Once again, we see elected officials proposing that the solution to the federal government's abject failure to fulfill its obligation (such as to keep the border secure) is to reduce or obliterate the legal rights of its citizens or residents.
There is little objective evidence on citizenship desires for as-yet-unborn children being the prime motive behind illegal immigration. I thought the primary motive is and always has been economic. This seems a spurious basis for the proposal.
In reading these proposals, I think back to some of Hollywood's post-apocalyptic movies -- like "The Handmaiden's Tale" (starring the late Natasha Richardson) and even "Escape from L.A" (the sequel to "Escape from New York," both with Kurt Russell starring) -- portraying the United States as run by religious fascists. Combine these movies' concepts with ObamaCare, and we may as well retreat underground, like the underground city in "Logan's Run" and all die at age 30. (Hey, there's cost control for you.) The English seem more attuned to the consequences of these forms of abuse; check out the recent 2006 movie "V for Vendetta," which starred Natalie Portman and featured Britain's Parliament getting blown up at the end.
Those who object to Islamofascism (or "radical Islam," if you prefer) and the human rights abuses under sharia should take note that the United States would be following the slippery slope in their direction.
