Anchor Babies

The Trump administration has a new way to go after not only those who are in the country illegally but now children born in this country are not entitled to automatic citizenship. This law may not affect those who already have birth certificates but if it is supported by the Supreme Court things will be a lot different in the future. This addition to the 14th amendment is written in its entirety. The author is Senator Jacob Howard (R-MI) on May 30, 1866.

“Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by natural law and national law a is a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States, who are foreigners, aliens who belong to the families of Ambassadors of foreign ministers accredited to the government of the United States, But will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt. As to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country.”

This is something that should not be ignored by those affected by immigration hurdles that try to block a path to citizenship. But it is the law.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
