A new report out by Jon Feere of the Center for Immigration Studies entitled "Birthright Citizenship in the United States: A Global Comparison
" is absolutely outstanding. I have been studying it over the past few days, marking up the margins with notes, and thinking on a lot of the information in it.
It is simply a must read if you have any interest in the subject or are outraged at the continued abuse of our country by those who hold no allegiance to it.
Some of you may think that you are quite familiar with birthright citizenship and the reasons and methods that it was implemented, but I learned quite a bit that I wasn't aware of and I'm sure you will as well.
The report goes over the thoughts of those who put together the 14th amendment, how it has been distorted by the other side and does a global comparison of countries that continue to grant birthright citizenship. It also delves into scholars and judges opinions of the issues.
Exploitation of our citizenship and the methods that are used are covered, from "temporary guest workers" who have a child while here and then just overstay their visas to outright fraud in the reasoning for coming here in a ploy called "birth tourism". The ploy isn't even hidden, but openly advertised and our country does nothing to combat it. Package deals are put together including flight, hotels, birth of babies on US soil for citizenship and in some cases even shopping trips and tours - all under the guise of a tourist visa. All of this for just a few thousand dollars.
Chain migration is also examined and the gaming of our welfare, education and food stamp programs.
The best part of the report is that it provides a solution; It doesn't just point out the problem. It delves into the improbability of a constitutional amendment and points out that all can be clarified by congress itself, if the damn of the people and will is there.
I highly recommend that you download this free report or read it online. Then pass it around to all that you know, especially those who are outraged at the issue, but maybe don't have all of the facts. The report is 20+ pages, but it is well worth your time to inform yourself to the history, nature and solution to our birthright citizenship issue.

Yeah, nothing racist about your followers, Digger.
1) Because someone comes to my site, reads it and makes a comment does not mean that they are a "follower" of mine.
2) I do not agree with half the comments made here. Whether it is the ones blaming the Jews, the ones calling for the deportation or death of all white people in the United States, amnesty for illegal aliens or the ones calling me a racist.
3) At least I don't hold conferences where people are inspired to think of their race first, foremost and always. Like La Raza for instance.
Just for the record, I don't believe in "Jewish conspiracies"; just as I don't believe in "Italian-descent conspiracies" (Pelosi and Napolitano are a far cry from Arpaio and Tancredo). It's a person's character that matters.
