Basically, what this means is no more anchor babies. You have to be a citizen or a legal immigrant for a child born in this country to automatically become a citizen. No more wetbacks dragging their pregnant asses over the border, birthing their spawn on our tax dollars and then getting to stay here and suck up more tax dollars because the 14th amendment says they can't be deported due to a loophole in the law.
But, I don't see this passing without another "You assholes work for US!!" movement like the one that defeated the Shamnesty bill. Keep your fingers crossed and let D.C. know who pulls the strings around here.
One more thing. The last part says that it doesn't affect anyone born before the bill becomes law. Bullshit. Make this fucker retroactive to the last Shamnesty in 1986, and get rid of these sonsabitches.
