.S. born foreign children “are people.”
I think a possible answer to this would be— The kids a citizen in waiting. Becoming a citizen doesn’t happen till he’s 18. Until then he and his parent return to their native land. When he turns 18, if he passes test in English, America History and the Constitution, if he has no criminal record or drug related offenses, he can enter as a citizen.
On another subject. You probably have heard that those in Washington hate conservatives more than marxist. Speaker Boehner proved that Wed. when at an event for Scott Tipton of Colorado, he called Ted Cruz a jackass. Now I won’t insult your intelligence by comparing their resumes, accomplishments, and IQ’s, I’ll leave that to you to figure out, but the remark did not go over well with many that were attending that evening.
In Boehner’s defense, the rally was being held at a local watering hole and well, we know the Speaker likes his occasional drink. But this sort of thing is becoming more common.
In 2012 McConnell said conservatives “needed a punch in the nose,” the following year he vowed to “crush” the Tea Party and any Constitutional conservatives who dared to challenge the GOOP establishment.
So let me ask you–Do you ever hear these smucks use that language when referring to the people who are actually trying to destroy the country? No, the vitriol is reserved for those of us who love this country, and want to protect her interest.
By the way, J.D. Winteregg, mounted a respectable first-time challenge to Boehner in 2014 and has recruited a top-tier campaign staff, including members of Dave Brat’s team. Brat if you remember lead the charge to get Eric Cantor, unseated. By the way, Bush just hired Cantor to work on his team. What does that tell you?
You can find out more about J.D. at jdwinteregg.com he could use a few bucks if you have them to spare and what a delight it would be to see the back of that teary eyed jerk who plays at leadership but is really a lackey of the left.
