14th Amendment

CAPS TV Spot, New Website Promote Ending Birthright Citizenship

Californians for Population Stabilization will air a new TV spot during the Democratic presidential debate today. Designed to help Americans understand what presidential candidates mean when they talk about anchor babies and where they stand on granting automatic citizenship to everyone born on U.S. soil, the spot is scheduled to air multiple times on CNN across major markets in Iowa, South Carolina and California.

It starts with a baby

Although Section 1 of the 14th Amendment was ratified to ensure recently emancipated slaves were granted American citizenship along with its rights and privileges, over time, the Supreme Court has interpreted the Amendment to mean that most born on American soil receive the American citizenship.  The 14th Amendment does not grant citizenship to a child born of diplomats born in America.  Others, American citizens and illegal aliens alike who give birth to a child in America have an American citizen (birthright citizenship).

Bastardization of the 14th Amendment

The arrogance of Democrats’ calls for the president to invoke the 14th Amendment to by-pass Congress to raise the debt ceiling demonstrates their lack of Constitutional knowledge, but also their ignorance of the basic checks and balances between the three branches of government.
