Congress makes laws. The president enforces them. President Barack Obama is negligent in his constitutional duties.
More than 4 million children born in the United States are born to people living here illegally. Amendment 14 of the U.S. Constitution provides citizenship to anyone born in the United States.
Having a baby in the United States doesn't entitle illegal immigrants the right to remain in here. Nor does the U.S. Constitution allow children born outside of the U.S., but raised in the U.S., to remain in the U.S.
The parents, as the legal guardian, can and should be deported with their child. As an adult that child born in the US can return to the U.S. a citizen.
Immigration laws require all illegal aliens to be deported. Schools and hospitals know who these illegal aliens are and by law be required to report all illegal aliens for deportation.
Amnesty is not a solution. The 14th Amendment needs to be amended.
