58% Say No to Citizenship for Children of Illegal Immigrants
Fifty-eight percent (58%) of U.S. voters say a child born to an illegal immigrant in this country should not automatically become a citizen of the United States, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
What a coincidence! That is also what the law says: 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.
Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree and say if a women enters the United States as an illegal alien and gives birth to a child here, that child should automatically be a U.S. citizen.
The illegal alien enablers must be feeling a huge setback on this one since shows an overwhelming majority disagree with the current interpretation of the 14th amendment and the status quo.
Maybe parents are tired of hearing the schools cry poverty while going out of their way to include the Spanish language and Mexican culture in everything they do.
Maybe patients are tired of being in the maternity ward and realizing that a majority of folks in there don't speak English and aren't paying for the hospital visit.
Or maybe everyone is just tired of children being used as a political wedge to argue for amnesty for parents.
