As Trump's World Turns: Anchor Babies Anyone

Image result for us birthright

So Trump doesn't believe babies born to undocumented immigrants should receive citizenship status?  Wonder if we dig deeper we find Trump and his party means, brown babies?

"Anchor Babies?"

Trump on the campaign trail in 2015/16.

The framers of the US Constitution clearly intended the 14th Amendment would address US 'birthright" issues. 
Constitution of United States of America 1789 (rev. 1992)
Amendment XIVSection 1
All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Take a moment a watch and listen to what some considered a more rational candidate and Trump opponent in 205/16.

These kids will have the right to live and work here, receive social services and when they turn 21, they will have the right to sponsor their parents for an American Green Card.

As we look across the ethnic and cultural spectrum, we wonder if Trump and his party will start to pay attention to a growing reality. The reality of well-off Russian women coding to the US to deliver babies.  

Intriguing and disappointing at the same time. Intriguing regarding the prospect some of the babies might one day follow Russian operatives in service to Moscow in undercover roles. Disappointing the GOP, conservative America, and Trump finding apparent issues with Russian women delivering babies in the US.

What differentiates South of our border people from Russians? Oh, the answer is so very simple. you answered the questions in your mind. If you didn't discern the difference you are not being honest even with yourself.

US Immigration.....So Easily We Forget (Especially On The Right)

Friedrich Drumpf was an immigrant from Germany, who wanted to start a new life in America. He would work odd jobs, trying to make something for himself. After trying to make ends meet in New York and failing, living in tiny immigrant apartments and living with relatives, he moved to Seattle, where he started his "first business, a late-night restaurant in the sleazy end of town. He did what he could to survive, learning to navigate the district's saloons, opium parlours, pawn shops, and brothels," according to the Daily Mail.

He would then open a hotel, catering to miners seeking gold. According to the family's biographer, the restaurant was decadent. A patron would advise visitors, especially "respectable" women traveling alone not "to go there to sleep as they are liable to hear that which would be repugnant to their feelings – and uttered, too, by the depraved of their own sex," he wrote in a letter to the Yukon Sun newspaper.

Drumpf would make enough money to return to Germany, but he came back to the U.S., this time bringing an immigrant wife, to start a family. They had a son, who would also marry an immigrant, who was born in Scotland.

They would have a son. His name was Donald Trump (his last name based on his grandfather's changed name from "Drumpf" to "Trump"" and who would eventually marry three times, one an immigrant from Czechoslovakia and another, another immigrant, this time from Slovenia.

Donald Trump, before you utter your next attacks on immigration, please remember where you and your family came from, please remember the hardships, the pain, the suffering your grandfather experienced as an immigrant, how the powers that be made it difficult for immigrants to survive then just as today, how critics attacked your grandfather trying to make a living and how he had to do things that your followers today would not define as "good."

You've obviously tapped in a large source of people who hate immigrants, but is this where you really want to take America, to promote the hatred brewing among people who have forgotten their own roots, who forgot that the Native Americans were here first, who forgot that America, as exemplified by the Statue of Liberty, "A  mighty woman with a torch, whose flame is the imprisoned lightning, and her name Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command the air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame. "Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she with silent lips.
"Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
...the same mighty woman who welcomed your grandfather, your mother, your wives, the same woman crying now at the hatred spewed. Unless you and your followers are Native Americans, we are all immigrants, we are all "illegal."
