    Welcome back, Jim Roberts. it is always good to see a long time ID contributor back on the (revised) letters page, even when there is disagreement on substance, as is obviously the case here.

    The only point worth responding to in Mr. Roberts' anti-immigrant rant, posted on the November 24 letters page, is his comment about the 14th Amendment and birthright citizenship. Mr. Roberts might actually wish to read the US Supreme Court's decision in the 1898 case of US v. Wong Kim Ark. That is the latest and last word in the scope of the 14th Amendment.

    As I read this decision, it lists exactly two categories of people who are NOT eligible for birthright citizenship - children of foreign diplomats in the US and children of soldiers in an invading foreign army. Everybody else born is this country is a US citizen by birth.

    As I have mentioned in a previous article on this topic, the dissenting justices in that case were not happy with the majority decision. They felt that it would make it too easy for the unpopular ethnic groups of that time, "Mongolians" and "Malays", to become US citizens. But, as we can see, this narrow, openly racist attempt to limit the scope of the 14th Amendment was rejected.

    Are the Republicans and other right wing extremists who are now dominating our immigration policy so anxious to kick out children of today's most persecuted immigrants - Latinos - that they would try to overturn 100 years of 14th Amendment law, or even the 14th Amendment itself? The answer, evidently is yes.

    Some people still seem to think we can get the DREAM Act passed despite the 800 pound gorilla of anti-Latino racism standing in the doorway. I do not share that view.
