    I'm under the impression that the illegal immigrant parents who have children here don't get deported.

    I don't know about it. If true, they should be deported, but their children should be able to stay with legal resident relatives if there are any...

    In this, those supporting a state law to not recognize such birth certificates are going way too far. This is CLEARLY a violation of the U.S. constitution which grants U.S. citizenship to anyone born in the United States.

    Don't like this, work to change to Constitution. However, unlike the other two controversial laws (which I support), I can NOT support this proposal. It is blatently unconstitutional.
    Personally I think we should go by the intentions of the authors of the 14th amendment. Which was to make the freed slaves citizens, not everybody born in the US. Why else have the Indian citizenship act of 1924 and the nationality act of 1940 that made anyone born in the US a citizen if section 1 of the 14th applied to anyone born on US soil? That said I do support an amendment to alter section 1 of the 14th amendment to only apply to the children of US citizens to be on the safe side. Sneaking into a country and birth tourism should not grant anyone a citizenship. I also support repealing part of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 that allows for the chain migration of relatives other than spouse or minor children, which would basically end anchor babies

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
