Arizona's Next Immigration Target: Children of Illegals

Arizona's immigrant-obsessed politicians now want to go after the kids born here. Yes, that involves changing the U.S. constitution.


In the latest installment of something wicked this way comes, the illustrious state of Arizona is now targeting the children of illegal aliens in its quest to eliminate brown people from sight. They’re bringing back the term “anchor babies” with a vengeance, tagging the children of “illegals” born in the US. Arizona Republicans are expected to introduce legislation this fall that would deny children born to illegal aliens United States citizenship. Yes, you read right – they’re going to attempt to change the U.S. constitution. This is the brainchild (and we use the term brain loosely), of Republican Senator Russell Pearce, the lead architect of Senate Bill 1070, referred to fondly as the racial profiling bill. Going after children? Yeah, that’s a fair fight. Who’s next? Pets?
