How to Stop Birthright Citizenship
“Birthright citizenship has exploded into the national discourse. The issue is generating a lot of heat on the Republican side of the aisle in particular, because it threatens to expose the long-standing rift between the party’s base and its pro-crony-capitalism establishment. Unfortunately, in arguing that the 14th Amendment requires citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants, some of the more prominent interlocutors are promoting an incorrect understanding of history. The Wall Street Journal’s recent editorial on the matter is a case in point, and my good friend John Yoo’s NR essay repeats one of the same basic flaws,” says John C. Eastman at National Review.
Unaccompanied Minors Released and Forced to Labor on Chicken Farm
“The thousand-mile journey to the Texas border was supposed to bring the Guatemalan teenagers to a better life. Instead, it was the beginning of a terrible ordeal: prosecutors say they were fraudulently plucked from U.S. custody by conspirators posing as friends or family who forced them to work as virtual slaves,” the AP reports.
D.C. Carjacking Suspect Was in the U.S. Illegally
“A man caught by D.C. police after carjacking a woman in the Sibley Hospital parking lot on Wednesday is an illegal immigrant who had already been deported once. He also carjacked another woman earlier in the week in Potomac, Maryland minutes after getting out of jail. On Monday, Guaymar Cabrera-Hernandez was released from the Montgomery County Detention Center where he has been since June. The charges against him for that arrest are unclear. He then showed up at an Islamic education center in Potomac and violently carjacked a 38-year-old woman,” Fox5DC reports.
Trump Defends Immigration Plan
“Donald Trump again made what seems like weekly appearances on Sunday interview shows, this time defending a plan that would remove all immigrants who are in the country illegally. While critics say the idea is impractical and would cost at least $400-to-$600 billion, Trump said on CBS and ABC that the country is already paying too high a price for illegal immigration,” USA Today reports.
