Anchor Babies

No European country grants birthright citizenship to any person born on its soil. Mexico doesn't grant birthright citizenship to the offspring of foreigners born on its soil. I realize that America has a long and generous past history of extending this privilege -- but perhaps it's time to revisit the practice. It's not only about Mexicans, Central Americans,  but it applies to other immigrant peoples who show up in the US, unbidden - like Jorge Ramos at a Donald Trump press conference.

No matter how things end up, going forward there has to be a national discussion that leads to action on the matter of anchor babies.

There is a big move to bring persecuted people from the Middle East to the USA. While I am sensitive to their plight, you know that if they birth a child while they're on US soil, they will be on welfare for life. Think of Obama's shiftless African relatives that we've been saddled with, and whose bills the public will be paying so long as they - their children and their children's children live.  We can't separate the aliens from their American passport holding offspring.
