RL article 1 No border baby citizenship. I vote no!

1) why should an innocent newborn child pay for his parents mistake,
when he or she doesn't have to?

2) in order to do that you would have to redefine what constitutes
a natural born US citizen.

3) anyone seen Obama's birth certificate?

RL articles 2-6 are fine.

Why should an innocent newborn child pay for his parents mistake?  HINT... It's not a mistake.

    Hint...I get it...

    oh, but it would be a mistake, if the laws were written and executed as they should be.
    if they illegaly enter this country, I see it as an act of war. an invasion. no, I'm not kidding.

    I get that they are just trying to make a better life for themselves and thier families.
    I don't blame them.

    this country was built on immigration "The Great American Melting Pot, Ellis Island,
    the american dream, streets of gold etc.."

    However there is a proper procedure for becoming a US citizen. all I expect is
    for them to follow it.

    am I out of line by expecting them to follow the proper channels, obtain a SSN#
    get a job, pay taxes, contribute to our communities rather than becoming
    a burden on our society, by mooching off of entitleties? and raping a social
    security/welfare system that they have paid absolutely nothing into.
    am I out of line, please tell me?

      If Trump doesn't win tonight I'm going to be really depressed.   Just in case.... Where's the Lottery Post rubber room?

      We haven't discussed the Senate races which has a huge impact for at least the next two years. Trump wants to make "America great again" and "clean the swamp in D.C.", but are the Trump supporters voting against incumbent Senators?

      Did you vote for Trump and Johnson?

        I have never voted in a presidential election in my life. I have been registered to vote
        since 2010 in my current county. I was placed on the inactive list.  I honestly didn't think
        that I was going to vote in this election either.

        Today, in spite of having to show my ID and sign a special form (address verification)
        I went to the polls and finally voted.

        I don't know if it was peer pressure at work, or this forum that changed
        my mind but I did it anyway.

        in a way I still believe it was mostly for nothing and a waste of time.
        but, in another way, I'm glad I did vote. I dont think one single thing
        will change for the better, but at least I tried.

          Are you describing the Americans on public assistance their entire lives?

          "am I out of line, please tell me?"

          Nope, I'm agreeing if you mean by ending lifetime public assistance will end any chance of illegals getting it.

                Good for you that you did vote! You had to show ID because it was your first time, next time you probably won't. But every state is different.

                It is not a waste of time to vote. You took part in a right that all who are eligible have. You have a voice in how the country will be run for the next four years. There have been some very close election results over the years for different positions. It is a cliche', but every vote does count. Your vote will have made a difference whether you may think so or not.

                You may have thought I would like candidate X to win. But you did not vote, because you may have thought it doesn't matter.  Now suppose several hundred, or several thousand, or several million, people felt the same way.  Guess what, candidate X did not win. Candidate Z did. And candidate Z and his policies  may have been completely opposite from what you wanted.  And now you and all those others are not happy, and will have to live with it. All because you thought, your vote does not matter.

                But it does. Your vote and all those others, could have made a huge difference. But now you will never know how your vote could have changed things, or quite possibly history.

                 But, you made a difference. You voted. Good for you!!!

                      I personally know illegal and legal farm workers and they have children born in the USA and the kids have the same rights every citizen has.

                      thats because they are considered "natural born" citizens.
                      I hate to say this, but our american generation is lazy. the reason these illegals come into this country is to seek work
                      to better enhance thier life. if americans would take the jobs on the farms, fishing boats, construction, food industry,
                      janitorial and custodial jobs, etc... then there wouldn't be jobs for them to enter this country.

                      laziness. and a thought process of I'm too good to work on a stinking farm, and I'm entitled to government compensation
                      is only one variable of this problem.

                      another variable is as follows. because they have children, our government has allowed them to sit at home,
                      smoke dope, get free food, housing, medical, dential, cell phones, computers, etc, all covered by the sweat off the backs of tax payers.

                      problem is, if they take a job for minimium wage like the types mentioned above they will lose too many benifets to maintain
                      thier lifestyle. who wants to become more impoverished? no one right?
                      besides, if they tried to do the right thing, and become citizens, demand minimum wage
                      there would just be 100 more on a bus to take thier job for less than minimum wage.

                      Are you describing the Americans on public assistance their entire lives?

                      yes, they are also a big portion of the problem.
                      but so is our government who have enabled them to be so.

                      I think that everyone who recieves government aid that can pass a physical (able to work )
                      should have to pass a urinalysis and be required to attend some kind of job/skill/ training. technical school
                      or persue a degree of some kind, to improve thier chances of getting a job. Government paid of course.
                      yes I am saying the Government should have to pay for thier education. I am also saying that they should have
                      to pay it back with intrest, upon re entry of the workforce. garnish wages if neccesary. give someone else a
                      chance better themselves for thier families and communities.

                      Nope, I'm agreeing if you mean by ending lifetime public assistance will end any chance of illegals getting it.


                      yes, that is what I am saying.

                      I'm not so cruel and ignorant to go with the John Smith mentality of
                      "if you dont work, you don't eat"

                      on the other end of the spectrum.

                      now I ask you.

                      how do we solve the problem of the extremely high technical
                      job market in this country? this market is so wide open we have to recruit people from
                      other countries to fill these positions. I'm talking about the jobs that our college
                      graduates aren't qualifed to preform.

                      ever wondered why companies have to call in people from another state
                      to preform a procedure on some computerized equiptment?

                      why the nuclear powerplant engineers travel across the country
                      12 months a year..?

                      hospital cat scan machines, banking software systems. etc...

                      how do we get this generation, motivated and trained up
                      to meet the demands of an ever growing/ highly technical
                      job market?

                              The NYT is now predicting a greater than 95% chance that Trump will win. They have already called both the House and the Senate for a Republican majority.
