Another in a long line of schemes to blur, and eventually eliminate citizenship! The traitors, having allowed tens of millions of invaders to ignore our laws, will in time erase our sovereignty and fold us into the new world order. Beginning with the Reagan amnesty and the largely unpublished mini-amnesties that followed, the so-called government/judicial system has consistently given illegal aliens billions of dollars in “entitlements” and legal status by not enforcing the laws that protect citizens from the ongoing invasion. (Case in point, Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution). And the ongoing taxpayer ripoff, the anchor baby scam, now being used by tourists along with illegal aliens, to make the children citizens, got that, everybody except the citizens and this fake government decides who becomes a citizen. The words citizen or citizens appear 21 times in the constitution. Expect those words to be replaced, so as to not offend noncitizens. So fellow citizens, get used to being equal with illegal aliens, or you can take your country back.
