Texas: No Birth Certificates For Illegal Aliens
“If anyone’s going to be deported, it’s going to be you! … Get out! We are the future. You’re old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you – leave like beaten rats. You old white people, it is your duty to die. Right now, we’re already controlling those elections, whether it’s by violence or nonviolence. Through love of having children we’re going to take over.” –Augustin Cebada, information minister of Brown Berets, militant para-military soldiers of Aztlan shouting at U.S. citizens at an Independence Day rally in Los Angeles.
So called ‘anchor babies’ has been a tool of illegal alien females for decades to get their child U.S. citizenship when in fact, a child born of someone who smuggles themselves into OUR country, someone who was not invited into OUR country has no right to U.S. citizenship.
Long have millions of us been fighting ‘anchor babies’ only be ignored by a Republican controlled U.S. House, Senate and White House under Bush, Jr., who did nothing to stop the human tidal wave. An invasion without an army.
States must fight legal fiction called ‘anchor babies’, October 3, 2011
“Consider these words from Edward J. Erler, Professor of Political Science, California State University, San Bernardino, in his column (I hope you take the time to read all of it):
Birthright Citizenship and Dual Citizenship: Harbingers of Administrative Tyranny
“In sum, this legacy of feudalism—which we today call birthright citizenship—was decisively rejected as the ground of American citizenship by the Fourteenth Amendment and the Expatriation Act of 1868. It is absurd, then, to believe that the Fourteenth Amendment confers the boon of American citizenship on the children of illegal aliens. Nor does the denial of birthright citizenship visit the sins of the parents on the children, as is often claimed, since the children of illegal aliens born in the U.S. are not being denied anything to which they have a right. Their allegiance should follow that of their parents during their minority. Furthermore, it is difficult to fathom how those who defy American law can derive benefits for their children by their defiance—or that any sovereign nation would allow such a thing.”
“He further points out: “But in any case, to say that children of legal aliens are entitled to citizenship is one thing; after all, their parents are in the country with the permission of the U.S. It is entirely different with illegal aliens, who are here without permission. Thus repeal of the current policy of birthright citizenship for the children of illegal aliens would not require a constitutional amendment.”
“Prof. Erler hit it out of the ball park: Children born on US soil of an illegal alien parent (or two parents) regardless of country of origin have no “right” to U.S. citizenship.”
Also from the column above and what ended up happening?
‘Anchor Baby’ Constitutional Amendment to Face Scrutiny in Congress – December 26, 2010 (FOX News)
“In a matter of weeks, Congress will go from trying to help young, illegal immigrants become legal to debating whether children born to parents who are in the country illegally should continue to enjoy automatic U.S. citizenship. Such a hardened approach — and the rhetoric certain to accompany it — should resonate with the GOP faithful who helped swing the House in Republicans’ favor. But it also could further hurt the GOP in its endeavor to grab a large enough share of the growing Latino vote to win the White House and the Senate majority in 2012. Legislation to test interpretations of the 14th Amendment as granting citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants will emerge early next session.”
“There is a rancid bill in Congress right now that should be rejected: H.R.140 – Birthright Citizenship Act of 2011. Why? Because it includes citizenship for illegal aliens who serve in our military. The Department of Defense is so hard up for IED fodder for the on-going illegal invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, they – with the blessing of the Outlaw Congress – have allowed illegal aliens to enlist. Currently there are about 29,000 illegal aliens serving in our military who should have been deported the minute their legal status was determined. Rep. Steve King’s bill rewards violating our immigration laws. That is not a solution, it’s a magnet for more illegals to invade this country and enlist. The military provides a lot of perks paid for by you and me. I’m sick of being fleeced to reward criminal behavior.
“Forget about pandering to the “Latino vote.” I am so sick of racist politics shoved down our throats by minorities. This isn’t about anyone’s race. It’s about our laws and the financial destruction heaped on this country as a result of allowing nearly 25 MILLION illegals into this country. Pile on the number of children birthed by illegal female aliens and the numbers become staggering. According to a 2010 study released by the Pew Hispanic Center, 79% of the 5.1 million children of criminals (illegal aliens) were born in the U.S. That means just over 4 million babies have been given U.S. citizenship when they should have been deported immediately with the mother. Since their mother had no right to be on U.S. soil, the baby has no “right” to U.S. citizenship. “
Then along came The Donald, Trump that is and suddenly, the issue went nationwide in a big way. Trump brought up the issue in his usual politically incorrect way which sent the pro-lawlessness, pro-illegals organizations and their useful fools in the media into a frenzy. Republicans and conservatives are mean racists, blah, blah, blah. Get out the violins.
Immediately the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was shoved in everyone’s face. The bastardization of the Fourteenth Amendment when talking about illegal aliens. Trump is getting accurate legal advice on this issue and has told the media as much repeatedly while they attack him. Their attacks aren’t detering support for Trump. As one average, ordinary American said to a reporter at Trump’s rally in Mobile, Alabama, August 21st when ask by a reporter why Trump is so popular, the man replied: “He is our microphone”. That says it all for millions.
Like the ‘natural born citizen’ clause of the U.S. Constitution, the issue of the 14th Amendment and ‘anchor babies’ is fuzzy to a lot of Americans for a number of reasons. One, civics, the founding of this republic, the Constitution and Bill of Rights are not taught in school any more; a few schools here and there still do, but most of the schools across this country stopped teaching civics decades ago. More important to indoctrinate America’s children with lies about ‘climate change’ or sexual deviants are born that way.
Two, the dominant media outright lies about both the issues above (to protect Soetoro aka Obama) and because most of them are ignorant like Bill O’Reilly. FOX likes to continue advertising that gas bag has the number one show and perhaps he does but that doesn’t mean O’Reilly knows what he’s talking about when it comes to constitutional issues. He doesn’t and last week he showed his ignorance once again. Even if his staff did the research, if it’s wrong, O’Reilly should not have kept repeating over and over on his show.
Not only does Bill O’Reilly demand you believe that amendment automatically gives babies born on U.S. citizenship by an illegal alien mother, but he cited a court case he said ends the discussion: INS v. Rios-Pineda [471 U.S. 444]. Now, either Bill O’Reilly can’t read English or he chooses to ignore the very case he cites because he is flat out wrong.
“O’Reilly should stop treating a passing reference in a United States Supreme Court to “anchor babies” as United States citizens as a definitive pronouncement on constitutional law, study the history of the Fourteenth Amendment to glean its intent and apologize to Angela Tantaros and Donald Trump.
“Justice John Marshall Harlan II explained in Afroyim v. Rusk, 387 U.S. 253 (1967), that the sponsors of the Fourteenth Amendment believed that citizenship needed to be defined, lest freed slaves be denied citizenship under the “reasoning” of the Dred Scott decision, “good law” before the Civil War and notorious since.
“Granting United States citizenship to “anchor babies” was NOT intended when the Fourteenth Amendment was enacted. In 1898, in United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, the Supreme Court ruled that a child born in the United States to legal immigrants was a United States citizen. It did not address the issue of the citizenship of an “anchor baby.” Anchor babies” received a mention in an 1982 Supreme Court case in which it was not an issue. Therefore, that mention is merely dicta, not holding.”
Bill O’Reilly is a bully – especially when he’s proven to be wrong on an issue. A 6’5″ bully who makes it a practice to throw his weight around while playing like he’s really just your “humble correspondent”.
“The host of the “O’Reilly Factor” has had a string of controversies over the last year. In February, a number of former colleagues came forward claiming that the Fox News host had exaggerated his own experiences in Argentine war zones. That same week O’Reilly was accused of lying about his minor cameo in the story of the JFK assassination. Then were more claims still that he exaggerated the dangers faced while covering the LA riots. Bill O’Reilly’s former colleagues say he’s embellished accounts of his reporting from Argentina in the 1980s.
“The good news for O’Reilly is that the storm has settled. Unlike NBC’s Brian Williams, who was fired after making similar embellishments, O’Reilly still sits comfortably atop the Fox News food pyramid. The bad news is that he’s now embroiled in a scandal that would appear to run afoul of the “family values” his network tries so hard to uphold…
“According to the sources claims – which were later backed up by court transcripts also obtained by Gawker – O’Reilly’s 16-year-old daughter told a forensic examiner that she had witnessed her father physically abuse her mother. Without knowing that his daughter was watching, O’Reilly allegedly dragged McPhilmy down a staircase by her neck”. Some other nasty stuff in that piece.
As as been pointed in out in dozens of articles, the Fourteenth Amendment has nothing to do with giving citizenship to illegal aliens born on U.S. soil. It was about slavery and citizenship.
The column cited above (O’Reilly – make anchor babies U.S. citizens) really covers it all so I hope you’ll take time to read it. One of the cases cited is one I used in an older column exactly one year earlier than the article above: PLYLER v. DOE, 457 U.S. 202 (1982) – 457 U.S. 202 and why schools in this country are forced to educate illegal minors. My column goes to the solution: force self-deporting by tens of millions of illegals. If you missed my column, I hope you’ll take the time to read it because it is the solution, not another Band Aid. I also included quotes from Dirty Harry Reid about illegals, but you can watch him blast illegal aliens in his own words:
“In a speech before Congress in 1993 and uncovered by conservative web site The Right Scoop, Sen. Harry Reid blasted the fact that illegal aliens were given “rewards” for having babies in the United States. Heck, he even used the dreaded term “illegal alien.”
“If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant?” Reid asked. “No sane country would do that, right?” Reid then slammed the fact that children of illegals are rewarded “with U.S. citizenship” and given social services in this country. The Nevada senator asked, with that information, “Is it any wonder that two-thirds of the babies born at taxpayer expense in county-run hospitals in Los Angeles are born to illegal alien mothers?” Wonder if anyone on the left is going to call him a racist.” The video is at the link above. Why haven’t see seen it on FOX News?
Of course, in order to steal citizenship for their illegal baby or minor child to be able to suck taxpayers in this country dry, there has to be a birth certificate issued. Texas is doing what should have been done for the past 30 years.
“Citizens of Mexico and several Central American nations have filed suit, claiming entitlement to birth certificates for their children born in the United States. They allege that the Texas denies them the certificates because they do not possess the required identification.
“The parent plaintiffs of the 23 children claim that the State of Texas violates their children’s rights because the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that any child born on U.S. soil warrants American citizen. It also provides that they are citizens of the state where they reside. The plaintiffs and their children reside in Texas.”
1. Texas is not violating their children’s rights because illegal aliens are not U.S. citizens and have no constitutional rights.
2. “…the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that any child born on U.S. soil warrants American citizen.” is simply repeating a fiction.
3. They and their children do not reside in Texas. They squatted here in Texas after sneaking across our border.
The articles continues:
“They allege in their petition filed in U.S. District Court in Austin that the birth certificates are being denied because of their immigration status. They argue that, “Such refusal is de facto based upon the immigrant status of the Plaintiff parents.” In the lawsuit, the parents do not refer to themselves as “immigrants,” or “illegal immigrants.” They refer to themselves in their legal capacity “as next friend.”
“In the petition filed in federal court in the Western District, the parents cite the Equal Protection Clause and the Supremacy Clause, and allege that their rights are being violated under these sections. At issue is the form of identification that is now being required of parents by the Bureau of Vital Statistics in border communities. They claim that officials in Hidalgo, Cameron, and Starr counties deny them birth certificates lawfully theirs and their childrens’.”
Again, it all comes down to the law: “…deny them birth certificates lawfully theirs and their childrens’.” Since they broke the law by sneaking across the border, they are not here lawfully so stop trying to twist words to justify a lie they are somehow “lawfully” entitled to birth certificates.
Memo From Middle America: Trump Says “Eliminate Anchor Baby Loophole” —Texas May Have Begun!, August 25, 2015
“According to the complaint by the plaintiffs, Texas officials refuse to provide birth certificates because they won’t accept the infamous matricula consular, a form of ID issued to illegals by Mexican consulates in the U.S, Now, illegals have to show a driver’s license or border identification or a visa with their passport.
“In Texas, an applicant for a driver’s license must produce documentation proving “Identity”, “Social Security number”, “U.S. citizenship or lawful presence status” and “Texas residency”. The “border identification card” is for foreigners who may live right across the border and are authorized to cross back and forth. It is a legal form of identification. But they didn’t have that either.
“The “visas with passport” part means Texas doesn’t accept a foreign passport unless it has a current U.S. visa attached [Texas fights suit after denying birth certificates to children of illegal immigrants, by Eyder Peralta, NPR, July 23, 2015]. Obviously, the plaintiffs can’t provide these documents.
“In effect, these illegals are demanding that the U.S. accept an identification document issued by the Mexican government with the express purpose of facilitating the illegals’ presence in the U.S. The Mexican government’s subversive scheme only works because too many American jurisdictions do accept it. (And seeing how well it worked for illegal Mexicans, Central American countries began issuing equivalent documents to their illegals in the U.S.)”
If this would have been done decades ago across this country, illegals would have gone back to where they came from because they come here to steal the fruits of your labor: “The parents complain their children are not able to obtain government benefits, including health insurance, and they cannot enroll their children into school.”
That’s right and the corrupt U.S. government has promoted sucking we the people dry to pay for illegals:
Why hasn’t the Director of the U.S. Census Bureau been indicted? February 2, 2010
“Keeping with the Obama Administration’s mission to conduct the most diverse outreach campaign in history, the director of the U.S. Census Bureau is touring Mexican border towns with high illegal immigrant populations to personally assure that those who fill out questionnaires this spring will not be deported.
“This is a safe thing for everyone to do regardless of your immigration status,” the president’s handpicked census director (Robert Groves) told residents of a renowned illegal alien “colonia” in south Texas this week. He visited several dilapidated makeshift homes off of a dirt road in a Laredo neighborhood called San Carlos to stress that census data will be kept confidential and not turned over to immigration authorities.”
“The census director is also giving illegal immigrants across the country a lesson in basic civics by explaining that hundreds of billions of federal dollars are allocated to state and local governments based on population. Being included in the decennial count will in turn allow them to receive more public benefits; “We want to count you and your family can benefit from the services,” Groves is telling illegal aliens.
“This marks the latest of many administration efforts to cater to illegal immigrants. A few weeks ago the government launched an unprecedented $133 million advertising campaign—in dozens of languages—to promote the census with the Spanish ads assuring the decennial count is confidential and cannot divulge respondents’ immigration status.
“The never-before-seen promotional blitz includes television commercials, print and outdoor ads as well as online advertising. Hundreds of ads have been drafted in 28 languages, including two Chinese dialects, Russian, Arabic and Tagolog. The Spanish advertisements, distributed on national television and print media, are of particular interest because they guarantee the safety of illegal aliens who fill out the census forms.
“A few months ago the government announced that, in an effort to reach out to illegal aliens, it is spending $26 million to send Spanish-language questionnaires directly to homes for the first time in history. In past years, participants could request special forms in several languages—including Spanish, Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese—but the effort marks the first time that the government sends to entire regions census questionnaires in a language other than English.”
Count illegals in the census to make sure we the people are raped in higher taxes for their free ride. And remember: Since the people’s purse, the U.S. Treasury is overdrawn nearly $19 trillion dollars, all the money spent on illegals by the corrupt government in Washington District of Criminals is borrowed with the interest slapped on our backs, our children and grand children. More debt to fund liars, cheats and thieves lifestyles instead of saving we the people money by immediately deporting them:
“For example, the American Action Forum (AAF), a business-backed pro-amnesty group, claims that legal costs and forced migration would spike the cost of Trump’s plan up to $300 billion to arrest and remove all illegal immigrants living in the United States. The AAF was founded by Fred Malek, who co-founded and chairs a hospitality investment company whose hotels employ many low skilled migrants.
“AAF’s cost projections have been trumpeted by many in the mainstream media such as NBC and Fox News.
“In reality, “a modest increase in enforcement (such as E-verify or visa tracking) would cause significant attrition in the illegal population– sending millions of illegals home on their own at no cost to the U.S. taxpayer.” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the non-partisan Center for Immigration Studies. There’s good evidence for Vaughan’s argument. “Arizona’s population of unauthorized immigrants of working age fell by about 17 percent” in the course of a single year, after the state began to enforce E-verify, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.
“The claim from Malek’s AAF also ignores the financial savings caused by the return of migrants to their home countries. Illegal migrants cost U.S. taxpayers a net total of nearly $100 billion annually, concluded a 2010 investigation by the Federation for American Immigration Reform.”
Imagine how those numbers have swelled over just the last two years with the surges of illegals crushing across the border here in Texas alone. And, now, we the taxpayers of Texas will spend money fighting a lawsuit that should be thrown out (above).
Naturally, the corrupt Mexican government is howling like a stuck pig:
“The Mexican government is warning that Texas’ denial of birth certificates for U.S. children born here to undocumented immigrants stands to imperil the relationship between Mexico and the Lone Star State. The concern was raised in an amicus brief filed Monday evening to lend support to immigrants parents who sued Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children, even after showing their “matrículas,” the ID cards issued by the Mexican consulate to undocumented immigrants.
“[It] not only jeopardizes their dignity and well-being, but could threaten the unique relationship between Mexico and Texas, the Mexican government said in a brief tied to a lawsuit filed against the state by Texas Civil Rights Project and Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid. The lawsuit, the Texas Tribune reported, was filed on behalf of six U.S. citizen children and their undocumented parents, who came from Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala. Other groups since have joined the suit.”
They should rethink their bitching because you don’t push Texas around without a fight. The State of Texas has the absolute legal right to make required documentation mandatory. Not to mention what hypocrites they are:
Mexico Deports More Illegals Than The US Does – Mexico tightens immigration laws, while asking us to loosen ours, June 22, 2015
“Mexico has had more success at deportation due in part to its very stringent immigration laws. In fact, Mexico considers entering the country illegally a felony. The idea of languishing in a Mexican prison is enough to convince most illegals to avoid being caught there. In fact, most Central American people trying to flee their homeland are not looking to stay in Mexico. They are just trying to pass through to the United States.”
Last week I sent a letter to Texas Governor Greg Abbott who is no dummy. Prior to becoming governor in January this year, Greg Abbott was reelected as the 50th Attorney General of Texas on November 2, 2010. Prior to his election to three terms as Attorney General, Greg Abbott served as a Justice on the Texas Supreme Court and as a State District Judge in Harris County. I sent the same letter to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Besides being a lawyer, Paxton served in the Texas House of Representatives and then the Texas Senate.
I told them I fully supported not issuing birth certificates to illegal alien minors, but I also think there’s another legal issue here they need to look at: I believe babies born to women who sneak into this country are citizens of the mother’s country, not the U.S. And, since they are babies or minors under age 18, they cannot apply to relinquish that citizenship or apply for U.S. Citizenship.
Mexican Constitution – Chapter II – Article 30. Mexican nationality is acquired by birth or by naturalization.
A. Mexicans by birth are:
II. Those born in a foreign country of Mexican parents; of a Mexican father and a foreign mother; or of a Mexican mother and an unknown father.” A child born to an illegal alien female from Mexico is born with Mexican citizenship.
Honduras also has a constitution which says their citizens are Honduran citizens as does El Salvador and Communist China which I laid out in my letter to Abbott and Paxton. It seems to me the State of Texas cannot issue U.S. Birth certificates to babies of illegals because those babies are not eligible to become U.S. Citizens under the constitutions and/or laws of the birth mother’s country.
I hope they will look into that legal question. I also hope you will contact your governor and attorney general and tell them you fully support not issuing a birth certificate to babies or minors of an illegal alien mother.
Stop the ‘anchor baby’ industry. They have no rights because they’re not citizens and should be deported as Donald Trump said: The baby goes with the mother back to where she came from. Only strong enforcement will discourage more illegals from sneaking into our country. If prissy sissy elected officials don’t have the stomach to get the job done they should be thrown out of office.
Children of an illegal alien mother should blame her, not we the people because the mother is the one who broke our immigration laws by sneaking across the border.
