OK, first thing you do is start deporting people -- not by the hundreds, not by the dozens. By the thousands. And that means entire families. Not just a father, a mother. But we keep families unified by deporting all people who are are here illegally, that's number one.First, she's dead wrong. The 14th Amendment clearly states:
I think there has to be an end to this thing called birthright citizenship. Some people call it anchor babies. But this is not required by our Constitution, it doesn't require a constitutional amendment.
"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.There are Federal statutes that implement this, a longstanding rule of English Common Law. Screw all that, says Ingraham. Bring back Dred-Scott. Ingraham says nothing about the descendants of slaves who gained their citizenship via this amendment, but its safe to assume she'd welcome mass deportation of black people without reservation.
I applaud Ingraham for her honesty. This is the essence of the GOP's position on not just immigration, but even the birthrights of the children of American citizens. The Republican Party is in favor police going around rounding up whole families and shipping them out. Even if the children are born and raised here. It doesn't matter if it turns America into a police state. Even those of you who have ancestors here for centuries will have to prove to the authorities that your children have the right to be an American. There's your small government conservative. These are the sentiments that took down Eric Cantor.
This is the God-honest reason the GOP will not accept any form of immigration reform. They dont want any immigration, period. Plain and simple, it means the end of white supremacy and they cant stomach that anymore than they can stomach a black president. The GOP establishment knows better, even if just for the reason of keeping a steady supply of cheap labor. But make no mistake, the base would rather America become a police state, including taking away the citizenship rights of every child from now on.
Decent Americans, who still believe in the the spirit of the Statue of Liberty and jus soli, have to face facts: there is no compromise on this issue. Republicans must be thrown out of office and immigration reform, including citizenship, must be imposed on them no matter what their objections are.
