    This bill would eliminate birthright citizenship for children born to undocumented immigrants in the U.S. Current U.S. law automatically recognizes any person born on American soil as a natural born citizen. Under the bill, only children with at least one parent who is a U.S. citizen, a legal permanent resident, or an undocumented immigrant serving in the military would be considered citizens. Do you support this bill, if so tell your congress.

    I don't know what to think about this, froggy. On one hand anchor babies do seem to reward people who are here illegally. But on the other hand, why punish the children and subsequent generations for the sins of the parents?

    We're all (or almost all) descendants of immigrants here. I'm not sure I like the thought that we should have to prove our ancestors' basis for citizenship other than birthright. I'm wondering how many of us could.

    Not granting citizenship to a baby is not "punishing" it.

    We have a serious problem with illegal immigration. It costs us billions of dollars that are best spent elsewhere. Eliminating anchor babies is an easy step to take.

    I would have a hard time in penalizing a new born for the actions of the parent or parents, nor would I do it. If one or both of the parents comes here illegally, then THEY, should be liable for the consequences by law at the least. But that opens another issue, depriving the new born of one or both of it's real parents.

    When they come here illegal there shouldn't be a reward for it.

    This bill is sponsored by a Republican. It has 86 cosponsors, all but one are Republicans.

    Does anyone need another reason to oppose it?

    It's just plain common sense. Which explains why Dimocrats don't get it.

    How exactly is a baby born to illegal parents being penalized if we do not grant it citizenship?

    There is no penalty imposed on the child or on future generations as some other idiot stated.

    If an illegal has a child in this country, not only should they all be deported but they should be made to pay any and all medical costs. If they don't deport them until the kid has entered school, then the illegals should be made to reimburse the state, town or municipality for the cost of educating their illegal child.

    Illegal immigration imposes great financial stress on towns, cities, states and the entire country.

    It is a cost we can ill afford to bear any longer.
