Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Arizona Rally Cry: Constitution be damned - Deport the Children

Rate this Entry

It appears as though the humanitarian branch of the Arizona Republican Party has found their next target for deportation: United States citizen children.



It has been reported that Arizona Republicans intend to introduce legislation this fall that will deny birth certificates to children born in the United States with parents who are not United States citizens.  Presumably this would include children born in the State of Arizona whose parents have Green Cards or have other lawful status but who are not
citizens, as well as the children of undocumented immigrants.



This is the brainchild of Sen. Russell Pearce, which they are tenderly
referring to as the "anchor baby" bill. Apparently these morons have never heard of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution which clearly states that:



ffice:smarttags">ffice:smarttags">

1. All persons born or naturalized in
the United States, and
subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the lace w:st="on">United Stateslace>
and of the State wherein they reside.
No State shall make or enforce any law
which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the lace w:st="on">United Stateslace>
;
nor shall any State deprive person of life, liberty, or property, without due
process of law;
nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction protection of the laws.


Simply ridiculous.

    This simply demonstrates that the American People would rather be entertained than educated. Correct me if I am wrong, if this eventually would be passed then it would create "statelessness" in children born here who have no US Citizen parents.

    Matthew, as always, I join you in congratulations on the fine legal work before the Supreme Court. I am convinced that the Court is a little tired waiting around for Congress to "fix" the "broken system," and it is going ahead full speed to interpret the laws with a bit more sense -- particularly with regard to the criminal laws -- I don't think EOIR comes close to understanding how to interpret the application of immigration laws to criminal laws. Hopefully, our next look will be at "distribution" of drugs which is held by the BIA to equal "illicit trafficking." We know that not all distribution is categorically "trafficking," so maybe that is next on board.
