RawStory.com reports: Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) wants to deport the U.S.-born CITIZEN children of illegal immigrant (0 - 50 years old), according to a statement he made at a Saturday tea party gathering, the Los Angeles Times reported. After being asked if he would support deporting those children, Hunter said, "it takes more than just walking across the border to become an American citizen - it's what's in our souls."
AUDIENCE MEMBER: Would you support deportation of natural-born American citizens that are the children of illegal aliens?
HUNTER: I would have to, yes. It's a complex issue and ... you could look and say, 'You're a mean guy. That's a mean thing to do. That's not a humanitarian thing to do.' " Hunter added, "We simply cannot afford what we're doing right now. We just can't afford it. California's going under.
Hunter confirmed his comments to the North County Times, adding that he also supports House Resolution 1868, introduced last year but stalled in a House committee. The measure calls for the elimination of automatic citizenship of children born in the United States to illegal immigrants.
