1. Comment: Better Fish To Fry


Congressional GOP leaders have recently sought to question long-


settled common law on birthright citizenship - the doctrine of


jus soli - which guarantees citizenship based solely on the


geography of birth, with exceptions only for children of


diplomats and occupying armies (the exceptions and the common law


rule both date back to centuries before there was an American


Republic). Influential GOP leaders outside Congress have come out


swinging against this folly by Republicans in Congress. A member


of the Reagan White House


http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704164904575421222258065684.html

writes in the Wall Street Journal "Instead of amending the


Constitution to eliminate 'anchor babies' - the ugly term


opponents of birthright citizenship use to describe these U.S.


citizens - Republicans should be helping them become good


Americans." As Politico reports, she is joined


http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0810/40855.html

by "former aides to both Vice President Dick Cheney and President


George W. Bush - condemn[ing] the calls by top Republicans to end


birthright citizenship". According to news reports,


http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2010/8/10/891815/-Bush-officials-to-Dred-Scott-GOP:-Your-proposal-is-offensive

other figures including anti-immigrant TV crusader Lou Dobbs and


former GOP Presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Alan Keyes,


have indicated that the Congressional GOP leadership is going too


far.


Perhaps the GOP leaders intend only to further ignite the coals


of discontent among their base, to ensure better turnout in


November, thus possibly capturing the House. In other words,


perhaps this is strictly political, and in their hearts the GOP


leaders accept the common law on birthright citizenship. If so,


they are playing with fire here - taking the risk of upsetting


the stability that the clear jus soli rule provides - may have


many unintended consequences - insofar as Constitutional issues


are concerned, "when it is not necessary to change, it is


necessary not to change". Republicans gains in the next Congress


do not appear contingent upon using this particular argument, no


matter how anti-immigrant a tone the GOP wishes to cast itself in


politically.


However, perhaps GOP leaders are genuinely keen on re-examining


one of our fundamental national tenets. If so, they may be under-


estimating the effects of what will inevitably ensue - the genie


they thus unleash will not go back in the lamp. It is not a


coincidence that the common law rule on citizenship was re-stated


in the 14th amendment after the greatest cataclysm our Republic


has ever suffered - the Civil War. While another Civil War, this


time over immigration, may seem an impossibility right now, so


would Republican support for a review of birthright citizenship


have seemed just a few years ago. GOP leaders should pause before


going too far down this perilous road.


In short, questioning birthright citizenship makes neither


tactical nor strategic sense for the GOP. GOP leaders ought to


have better fish to fry.
