TeaParty Champions, David Vitter and Rand Paul, Jumping on the Attack Against Latino Citizen Children!

As we predicted, the attacks against Latino Citizen Children are coming fast and furious now! The Tea Party supporters of the US Constitution are now up in arms against it! They are rallying to take away citizenship rights of Latino US American Children. The ANTI newspapers writing about their charge against Latino babies are even abusively calling these innocent children "Anchor Babies!"
From the extremist right wing site thenewamerican.com reports: Senators Vitter and Paul Seek Closing of Anchor Baby "Loophole"
Tea Party Favorites Sen. David Vitter, R-La., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ken., are co-authoring a resolution to change the Constitution and deny citizenship to anyone born in the United States "unless at least one parent is a legal citizen, legal immigrant, active member of the Armed Forces or a naturalized legal citizen." According to a statement jointly released by the pair of lawmakers. They say For too long, our nation has seen an influx of illegal aliens entering our country at an escalating rate, and chain migration is a major contributor to this rapid increase – which is only compounded when the children of illegal aliens born in the U.S. are granted automatic citizenship. They say Closing this loophole will not prevent them from becoming citizens, but will ensure that they have to go through the same process as anyone else who wants to become an American citizen. Citizenship is a privilege, and only those who respect our immigration laws should be allowed to enjoy its benefits. This legislation makes it necessary that everyone follow the rules, and goes through same process to become a U.S. citizen.

For years, the halls of Congress have resounded with calls from several key GOP legislators for hearings into the 14th Amendment’s supposed grant of citizenship to children born in the United States who they believe are "illegal immigrants."


They say the anchor in “anchor babies” refers to the purported ability of children born in the United States to illegal immigrant parents to sponsor those parents in their request for permanent residency here. According to the argument, as citizens of the United States, those children have the right to sponsor the immigration efforts of family members seeking legal immigration status.

Is it true that citizens of the U.S. are able to sponsor family members who are citizens of another country seeking legal immigration status in the U.S.?

Dear Dee :

Keep the Good Work - You are like an accountant keeping the books of evil of these legislators and prominent republicans.

There will be a day of reckoning in the voting booths.

Thanks again

Vicente

Anissia,
Yes. It is true. There are stipulations. Vitter and Paul's argument is ludicrous because you do have to be an adult and 21 years old in order to sponsor someone.

Here is what the
Immigration Dept
says:
What is an Affidavit of Support?
An affidavit of support is a document an individual signs to accept financial responsibility for another person, usually a relative, who is coming to the United States to live permanently. The person who signs the affidavit of support becomes the sponsor of the relative (or other individual) coming to live in the United States. The sponsor is usually the petitioner of an immigrant petition for a family member.

An affidavit of support is legally enforceable; the sponsor's responsibility usually lasts until the family member or other individual either becomes a U.S. citizen, or can be credited with 40 quarters of work (usually 10 years).

The law concerning affidavits of support is found in Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) sections 212(a)(4) and 213A. The provisions are codified in Title 8 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at 8 CFR 213a.

Submitting an Affidavit of Support

The following individuals are required by law to submit a Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, completed by the petitioner to obtain an immigrant visa or adjustment of status:

All immediate relatives of U.S. citizens (which include parents, spouses, and unmarried children under the age of 21, including orphans) and relatives who qualify for immigration to the United States under one of the family based preferences:
First Preference: Unmarried, adult sons and daughters of U.S. citizens (Adult means 21 years of age or older)
Second Preference: Spouses of permanent residents and the unmarried sons and daughters (regardless of age) of permanent residents and their unmarried children
Third Preference: Married sons and daughters of U.S. citizens, their spouses and their unmarried minor children
Fourth Preference: Brothers and sisters of adult U.S. citizens, their spouses and their unmarried minor children
Employment based preference immigrants in cases only when a U.S. citizen or permanent resident relative filed the immigrant visa petition, or such relative has a significant ownership interest (5% or more) in the entity that filed the petition.

Would the illegal parents of a "anchor baby" be more likely not deported than if they did not have a U.S. citizen child?

Dee said...

Anissia,
No. Not at all. The aim of people like David Vitter, Rand Paul, and ALL of the ANTIs is to MASS DEPORT all those they consider "illeegals."

They just want to rid themselves of anyone they consider "illegal" and all of those are Latinos. They could care less about the Northern Borders.

Just look at what Sheriff Arpaio and his masked goons are doing. They routinely racially profile Latino Neighborhoods and they have their Masked Volunteers SWOOP DOWN on Latino Neighborhoods and Harass ALL Latinos in the Neighborhood.

Think about WHY they do that?!?! To RID Themselves and scare the HEXX out of ALL LAtinos in the neighborhood. THey don't want them to Vote! They want them to live in Fear! Regardless if they are Citizens and have EVERY RIGHT TO VOTE!

Ask yourselves, why do these Volunteer Goons volunteer to Hunt Down Latino Citizens in their very own Neighborhoods!

Ask yourselves, WHY DO THEY WEAR MASKS? What are they afraid of??

It is Obvious! These Masked Goons are Racists! They don't want their Identities Known! This is just like the Masked KKK's in White Sheets! Deja Vu All Over Again!

So, the illegal parents would be deported. What happens to the citizen child? Does he or she leave with the parents?

Dee said...

Anissia,
This is what is happening today, especially in Arizona, in Maricopa County under Sheriff Arpaio's regime. Arpaio's masked volunteers routinely "sweep" through Latino neighborhoods and stop Latinos, asking for their papers. They set up, what they term "Suppression Sweeps." They are sort of like the stops some police set up to sweep up drunk drivers.

What usually happens is, if the parents do not have their papers, they are taken down to the jail. The citizen children are usually picked up by a citizen relative. The parents, if undocumented, are sent to an ICE facility and then deported.

This treatment is NOT happening across the US as it is in AZ, although the ANTIs would like it to happen. They want to Mass Deport all 11M here. This probably won't happen. There are many reasons why.

However, the issue at hand is -- and the reason for this post, the ANTIs now want to change the 14th Amendment -- Change the Constitution -- so that the Citizen Children in the Future, those BORN HERE will NOT be Citizens. I don't think this will happen. WE THE PEOPLE will NOT allow it to happen. However, WE ALL need to be aware that they are planning on putting bills before Congress to change the 14th amendment. We just need to be aware of this and stop them.
