JACKPOT ANCHOR BABIES: RUNAWAY FRAUD ON AMERICAN CITIZENS

Part 2: Degrading schools, communities and welfare
Every year, 400,000 pregnant women enter the United States legally and illegally to birth their babies on American soil. Their children become instant citizens and their mothers become instant wards of the American taxpayer.
From a reader: Dear Mr. Wooldridge: You can also add South Florida to your list. I work in “Labor & Delivery” as a newborn admittance nurse down here in South Florida. Women fly in from the Bahamas, the Caribbean Islands, Central and South America every day and delivery their babies at this hospital. Many use the same excuse - they came to shop and just happened to go into labor while they were here. Some even have their prenatal records with them! Most however, have no records and so we spend even more money on them doing prenatal lab testing. And for those with sick or problem babies - no problem. They get top-notch tax payer funded neonatal intensive care right across the hall. [Costs run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars]
“We've even had a Haitian woman recently say she came because of the earthquake - interestingly her first clinic visit here was documented three days before the quake. That is just wrong to say something like that!! They don't pay one red cent for their hospital stays and in fact, they sign up for WIC while they're here to receive free food and formula. The money they pay for the plane ticket here could buy a lot of essentials for the baby in the first year so I know most are not hurting for money. I feel like I'm in a foreign country down here.” Thank you, Nancy
This story repeats itself 400,000 times a year, year in and year out! And, only one U.S. Congressman, Nathan Deals of Georgia has introduced a bill to stop it. Yet, not one other of the 534 other Congressional reps will advance the bill.
In an excellent expose’ by Mark Cromer, www.capsweb.org, senior writing fellow, titled: “American Jackpot: Remaking America by Birthright Citizenship,” he explains phenomenon occurring only in the United States. No other country in the world allows it.
“Immigration limitation activists will be attempting a statewide petition drive to get the California Taxpayer Protection Act on the ballot,” Cromer said. “If passed, the measure will prohibit a parent here illegally from applying for any state or local benefit for a U.S. born child. Sweeping in its implications, the act would halt non-emergency medical aid— including the taxpayer-funded pre-natal care that has actually been advertised across Mexico and other countries by migrant advocacy groups—and would stop state welfare payments that illegal immigrant parents collect on behalf of their citizen-children. This initiative would also eliminate the lure of birth tourism.”
CALIFORNIA WITH FIVE MILLION ILLEGAL ALIENS AND $26 BILLION IN DEBT
“If passed, the initiative will go a long way to help balance the California budget and launch the long overdue national discussion of the actual meaning of the 14th Amendment,” said Cromer. “It would revitalize long neglected federal legislation on this subject of the kind proposed by Nathan Deal and many other members of Congress, none of which have ever been brought to the floor for a vote.
“If the policy of granting birthright citizenship was once an affordable misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment, it has long since become a massive entitlement that has collided with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 and the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 to create a perfect storm of mass immigration to our shores.
“In 1965, the late Senator Ted Kennedy pressed hard for the immigration legislation—it was the first bill he managed through to passage— that eliminated the so-called ‘national origin’ quotas that had been used to keep the flow of immigrants into the U.S. overwhelmingly European. Confronting critics of the bill who had the foresight to question whether it would result in torrential flows of peoples from impoverished lands that would strain America’s ability to assimilate them, Kennedy dismissed even the suggestion that the ethnic and cultural balance of the nation would be impacted and, in a portent of strategy employed by the proponents of mass immigration ever since, he accused the bill’s critics of bigotry.”
“The charges I have mentioned are highly emotional, irrational and with little foundation in fact,” Kennedy said about critics of the bill that raised the alarm it would result in a Third World stampede for American shores. “They are out of line with the obligations of responsible citizenship. They breed hate of our heritage.…”
From my own personal observation, I submit that Kennedy created the beginning of the end of the United States of America. He flooded this country with cultures of poverty, incompatible religions, linguistic chaos and an ecological destruction driven by an added 100 million people in 40 years. If his 1965 bill continues, expect another 70 million third world immigrants and their children within 25 years.
Cromer said, “The assessment that Kennedy was so utterly off the mark in his steadfast assurances that America’s cultural balance would not be dramatically tipped by the legislation is so undeniable that even unwavering liberals acknowledge it—and thank him for it. Just hours after his death, the Daily Kos website posted a homage to Kennedy by Dana Houle that celebrated his efforts to shepherd the 1965 immigration bill to passage.”
“When he was arguing for the act,” Houle writes, “Kennedy tried to assure critics that it wouldn’t significantly change the ethnic makeup of the country. Obviously he was wrong, and it is open to interpretation whether he misjudged the effects or concealed his intents.” Houle notes that in 1960, the foreign-born population of the U.S. was “only 5.4 percent.” Yet by 2000, that figure had jumped to more than 11 percent— a massive demographic shift fueled by an influx of immigrants of which, Houle gushed proudly “Only 16 percent were from Europe.” More than half were from Latin America.
“With every passing day it is increasingly clear that the allure of birthright citizenship has picked up steam during the past four decades, becoming a runaway train, a human locomotive fueled by Latin America’s entrenched misery that has come barreling across the Rio Grande to demographically explode in major American population centers and—with human densities in urbanized regions reaching critical mass—fans out into the heartland.”
Cromer continued, “The policy has created a self-sustaining dynamic on a fundamental level; encouraging immigrants to cross the border illegally and then rewarding them when they have a child here by making said baby an instant-citizen and therefore accorded all the rights and privileges afforded Americans; including welfare payments. Perhaps even more potent is their right, once they turn 18, to petition for their immigrant family members to stay in the United States. Thus these babies are far more than euphemistic anchors: they are quite literally paychecks and a membership card into the network of social services offered in America. This powerful dynamic is now pervasive across the nation, resulting in chaotic scenes as American citizens demand enforcement of immigrations laws while immigrants and their advocacy networks decry any effort to deport those here illegally.”
