Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

ANOTHER SIGN THE GOP HAS JUMPED THE SHARK

Rate this Entry

Lou Dobbs actually takes the GOP to task for their new extreme position on repealing the 14th Amendment.


I wonder if those nitwit wingnuts pushing for this would casually accept the repeal of the 2nd Amendment as well?

    First clear indication that anti-immigration tactic does not fly beyond the southern borders and Rocky Mountains...Mike "the Moron" Cox tried to win appealing to anti-immigrant sentiments...

    he went down in flames to an unknown....

    "those nitwit wingnuts"

    You mean 58% of the public? Actually, that number is just opposition to the idea itself--not accounting for what it might potentially take to get rid of it. If we were starting over with a new constitution I wonder how it would play out.

    What do you think about the legality of simply eliminating the ability at age 21 to sponsor relatives? Couldn't that simply be done by statute by virtue of Congress' plenary power over immigration and without any 14th A. or other issues? That would seem to be the more practical compromise.

    You don't have to throw out the good parts of an amendment when you amend an amendment of the Constitution. For instance, a new amendment could maintain the 14th Amendment except for how it relates to birthright citizenship, corporate personhood, etc.

    Birthright citizenship ain't the five freedoms protected under the First Amendment which some people hold most dear, or the Second Amendment which a lot of Americans hold most dear, Fourth Amendment, etc.--who holds birthright citizenship most dear? Not too many Americans think it's fundamental to the American Way based on how few even think it's a good idea.

    I think this is just political pandering by Graham. I'v actually saw this live on Fox news and Dobbs and Megyn Kelly are obviously not for it.

    This issue could be another issue that can divide the GOP further, hence backfire on them as a whole eventhough it can benefit a few of them.

    I've watched some of Graham's talking points as well from his interviews in Fox. To be honest, he makes some good points specially when he brings up other developed countries successfully transitioning from Jus solis to Jus sanguinis.

    However, it is quite obvious that the only reason why this was brought up now is the issue of immigration and like I mentioned it looks like just political pandering to me and unlike the multi-factorial reasons of other countries w/c transitioned from Jus solis to Jus sanguinis.

    Jack is as usual talking the legal mumbo-jumbo crap and yes also wants to reduce legal immigration as many antis want. If life is protected at conception by the constitution as many pro-lifers including Graham, birthright is protected by the constitution. It is very evident that some white people are afraid of becoming a minority in this country due to the atrocities they committed during the Jim Crow days.

    This is more political posturing by the republicans, THEY DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO DO THIS... they are going to ride out this anti-immigrant wave all the way to the election. Simple, if they continue to fan the flames of the american public with anti-immigrant sentiment they can get more votes!!! They know that Hispanics and liberals are not motivated to vote for the dems in November. They can not promise jobs, economic recovery...all they can do is more circus - Fear and Anger, that is all they are selling, and people are buying!! The are making sure that their base goes out to vote and this will keep them engaged!!!

    It did not succeed in Michigan...see the previous post. Cox made a big issue of supporting AZ but did not work did it? Next week Birther Nathan "the Devil" Deal will loose to illiterate Karen Handel in Georgia...The Devil has been a long time birther and a supporter of the repeal of 14th amendment. He of course has no brains. He should have argued that Obama's father was an illegal when the baby was conceived, and hence if the 14th amendment was not in place, Obama would have been an illegal alien...but of course no one accused tea party folks and particularly Nathan Deal of having any brains!

    This will be a very common scene if 14th amendment is ever repealed and if it is a Hispanic or Asian baby the government will spend at least thousands of dollars to determine if it is born to at least one illegal alien....

    Perhaps if they treated fellow Christian Hispanics with decency in Arizona and not try to repeal the fourteenth amendment they would have got more support to stop the mosque...

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100804/ap_on_re_us/us_ground_zero_mosque

    I think the best idea would be to try and build a mosque in Maricopa County, AZ, along with a pagan temple for white skin worshipping pagan whites such as Jan Brewer and Ed Pearce.
