    Immigration problem solved without one dime of taxpayer money. Do they have the balls? (silly question I know)

    We should - but NEVER will. Do any of you have any idea how many people with money (and without) come and literally drop their babies here? I have lost count of the latino entertainers who have done this. I think ALL of their offspring have been born in the 'evil' U.S. of A. Do any of you know how many of them have come to live here? Unbelievable! While EVERY president of Mexico sits back and laments the exodus but do nothing!!! Mexico has lost most of their labor force and most of the elite. They are left with the drug cartels.

    The key word here is Congress. They may indeed have the constitutional authority to make such a change but if you're expecting them to actually do it then I say fat chance.

    Not if it means losing votes.

    Same with picture voter IDs.

    Figure the odds on them starting that.

    I wonder how many people who are for this, had grandparents or great grandparents and so on that were the first ones in their family to be born here?
    I also want to know how Health Care reform is unconstitional, but this is cool?

    anyone who says health care reform is unconstitutional doesn't know what the constitution is.

    but besides that.. the replacement for citizenship by birth is citizenship by blood. that worked really well in germany. :thup:

    A new law that most our ancestors did not have to deal with when coming to this country.
