Congressman Hunter renews calls to end "birthright citizenship" for illegal aliens.


“Birthright citizenship” is when the baby of an illegal alien is given US citizenship. It is completely unconstitutional. In 1898, the United States supreme court ruled that birthright citizenship applies to the babies of immigrants legally residing in the United States. For the past few decades left-wing activist judges have extended this to illegal aliens. The far-left are fanatical supporters of this because it becomes a tool for the illegal alien family to stay in the United Sates, receive endless welfare and entitlement benefits, and even bring more relatives into the nation. The ultimate goal of the left is to flood the nation with 3rd world immigrants who will vote for left-wing candidates and policies.

Leftists say that the 14th amendment gives illegal aliens “birthright citizenship.” In fact, the amendment was only intended to grant citizenship to former slaves. It states that only those “subject to US jurisdiction,” qualify. This counts illegal aliens out. President Grant signed the Expatriation Act 1868, a companion piece to the 14th Amendment, also explicitly disqualifies those in the nation illegally from having citizenship given to their children.

Of course there is also the issue that the 14th Amendment was never lawfully ratified. In order to have the required number of states, six southern states living under Federal Occupation had votes cast for them by their occupiers. Two other states, Ohio and New Jersey rescinded their initial ratifications, but were counted as “yes” votes anyway.

Rep. Duncan Hunter said he would support deporting U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants, adding that “it takes more than walking across the border to be an American citizen.”

The 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees citizenship
to all persons born in the United States.

The San Diego-area Republican congressman spoke Saturday at a video recorded tea party rally in Ramona. Hunter was asked by someone in the crowd if he backed deporting natural-born American citizens who are the children of illegal immigrants.

“I would have to, yes,” Hunter said.

Hunter said in the video that some of his critics believe his stance is mean-spirited.

“And we’re not being mean. We’re just saying it takes more than walking across the border to become an American citizen,” he said. “It’s what’s in our souls.”
