How can Sen. Lindsey Graham expect us to believe he is serious about border security when there has been no attempt to resolve the question of “anchor babies”? A portion of the 14th Amendment states that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States, of the states wherein they reside.” It must be repealed.
We cannot build a fence high enough to prevent non-citizen expectant mothers from flying into the United States and giving birth to a baby who, under the 14th Amendment, automatically becomes a U.S. citizen.
Also, why is Congress considering additional immigration legislation when a bill signed into law by President Bush in 2006, which mandated 700 miles of additional border fencing, has not been implemented? If Congress is serious about border security, then build the 700-mile fence before drafting any further immigration legislation.
