Politics: Oh boy: Rand Paul wants to punish illegal immigrants’ children

  • DUDE. Do you not remember what happened last week? Despite, well, the 14th Amendment, Paul thinks that denying citizenship to children of illegal immigrants is a good thing. “We shouldn’t provide an easy route to citizenship,” he said. “We’re the only country that I know that allows people to come in illegally, have a baby, and then that baby becomes a citizen. And I think that should stop.” It’s an amendment man, AN AMENDMENT. He’s already said things offensive towards blacks and latinos. Who’s next? source

Politics: Joe Lieberman’s idea to strip citizenship from terrorists? Clumsy

  • It’s a sad day when Glenn Beck (!) offers a more eloquent defense of constitutional rights than the normally statesmanlike senator from Connecticut.
  • Commentator David Frum • Regarding Joe Lieberman’s suggestion that those who show loyalty and support to terror organizations lose their citizenship. Frum notes in a number of ways why this is a stupid idea, specifically because there’s already legal precedent for this (the 1940 Nationality Act, which was limited in 1967 by the Supreme Court and expanded slightly by Congress) and that legal precedent would mean that the enemy combatant would have to go through a lengthy court case. Bet Lieberman didn’t think of that. source

U.S.: Honoring the Binghamton dead through citizenship

  • The shooting happened at an immigration center. Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, both New York Democrats, introduced legislation that would honor the victims of last week’s shooting in Binghamton, N.Y. by posthumously giving citizenship to those killed that didn’t have it. Many of the people shot came from fairly diverse places all over the world. The citizenship would be considered honorary and would not affect the status of relatives. source
