Working for logical immigation reform based on a stable population, a recognition of the finite nature of our natural resources and the adverse impact of continued growth on our quality of life, standard of living, national interest, character, language, sovereignty and the rule of law. Pushing back and countering the disloyal elements in American society and the anti-American rhetoric of the leftwing illegal alien lobbies. In a debate, when your opponents turn to name calling, it's a good sign you've already won.

The Misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment

Most legal scholars agree that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution has been misinterpreted, and this has resulted in the practice of birthright citizenship. Lino Graglia of the University of Texas law school wrote in the Jan. 11 Texas Review of Law & Politics that the authors of the 14th Amendment never would have imagined their words bestowing citizenship to illegal or visiting immigrants. Graglia also said, "It is difficult to imagine a more irrational and self-defeating legal system than one which makes unauthorized entry into this country a criminal offense and simultaneously provides perhaps the greatest possible inducement to illegal entry."

Constitutional and legal scholars widely agree that the 14th amendment has been misinterpreted and this misinterpretation is encouraging foreign nationals to come to the United States in order to give birth. I'm sure you agree that Congress needs to act to rectify this misinterpretation.

Please support any legislation that eliminates birthright citizenship because U.S. citizenship is too precious a commodity to acquire while on vacation.
