A Reporter Tells Trump “Anchor Baby” Is Offensive. Trump Responds By Saying… [Video]

I don’t blame Donald Trump for reacting this way to a biased, skewed question like this from the Marxist media. You don’t have the right to use children as political weapons and human shields for a political agenda. Ted Cruz said he “absolutely” favors ending automatic citizenship to those born in the country, as guaranteed in the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. And here is what Mark Levin says on the 14th Amendment:

MARK LEVIN: [T]he Supreme Court has never ruled that the children of illegal aliens are American citizens. So the Supreme Court has never ruled it, even if they did, it would be wrong. The clause speaks for itself, the author of the clause made it abundantly, unequivocally clear, and let me add one other thing, let’s read the clause together, shall we? “All persons born or naturalized in the United States.” Let’s stop there. If it means what the proponents of birthright citizenship say, it would stop right there. All persons born or naturalized in the United States are citizens. There’s no need for anything else, but that’s not what it says. Then it says “and, subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” Now you have some slip and fall lawyers, some phony constitutional lawyers, they have esquire after their name, they come on TV, they go all over the place. Jurisdiction means geography. Jurisdiction has nothing to do with geography. Zero. It had to do with political allegiance to the United States of America. How do we know it? Because they said it. And they also excluded everybody that the left and some of the Republicans want to include.

Now here’s the good news, there’s another part of the Constitution. It’s Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4. Here’s what that says in plain English: “The Congress shall have power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.” Now, you know what that means? That means Congress, not the courts, not the president, not ICE, it means the United States Congress has the power to regulate immigration in this regard. And guess what Sean, in the 1920s, that’s exactly what it did. The 14th Amendment excludes Indians, that is Native Americans as U.S. Citizens, because they felt that they had an allegiance to their own national tribes. OK. Great. And I believe it was in 1923, Congress reversed course and said you know what, under the 14th Amendment and under this Article 1, we’ve decided to the grant citizenship, national citizenship to all Native Americans. It could not be clearer.

Both Ted Cruz and Mark Levin are constitutional scholars and represent a growing movement in the GOP to do away with birthright citizenship. Trump can afford the best lawyers out there and he’s going to challenge the stance on ‘anchor babies.’ Look at The Civil Rights Act of 1866, which was written in conjunction with the Fourteenth Amendment. It definitely alludes to the requirements for citizenship differently. In addition to being born on U.S. soil, it required that the children of former black slaves could not be ‘subject to any foreign power.’ That’s pretty clear and definitive. Children of illegal immigrants are absolutely subject to a foreign power – the one that their parents come from. Birthright citizenship needs to end – it should never have been allowed.

Donald Trump

From Breitbart:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump debated the use of the term “anchor baby” with a reporter at a press conference in New Hampshire on Wednesday.

Trump was asked, “You said that you have a big heart, and that you’re not mean-spirited. Are you aware that the term ‘anchor baby,’ that’s an offensive term? People find that hurtful.”

Trump responded, “You mean it’s not politically correct, and yet everybody uses it?” He then suggested the reporter give him a different term to use, to which the reporter suggested “The American-born [children] of undocumented immigrants.” Trump said in response, “I’ll use the word ‘anchor baby.’”

You know what is offensive to me? A solicited invasion across our borders to change the voting demographic of our country for political control. Now, that’s offensive. Not having your borders secure means you don’t actually have a country. You are not a sovereign nation. So, let the media and the Marxists be offended. Enough of the political correctness. I’ll close with one last quote from Mark Levin – no one says it better or more clearly:

Look, I have been looking into this, talking about this for years, long before this presidential cycle. Of course Trump is right, and Cruz is right, and Sessions is right, they’re all right. And to hear so-called constitutional conservatives trip all over themselves to sound like liberals, to rewrite this provision, and accuse those of us who actually know something about it, know the history about it, know the senators who were involved in it, know what went into it, know what was meant by it, that we’re the activists, that we’re the extremists. Look, if you want of a policy of open borders that anybody born here should become a United States citizen, you amend the Constitution. We don’t have to amend the Constitution, it says what we say it says, and by statute, going forward, prospectively, Congress can in fact say we want to emphasize to this federal government, to this president, no, you cannot make children of illegal aliens American citizens automatically.
