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.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
