This week in the United States? Why US immigration laws must be enforced!

Could this happen in the US as we allow more mosques and more Muslim's to practice Islam under freedom of religion?? Perhaps, especially if we continue to leave our borders porous and open to all 'religions' and cultures. After all this is the goal of Islam, to dominate the world.

If we continue to allow our borders to remain unsecured the more illegal immigrants from all walks of life, including terrorists, will enter the US. If we continue to keep our borders open to Muslim's from terrorist countries and immigrants from Mexico and South America;we could end up with a greater number of drug smugglers, human traffickers, child molesters and other criminals in our country.

In addition, if we don't become more particular about who we allow to become citizens each year, we could see our country in the position of Europe and countries like France, where the Muslim population is becoming the dominate race,culture and religion.

This video shows how immigration in France has allowed for the Muslim population to dominate the government and rather than assimilating into society, the government is having to cater to an increased Muslim population. In the meantime, other religions such as Christianity and Judaism are not given this same privilege, but they must pray and practice their religion in their homes, churches or synagogues.

While our country is the land of the free; everyone who immigrated here through Ellis Island hundreds of years ago did so legally at the time. Since then immigration has increased and expanded to allow refugees from other countries to those seeking asylum in the United States due to persecution from their own government and the economic woes of those countries. The United States is a country of hope and people from all cultures and races come here to live the 'American Dream'.

Yet, if we don't secure our borders we will continue to overpopulate while losing our own culture and borders along with our security. This is why states like Arizona passed the new controversial immigration law SB1070, to help enforce federal immigration laws and allow more law enforcement to help Border Patrol capture and deport illegals who commit crimes in Arizona. Unfortunately, the federal judge Susan Bolton, ruled against the major part of this law which would allow all law enforcement, not just those authorized under 287g, to question the legal status of an offender. Now the state of Arizona is having to appeal this decision, while at the same time is raising millions to defend the law against the DOJ who filed suit against Arizona for passing the law, even though 70% of the country and at least 60% of Arizonan's approve of SB1070.

Therefore, as a sovereign country which respects all human rights we must also protect and defend those rights by passing and enforcing laws that maintain our freedoms, culture and borders. Those who seek citizenship in the United States must do so legally and we must be more particular about who we allow entry to our country. We can not continue to be a country of freedom and economic prosperity if we are inundated with illegals, criminals and cultures who come here to change our country. They must assimilate to our laws, our culture and our way of life in order to truly become citizens.

I am a second generation Mexican, my mother and most of her siblings immigrated to the US legally, either by marriage or by obtaining green cards. I recall it took at least 10 years for one of my Uncle's to finally gain citizenship, and now he is living the 'American Dream'. Those who don't want to come here legally and get in line like he did should be deported immediately and those who continue to break our immigration laws should be fined, jailed and then deported. Illegal immigration is costing the US at least $300 billion per year in medical, incarceration and legal fees. If our government continues to fail at enforcing these laws and appeasing those who come here illegally and legally we will lose not only our country but the 'American Dream'.

A fence separates the cities of Nogales, Arizona and Nogales, Sonora Mexico, a frequent crossing point for people entering the United States illegally.

The women already are in labour when they tumble over the tall metal fence and stumble into the most forgiving nation on Earth.

“I slipped and fell,” they lie to the officers of the Border Patrol, who then are required to escort them — indigent, prepartum and paperless, but endowed by the U.S. Constitution with the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of free medical care — to the Carondelet Holy Cross Hospital in Nogales, Ariz., just off Interstate 19, the highway that bolts from the bottomless desperation of Mexico into the sunlight of the American republic.

When this happens, about once or twice a week, Marco Saucedo is summoned to perform the delivery. The obstetrician is a third-generation American of Mexican descent, one of 11 children of a copper miner from the dry Arizona hills. His clinic is Ground Zero in the battle over Arizona’s “anchor babies.”

“Anchor babies” are the fortunate foundlings who become U.S. citizens the instant their soft little skulls clear the birth canal.

What I do not expect is to encounter a man of medicine who wishes the fence were too high to scale. In his disdain for the lifelong, irrevocable privileges accorded these automatic Americans, he is in agreement with most of his fellow Arizonans.

“The women come in at 30 to 39 weeks,” he says as we chat in his examination room, which looks upon the colourfully painted hillside houses of Nogales, Sonora, and the rusted scar that divides the sister cities.

“They’re already contracting, but they’re only dilated about three centimetres. So they’re not going to give birth right away.

“These mothers are totally illegal. If they’ve ever even applied to immigrate, they’re way back on the waiting list. So they pay some coyote, or somebody helps them put a ladder against the fence, and when the Border Patrol picks them up they say that they’re injured.”

“The idea of an anchor baby — that you can just come here and automatically have citizenship for your baby, for the functionality and longevity of our country — this is just impossibly wrong,” he adds.

“I think it would be nice if we could not give that baby citizenship, and tell the mother to go back to Mexico and apply like everybody else.”

“I’m an American,” Dr. Saucedo resumes. “I pay taxes. I see this absolute abuse of the system, and I know the ways it could be fixed.

“You can’t have a social program state where you expect the taxpayer to pay for everything and for everyone else to get everything for free. Having an entitlement mentality is going to be the death of this country.”

“Nobody sees the full cost of the illegal babies,” he says. “If it’s a regular delivery, that’s about $10,000, for me, for the anesthetist, for the hospital. But if there are complications and the baby has to be taken to intensive care in Tucson or Phoenix, that’s [as much as] $300,000 easily. And the mothers pay nothing.”

“What do you think about the President’s position on immigration?” I add.

“He needs to be impeached and arrested,” says the obstetrician.

The 14th Amendment, ratified in 1868, states: “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.”

The key word here is “jurisdiction.” Does that refer only to persons who legally immigrated and filed the proper paperwork, and to children born in the U.S.whose parents came here legally?
