    The 2011 legislative session will begin a few days early for two Arizona lawmakers who will be in Washington D.C. for the unveiling of legislation intended to end birthright citizenship.

    Immigration hawks Sen. Russell Pearce, the author of SB1070, and Rep. John Kavanagh will attend a Jan. 5 press conference at the National Press Club to introduce model legislation that aims to force the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in on the longstanding interpretation of the 14th Amendment that grants citizenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants. Lawmakers from 14 states who plan to introduce the bill will attend as well.

    Despite worries from the business community, lawmakers and others that the controversial proposal will turn the Legislature’s attention from more important issues, such as the budget and the economy, Kavanagh said he doesn’t expect the birthright-citizenship bill to be a distraction.

    “The budget and jobs will be the No. 1 priority, but we’ll still be able to deal with a lot of other important issues like illegal immigration,” the Fountain Hills Republican said.

    Legislators in Alabama, Arizona, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas and Utah plan to introduce birthright citizenship bills in 2011.

    Good, there is something fundamentally wrong with people entering this country illegally to have a child so the child will be a US Citizen and can then anchor their relatives to skip ahead of normal immigration processes.

    Angel, you're right. Even if enough Democrats side with the Rebublicans on this issue, Obama WILL VETO the legislation. The "Dream Weaver" has too many promises to keep and too many Hispanic voters to appease.

    But the States are fed up. The Feds are dead-beat assholes that can't get shit done. And costly as being sued may be, the states are already paying millions every year just to educate, feed, house, and provide health care for these illegals. BETTER THAT THEY FIGHT THE FUCKING FEDS AND GAIN THE MAJORITY OF SUPPORT FROM THE AMERICAN PUBLIC THAN CONTINUE TO BE FUCKED IN THE ASS BY THE CURRENT LACK OF ENFORCEMENT OF FEDERAL LAWS.

    It'd be GREAT if our Federal Government could somehow compromise on a comprehensive illegal immigration reform policy, but let's face it, that's just not going to happen.

    The Government really ought to do something about those illegal aliens. Landmines on the southern border would do the trick.
