- My commute to work exceeds fifty miles but it gives me
time to reflect. It is 1987, and I am an obstetrical nurse working in the
crowded San Fernando Valley of California. Tonight I drive to my job in
"Labor and Delivery," knowing the scenario before I arrive. Eight
other nurses will battle through the night in this very busy obstetrical
unit. Our patients are 99 percent pregnant illegal alien women who have
broken United States immigration law to birth an American citizen child.
- This will be their families, entry ticket into the United
States. For them, no pesky visa applications and no waiting in line for
several years like so many millions that enter this country through the
front door. Pregnant Third World women have discovered that the only thing
they have to do is cross the U.S.--Mexico border. The Fourteenth Amendment
is their ticket.
- It is now seventeen years later and things have worsened.
The babies I helped deliver are older teenagers. When they turn 21, they
will be eligible to bring their family members from Mexico, Central America
and South America, i.e., chain migration on an ever-accelerating spinning
wheel. Whole industries have now developed around abusing the Fourteenth
Amendment. Pregnant Korean tourists come to the U.S. on travel visas to
have their "anchor" babies. Coyotes dealing in human traffic
are paid $1,500.00 to $25,000.00 per person to shuttle pregnant illegal
aliens across our southern border. Our politicians and elites wink at this
blatant law breaking and do nothing. The colonization of our country continues
with the cooperation of our government. That means your senator and representative
aid this illegal baby invasion. None dare call it treason. Most Americans
mistakenly trust their politicians to do the right thing. Congressional
members from every state betray that trust daily.
- The Fourteenth Amendment: It's a simple document, a constitutional
amendment drafted after the Civil War to assure that newly emancipated
black slaves would never be denied citizenship by the States. The drafters
had no idea that years later it would be used to make a mockery of our
immigration laws. Alan Wall, an American journalist living in Mexico states,
"An illegal alien can cross the border, have a baby five minutes later,
and that baby is automatically declared a citizen of the USA automatically."
- The illegal aliens don't have to go through any legal
doors. They are exempt from that. They are, in fact, rewarded for disobeying
U.S. laws by having their children granted automatic citizenship. In addition,
the happy family is entitled to welfare benefits. And, illegal alien parents
who have children born in the U.S. are seldom deported. That's why their
children are called "anchor babies" - they anchor their families
securely in the USA.
- It doesn't have to be this way. Most European countries
have done away with birthright citizenship because they experienced the
same abuses we are seeing. The Irish Supreme Court recently ruled that
immigrant parents could be deported even if they have an Irish child. "It
was becoming common for single pregnant woman, to come to Ireland from
countries outside the 15-nation EU, most frequently from Nigeria, to claim
political asylum," states Shawn Pogatchnik, AP writer. Ireland saw
a wave of immigration abuse and promptly put a stop to it. Recently, the
Irish voted to end birthright citizenship. Britain and Australia both changed
their citizenship laws in the 1980's for the same reasons. If you are born
in Switzerland you will not automatically become a Swiss citizen. Why should
Americans allow our country to be invaded by people who do not honor allegiance
to our laws?
- Allegiance is the key word. Senator Jacob Howard, co-author
of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment, stated in 1866, "Every
Person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their
jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law 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 or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United
States, but will include every other class of persons."
- The Fourteenth Amendment states,"(A) Persons born
or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof,
are citizens of the United States."
- However a proviso limits foreigners who have babies in
America. It couldn't be clearer, children of foreigners, aliens or diplomats,
who are subject to the jurisdiction of their home country, are ineligible
for citizenship. At the time the Fourteenth Amendment was ratified we didn't
have immigration laws. One hundred and thirty eight years later we are
paying for the misinterpretation of it.
- Congress has the power to step in and correct this wrong,
but don't hold your breath. There have been several bills dealing with
this issue and most have died in committee. Except for a few brave individuals
like Tom Tancredo of Colorado and Rep. Goode of Virginia, there isn't enough
chutzpah on Capital Hill to fill a thimble. Where are the Thomas Jefferson's
and Ben Franklin's when we need them?
- An important case, Hamdi vs Rumsfeld was recently heard
by the U.S. Supreme Court. Yaser Hamdi was captured during the Afghanistan
war fighting for the Taliban. It was later learned that he had been born
in Louisiana to Saudi nationals when his father was employed as a chemical
engineer on a work visa. The family subsequently moved back to Saudi Arabia
where Hamdi was raised.
- Hamdi sued the U.S. government for holding him in a Navy
stockade for two years. He demanded full rights of U.S. citizenship since
by accident he happened to be born here. The U.S. government wanted Hamdi
charged as a non-combatant and denied due process. Rumsfeld representing
the U.S. government didn,t raise this issue because he wanted to end birthright
citizenship but other groups saw the possibility to finally challenge this
fatal flaw in our immigration law that is wrecking havoc on our country.
- One such group, Friends of Immigration Law Enforcement,
submitted a 'friend of the court' or Amicus brief. They asked the Supreme
Court to address the issue of whether Hamdi should be considered an American
citizen at all, since at the time of his birth his parents were foreign
nationals with no fealty to this nation.
- The decision came down this week and just like the rest
of the elite establishment in this country the U.S. Supreme Court ignored
the issue of birthright citizenship except for a brief statement by Justices
Scalia and Stevens stating Hamdi was a "presumed American citizen."
- So, we live to fight another day. In the meantime, the
invasion/colonization of our country marches on. South Korean women can
continue to visit www.birthinusa.com and plan their very pregnant United
