The Trump administration continues to drag its feet on the question of ending birthright citizenship.
Breitbart News reported on the present impact of birthright citizenship.
According to a 2018 analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies, approximately 300,000 U.S.-born children of illegal aliens are born annually
These children are labeled as “anchor babies” and immediately acquire American citizenship. They effectively anchor their illegal or foreign parents in the country.
Additionally, foreign tourists, foreign visa workers, and foreign students give birth to 72,000 anchor babies on a yearly basis. Like the ones born to illegal aliens, they immediately obtain American citizenship, as John Binder puts it, “simply for being born within the parameters of the country.”
In total, 372,000 anchor babies were born in 2019 despite Trump’s commitment to sign an executive order ending the nation’s “anchor baby policy.” Birthright citizenship acts as a massive magnet for illegal immigration, as pregnant women cross the border to secure American citizenship for their offspring.
To put it in perspective, more anchor babies were born in 2019 than the births in each of the 50 states with the exceptions of California and Texas. For example, 455,000 babies are delivered annually in California, while in Texas, 379,000 babies are delivered. These numbers are slightly higher than the anchor baby birth totals.
So far, the U.S. Supreme Court has never directly ruled that the American-born children of illegal aliens must receive automatic American citizenship. However, a number of legal scholars disagree with this notion.
A significant portion of leading conservative scholars contend that the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment does not grant mandatory birthright citizenship to the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens or noncitizens. In their view, anchor babies are not subject to the U.S.’s jurisdiction as the language of the 14th Amendment was understood at the time it was ratified.
Currently, there are at least 4.5 million anchor babies in America under the age of 18. This number exceeds the approximately four million American babies born annually. Further, these anchor babies cost American taxpayers about $2.4 billion every year to subsidize their hospital costs.
Without a doubt, Trump will need to run on a strong immigration restriction platform in the 2020 elections. The functionality of America as a nation-state is ultimately at stake. Should he win in 2020, Trump should make the abolition of birthright citizenship his number one executive priority.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
