    This is a long long long long overdue act and it needs to get passed. Too bad Congressman Deal waited until the Democrats took Congress to introduice it. Basically it ends the bastardized interpretation of the 14th amendment that allows citizenship to the children of illegal aliens and creating the quote/unquote anchor babies! Citizenship given to non-Americans should be privilege not a right! I like this law!

    We probably should have done this a long time ago. The question now is whether or not this will actually become law. I imagine there will be some haggling and changes made if it is to become law. For one, I think if you are born in the US, you should have an opportunity to become a citizen. However, I think that it should be in the form of dual citizenship and only when you come of age (an adult). It will be interesting to see where this goes.

    Good law. The only reason it didn't happen earlier is because there were Reps AND Dems in charge for too long, and all they both did was butt heads, not really caring about good policy but caring more about who voted for what.

    I think it's a good idea. Also, if the baby is born in a US hospital, and it's parents are illegal aliens, I think when the baby is discharged from the hospital we should give all three of them a free ride back to the boarder and promptly expelled.

    This is insane. We are looking at a bill. To ban something, that is not legal in the first place. They have the American people chasing their proverbial tails.

    Such is the legal process. Close the 'loophole', let's move on.

    NOT TRUE! Read the 14th Amendment and then come back to us!
