In seeking solutions to illegal immigration in the US, Republicans in the House are considering legislation to end the natural birthright to US
citizenship povided by the 14th Ammendment. They are also considering erecting fences along the Mexican border. A task force of party leaders has been
meeting since summer, and has seen the two options climb to the top of the list.

"There is a general agreement about the fact that citizenship in this country should not be bestowed on people who are the children of folks who come
into this country illegally," said Rep. Tom Tancredo, Colorado Republican, who is participating in the "unity dinners," the group of Republicans
trying to find consensus on immigration.
Birthright citizenship, or what critics call "anchor babies," means that any child born on U.S. soil is granted citizenship, with exceptions for
foreign diplomats. That attracts illegal aliens, who have children in the United States; those children later can sponsor their parents for legal
Several lawmakers said the U.S. and Mexico are the only major Western countries to have birthright citizenship. Most European countries have moved
away from birthright citizenship in recent decades.

Yippee! Do it, do it, oh please dear Lord, DO IT. I have long thought exactly the same thing. It is not right for people that are here illegally to
have kids and then just because they were born on American soil, get all the benefits of US citizenship. They are no more part of the US at that point
than their Mexican counterparts.
I see Mexican kids on my street all the time, very young, speaking, screaming and yelling in nothing but Spanish. I have met and know several Mexican
families and guess what language they speak to just born babies? Spanish.
Newly born children like this are still Mexican, come from Mexican families, and will still persist in putting up their damn signs in Spanish, right
in our country. God, that pisses me off, and some of you may remember my rants about it in my Foreign Language Signs podcast.
My vote is for both measures to be taken: Build the wall and END this rediculous citizen birthright for children born to illegals.
