ILLEGAL ALIENS ARE NOT DESCENDENTS OF SLAVES. The 14th Amendment was written specifically for descendents of slaves and children of Illegal Aliens are not descendents of slaves and it do not apply to them except by mistake of our Government. Supreme court has never rule on the issue. When the 14th Amendment was written we did not have immigration law and when there are no immigration law there can be no Illegal Aliens. At some point, as people began to immigrate to this country it become necessary to control immigration and Ellis Island was put in place to register immigrants and all that came to Ellis Island and applied for entry was not allow to enter. Statue of Liberty was welcoming immigrants when we needed them for nation building, but we are no longer into nation building but in nation survival and control immigration is needed. She is no longer a beacon for the poor except in cases of refugees and political asylum. Statue of Liberty has served her purpose and now it just a monument or reminder. If we want to help hard working people who only come here for a better life, we dont do it by letting everyone who want to come here and receive citizenship. We need to help Mexico since the majority of Illegal Aliens are from Mexico, to rid the country of corrupt Government, drug cartels and help them develop their abundance of natural resources and distribute the wealth by creating jobs to keep their hard working people home. We start by deporting those here illegally by enforcing our immigration laws against business their hire them illegally. They are already leaving by the millions and taking their anchor babies with them since there citizens of Mexico also. What kind of parent would place them in foster care when the leave or deported? More than 1.6 million American children are homeless with their parents. When we allow 20 million Illegal Aliens to remain in the country with the promise of amnesty we are contributing to the destruction of Mexico who need its hard working people and young for their military. Mexico, with its natural resources, is more than economically capable of taking care of its own. Mexicos unemployment rate is at a record high of 4.5% and it is low wages that bring them here but he cost of living there is comparable. If we need immigration reform let do it so Mexicans will want to go home and not come here. I dont want to jump the fence and go to Mexico?
