    California delegates to tackle illegal immigration

    Delegates to tackle illegal immigration

    By Bill Leonard, State Board of Equalization


    When the California Republican Party meets in convention this weekend in Century City, the delegates will consider several resolutions on illegal immigration. Instead of complaining about the federal government's failure to secure our borders, most of these resolutions focus on state policies that can be improved to solve the problem.

    The first resolution discusses local government housing vouchers that are often used to provide “affordable housing” at taxpayer expense to illegal aliens. The City of Los Angeles is the largest offender.

    The second resolution demands that California begin enforcing its own laws for payroll tax withholding, workers' compensation, job safety, minimum wages, and other business regulations that are being ignored on a daily basis by thousands and thousands of employers who hire illegal aliens.

    The third resolution would place the California Republican Party on record in opposition to any form of amnesty, including “guest worker” programs, for illegal aliens.

    The most controversial resolution addresses the problem of “anchor babies,” children of illegal aliens who are treated as American citizens under current law, even if they immediately return to their parents' homeland. These anchor babies often entitle their illegal alien parents to collect welfare benefits, and they can petition the government to allow their illegal alien parents to become citizens. Reasonable people can differ on the interpretation of the 14th Amendment, but the text suggests that the children of illegal aliens are not necessarily American citizens.

    Congress has special enforcement powers under the 14th Amendment, so it could certainly clarify this matter. It has often been noted that America is the only nation on Earth that provides automatic citizenship to children born to illegal aliens. This policy needs to be re-examined in light of our modern welfare state.

    These are difficult issues, but I applaud the California Republican Party delegates for discussing them openly and honestly at their convention.

    Someday, maybe the Legislature will follow suit.

    Brian, this is what I have been looking for, the issue of anchor babies, what can we do here to get this issue before the whole congress, to get our leaders to rectify this? I think a whole lot of the illegal issue would go away if we could change our policy on making citizens of illegal babies born here by their illegal parents, not to mention alay some of the huge cost of health care for these mothers.I am not saying this would stop the invasion, but it would be a big step in the right direction thats for sure. I have another question, could this issue be decided state by state? or is it a federal issue?It might also stop the having of unwanted children simply to have a hold in the US.

    Nitty,

    We need to clean a few open border whackos like McCain out first. He should be gone by Jan. then they can vote for some reasonable laws that will be passed by people that care about this country. The anchor babies have to go! Deport the parents and stip the children of the citizenship. Easy as that.

    You are right again Dixie, we will concentrate on getting rid of McCain by Janurary, what a New Year's gift that would be.
