Actually, Asians have the highest incomes on average compared to all groups in this country. In Franklin County, home to 1.3 million, 60% of those on welfare are white, or at least those were the figures about a decade ago.

You are a nutcase, particularly given the statement about placing an American man or woman in jail that has a child with an illegal immigrant. You would need to totally re-write nationality law in the US for that to happen.
Also, the Supreme Court has been completely silent on the matter of children born on this soil and it has been historically assumed that they are entitled to American birthright via the 14th Amendment. A birth certificate issued by a US State or Territory is evidence of citizenship and is accepted as PROOF of citizenship.
Are you saying it is up to the supremes to make law ? What case has been brought before the court that they would have commented on ? Historically assumed , is that how the court sees things ?

Yes. Citizenship is defined by the federal government and only law passed/enacted by Congress control citizenship.

Have you ever read the 14th Amendment?

The first section:
"Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.~~~No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."~~~

Emphasis is mine.

For a good explanation, see http://www.americanlaw.com/citborn.html . I am not a lawyer. However, I see any law enacted by a state to control immigration as violation of the separation of state and federal powers. States in my view CAN, if granted power by the federal government, to enforce immigration law; however, they CANNOT define or ENACT their OWN laws to define or control immigration.

Just as how I see it. This AZ law scares me, and not for the reasons most populist conservatives would think.
