Republicans want to review the Fourteenth Amendment. This Fourteenth Amendment pertains to automatically giving citizenship to people who are born in the United States. Some leading Republicans are joining a push to reconsider the constitutional amendment that grants citizenship to people born in the United States. Some of the Republicans include Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Jon Kyle, Jeff Sessions, and Lindsey Graham.
The Fourteenth Amendment was adopted in 1868 as one of the Reconstruction Amendments. It overruled the 1857 Dred Scott vs. Sanford decision that Blacks could not be citizens of the United States. The Fourteenth Amendment provides equal protection for all people and was used to dismantle racial segregation in the United States.
“Section 1- All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States 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 United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” (Wikipedia)
Republicans want to review this section of the Fourteenth Amendment. Some Republican believe they know what the author’s meant when they said all people born in the United States are United States citizens. The Republicans want to prove this does not mean illegal aliens can have children in this country and those children are citizens of the Unites States. Some Republicans do not believe children of illegal aliens should be citizens of the United States even if they are born in our country. I have a problem with this belief.
I am a Republican. I believe illegal aliens should be sent back to their own countries. They came here illegally and should go home or go through the correct channels to become legal citizens of the United States. However, if their children are born in this country, by law, they are citizens of the United States. This is what the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution says and I do not believe in changing the Constitution to make it say what we want it to say.
Instead of changing the Constitution, send all illegal immigrants back home. Experts say there are nearly four million children born in the United States who have illegal immigrant parents. Who is at fault in this matter? I believe illegal immigrants are at fault because they came here illegally. I believe our government is at fault because they have done nothing about it. I believe people who lured illegals here and hired them for their own good are at fault. We are at fault because we continue to vote for the same idiots who are destroying our country and doing nothing about illegal immigration.
How do you send illegal aliens home if they have children who are citizens of the United States? Send the illegal aliens home with their children. Yes, even if their children are citizens. When their children are older, they should be allowed to come back to this country as legal citizens. As long as they have paperwork to prove their citizenship, they should be allowed to live in the United States. Why do it this way? The parents are illegal. The children cannot take care of themselves. Children should be with their parents. Once children are of legal age, they should be able to decide to live where they want to live.
We have this problem because our government have been telling us one thing and doing another thing. This illegal alien problem is talked about during election time, when elections are over; our government does nothing to help the problem. I am Republican. However, I believe Republican leadership is bringing this matter up now to help in the November election. I never believe what John McCain says because he has Democratic skin and is clothed in Republican clothing. He changes whichever way he can when it helps him get reelection.
What should we expect next from our useless government? They will try to continue to change freedom of religion to freedom from religion, but only when it pertains to Christianity. They will continue to take our freedoms away from us and tell us freedom was not what the founders of our country really meant when they gave their lives to make us a free nation. They will continue to make the government larger even though our founders were for limited government. They will continue to raise our taxes even though our founders were against taxes. Our government is a sham. Once we realize this, we will all be better off.
The Republicans want to review the Fourteenth Amendment. How many of us are citizens of this great country and have ancestors who came from other countries? I believe the answer is all of us. Unless your ancestors are American Indians you have ancestors who were born in other countries. If we continue to try to destroy our own constitution, even illegal aliens will no longer want to live in our country. Illegal aliens are here because our government looked the other way. Now your government wants to change the rules. Hey Republicans. Hey Democrats. The laws are there, why don’t you use these laws, and send the illegal aliens home where they belong? You can do it the right way and you will not even have to make changes to our Constitution.
