Pay attention to the last paragraph...
As usual, advocates for illegal aliens are misrepresenting the issue of birthright citizenship as observed in the Oct. 10 article, "Children march for citizenship rights."
The U.S. and Canada are the only industrialized countries that still allow birthright citizenship. Many other countries have ended the practice in recent decades because it encourages illegal immigration, and no nation can survive without control over its borders.
The current proposal to end birthright citizenship, H.R. 1868, is not retroactive, so nobody is "taking away citizenship" from young children — despite what advocates for unlimited immigration would have us believe. Furthermore, no one is questioning illegal immigrants' citizenship in their home countries.
Using Census Bureau data, the Pew Research Center estimates that in 2008, there were roughly 340,000 children born in the U.S.to illegal alien parents — 8 percent of all births. FAIR estimates states are paying over $1 billion per year for those births alone, besides the costs of education, housing and public assistance.
Because Congress has not addressed the abuse of the 14th Amendment or enforced immigration law adequately, the funds that state and local governments must provide to anchor babies amounts to additional taxes on U.S. citizens to subsidize illegal aliens.
