    Rep Steve King Introduces Anti-Anchor Baby Bill To End Illegal Alien Abuse Of 14th Am

    Rep Steve King Introduces Anti-Anchor Baby Bill To End Illegal Alien Abuse Of 14th Amendment

    Posted on 16 January, 2015 by Rick Wells


    Arguably the staunchest defender of American citizen sovereignty in the House of Representatives, Steve King (R-IA), has once again introduced legislation to end the practice of birthright citizenship in the United States.

    Rep King identifies the problem as an “anchor baby agenda” in which illegal aliens deliberately enter the United States in order to give birth or become pregnant once here in order to have a child that is a U.S. citizen and establish a connection to the country which can then be exploited as a means by which to manipulate residency.

    Section one of the Fourteenth Amendment reads, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    Rep King said in a statement, “A century ago it didn’t matter very much that a practice began that has now grown into a birthright citizenship, an anchor baby agenda.” He added, “When they started granting automatic citizenship on all babies born in the United States they missed the clause in the 14th Amendment that says, ‘And subject to the jurisdiction thereof.’ So once the practice began, it grew out of proportion and today between 340,000 and 750,000 babies are born in America each year that get automatic citizenship even though both parents are illegal. That has got to stop.”

    King’s legislation would provide U.S. citizenship only to people born in the U.S. if one of their parents is a U.S. citizen, a legal permanent resident or is an immigrant serving in the armed forces.

    This bill is virtually identical to legislation he introduced in both of his previous two terms in office. In its most recent incarnation, the bill had 39 co-sponsors, all Republican. To date the current bill has attracted seven cosponsors.

    This is totally a common sense piece of legislation to end the nonsense of giving children of illegal aliens automatic US citizenship because they were born here. This was not the intention of the 14th Amendment, this is a usurping of all our laws and intentions, so this bill should receive the full support of every member of Congress. And hiss boo to those who don't support it.

    I agree 100%. However, common sense seems to be a very rare bird in Washington, D.C., these days.

    Yes, it certainly is a rare bird, and we need to seriously examine why that is the case, since common sense has been a foundation of the American character, way of life, and standard of living since our country was founded and Thomas Paine wrote a book on it.

    What turns a group of politicians, most of them ironically with law and business degrees, into a bunch of rare birds with no common sense? Crime and Bribes. These politicians are making fools of themselves to line their pockets, while destroying our country in the process, because they're on the take with the cartels behind this travesty. There is no other explanation why a group of elected officials from members of Congress to a President support illegal immigration or illegal aliens in any way, shape or form, and do the complete opposite of what a normal, rational, common sense person would do. Instead, they're doing what politicians on the take do, the bizarre, the inexplicable, the incomprehensible, the irrational. It's time to call a spade a spade, and call upon our media and law enforcement to investigate and report on Cartel Gate, so we can get the goods on these rotten rats in our government and get rid of them.
