Children of economic migrants still culturally and emotionally part of another country should not automatically be citizens.

What appears to be a concerted effort by Establishment Republicans to bully GOP Presidential nominee-apparent Mitt Romney into choosing, on (probably fallacious) Hispandering grounds, Florida Senator Marco Rubio as his Vice Presidential running mate is culminating in a new (deeply flawed) DREAM Act proposal. This is apparently planned to showcase Rubio.
But instead, it may give immigration patriots a magnificent opportunity. The Hill reports:
Rubio’s bill could give a small group of conservative colleagues a chance to force a vote on ending birthright citizenship.
Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) has sponsored the Birthright Citizenship Act, which would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to consider a person born in the U.S. a citizen only if his or her parent is a U.S. citizen, a lawful permanent resident or an alien serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
Republican Sens. John Boozman (Ark.), Mike Lee (Utah), Jerry Moran (Kan.) and Rand Paul (Ky.) have co-sponsored Vitter’s bill.
Rubio’s effort to reach out to Hispanic voters could backfire on Senate floor, by Alexander Hill, June 10, 2012
The Birthright Citizenship/Anchor Baby issue is the jugular of the Treason Lobby’s attempt to swamp the historic American nation and convert the country onto a Minority/Majority footing. Without the current practice of giving citizenship to all babies born on American soil (unless of diplomatic families), the political transformation of the country would be drastically slowed.As a result, needless to say, any discussion of closing the anchor-baby loophole is invariably met with hysteria — from neoconservatives as well as from the Left.
