STEVE KING LAYS OUT PLAN TO ABOLISH BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP

Rate this Entry

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), the staunch opponent of illegal immigration who is set to become the chairman of a key subcommittee on immigration, is setting his sights on the right-wing cause of ending birthright citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants. (Posted by ILW.COM Team)

    I hope they go for it. There is no chance the Senate will ever pass this.

    yes, but this is the difference between the Antis and the Dem, they have an agenda and they keep their words, what about the Pro??

    I view this as a great opportunity. Let's cut a deal with Stevie K. We will give him his Bill to abolish birthright citizenship provided he agrees to pass some pro-immigrant measures in the same Bill. The pros can then challenge the birthright part of the Bill in the Courts!

    Incredible that the republicans are going to put this guy in charge of all immigration matters in the house. That to me speaks volumes.... I hope the dems exploit that in 2012 to the MAX!!!

    I am glad that the biggest concern of the antis such as Steve King will be birthrigh citizenship...without illegal immigration, the antis generally go after legals and we will be looking at a situation similar to this....

    Having said that, we need to ask whether the US will be able to exploit the British stupidity and arrogance and take some of the businesses that will move abroad as a result of the new British policy, through reforms of our own policies such as visa recapture. Or are we going to let Canada, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and China grab most of it? My bet is that with idiots like Steve King, we will let the other countries take most of the British business.

    And even if Dems take back the control of house, nothing will happen unless we get 95% of dems elected as brave as Mr. Weiner. Dems had super majority in Senate (whose job is to delay everything) and they still have huge majority in house yet they are clueless. Simply Dems are cowards (but i understand its difficult to be house for everyone and i think its great to include everybody even if they are hardliner R's in democratic party) Reps dont have majority yet and they behave as if they already have.

    I believe this play in favor of Dems but I seriously doubt if anything gets by Dems either.

    I hoped but where is my hope?
    I believed but where did it take me?
    I played by the rules and it screwed me
    I dreamed and it was a nightmare
    I asked for change rather got changed.

    I think that's a great idea. I just hope the powers that be have the same insight and open-mindedness you have.

    We can all hope. Dont think it is going to happen. Boehner will not bring it to thefloor. The deficits willbe the focus and the battle of the budgets and government shutdowns will be the focus for the next two years.

    I would also go along with Steve King if they only count US citizens towards re-districting which as it stands now helps racist white people in states such as Arizona, Texas, Georgia and Florida among others by giving them an average of two extra districts for each state!
