Texas Sen. John Cornyn backs review of ‘birthright citizenship’

WASHINGTON – Texas Sen. John Cornyn is the latest senior Republican to call for a review of “birthright citizenship,� amid complaints that illegal immigrants have abused that post-Civil War constitutional provision.

“We need to have hearings. We need to consult constitutional scholars and study what the implications are,� Cornyn said Wednesday, noting that about 540,000 people were caught illegally entering the United States last year through Mexico.

The issue of whether citizenship should be restricted based on the status of a baby’s parents has become the latest skirmish in the fight over illegal immigration and border security. Democrats have denounced the GOP push to review birthright citizenship as a shameful attack on innocent children, an effort to cherry pick from the Constitution, and an election-season tactic to infuriate conservative voters.

On Sunday’s Face the Nation on CBS, Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona, the second-ranking Republican in the Senate, suggested congressional hearings. “The question is, if both parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal behavior?�

Texas Sen. John Cornyn backs review of ‘birthright citizenship’

I have never been the least bit timid when it came to my criticism of Sen. Cornyn. I know there are a lot of Texans that consider him to be VERY Conservative. Those people lead me to think that they don’t know what a Conservative is. Not a REAL Conservative.

REAL Conservatives don’t vote for government bailouts. Cornyn jumped all over the first one, the Bush bailout. I don’t make these statements without some fairly serious research or sources.

Sen. John Cornyn is NOT a CONSERVATIVE

Cornyn: border fence won’t happen, just a “symbolic gesture�

Cornyn is for Bush bailout and whatever else Bush wants

Those are NOT the actions of a full time Conservative. Admittedly, on occasion, Cornyn does come across as someone that at least has a clue regarding Conservatism, but his past performance tends to force me to believe that he simply knows what the *HOT BUTTON* issues are.

Cornyn is a master of the game when it’s time to push those buttons.

The subject of anchor babies is one OF those buttons, but it appears that anchor babies, and a discussion into the Fourteenth Amendment may not happen at this time.

Feingold nixes GOP request for hearings into 14th amendment

Republicans may be calling for hearings into revising the 14th amendment, which guarantees citizenship to children of illegal immigrants, but it looks like they’re not going to get ‘em.

Russ Feingold, who chairs the Constitution Subcommittee, which would conduct the hearings, has “no plans” to allow them to go forward, his spokesman confirms to me.

And Feingold, in a statement, is reiterating that Federal immigration reform, not amending the Constitution, is the solution:

So, once again we see, even when a RINO tries to do something that can possibly be seen as the right thing to do, a Democrat that chairs the Committee puts a stop to it.

Russ Feingold is a MORON. I think that’s a fair assessment. With immigration reform, words that translate into AMNESTY in libber-speak, a Constitutional amendment won’t be needed, anchor babies will be NO MORE if their Mommies and Daddies are granted blanket amnesty and given FULL U.S. citizenship themselves.

That is the Dem/Libber solution. Why fight crime and enforce the law? Just make the crime legal and go on about your mission of killing the United States.

And if you need any further proof that Dem/Libbers are idiots:

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, a Democrat, said Monday on MSNBC’s Hardball that the attack on the birthright citizenship provision “shows how far and how badly this immigration debate is going…I don’t take it seriously, but it’s part of a very strong anti-immigrant sentiment.â€?

Anti-immigrant sentiment Bill? Really? You’re sure that’s what you meant to say?

There is NOTHING anti-immigrant anywhere in this attempt to do away with the anchor baby option that is being abused by ILLEGALS in this nation. Anyone that comes to America legally is eligible for U.S. citizenship. Those that come here illegally and exploit the loopholes in our laws are only abusing a system that needs to be brought up to modern day standards.

The Fourteenth was set in place to benefit former slaves and their children after the War Between the States, but today the Dem/Libbers want to give away U.S. citizenship. Are they going to hand out Social Security cards and FAT bank accounts too?

    This country has three factions trying to destroy it. First on the list is the Marxist Obama regime to include those members of congress who support him. Second is illegal immigration and a lack of border security that is ripping at our nations sovernty. Lastly Islam in itself, the radicals therein, sharia and all the dipshits that believe its a religion of peace instead of realizing its a cult born of terror waiting for its chance to destroy us. Anyone care to join in the battle?

    I’m sick and tired of A-Holes like Richardson referring to Illegals as Immigrants. Immigrants are those who came to this country according to the laws of this nation. There’s nothing wrong with the Immigration Laws of this nation and they don’t need to be reformed to suite a bunch of people from south of our border. Those Immigration Laws built this nation into the most powerful and prosperous nation on earth. Now, people who are in violation of those laws and their supporters are doing all they can to bring this nation down to the level of the third wold nations they still support.

    Two immediate thoughts:

    1. Opening up a Constitutional Convention scares the living shit out of me. If we open that door then it would likewise be open to all the raving flakes who believe the Constitution is a living document and needs to be radically changed.

    2. Who would investigate and background those persons challenged as anchor babies/families? That would create — mandate — that an entire new level of bureaucracy be created and my lord, how the government loves bureaucracies. I’m sure they’d rush each and every person to require backgrounding through committee in, oh, say, ten to fifteen years.

    It’s an interesting concept whose execution would be rampant with corruption, strife and incompetence.

    I don’t think that we need a Constitutional convention to address the language in the 14th Amendment.

    What we DO need is some decent judges on the bench to interpret the 14th Amendment.
