Another reason to rethink anchor babies

Illegal immigrants caughtA conservative commentator and author asserts that it is time to rethink birthright citizenship.

A 19-year-old Honduran national who was part of the Central American caravan was able to scale a border wall and illegally enter the United States near Imperial Beach, California.

The woman was arrested with her 20-year-old husband and two-year-old son. She woman was eight months pregnant and later gave birth to the child on U.S. soil – which she said was a "big reward" for the family's grueling journey.

Conservative commentator and author Michelle Malkin argued that President Donald Trump was absolutely right about this anchor baby problem.

"He diagnosed automatic birthright citizenship as one of the biggest magnets and incentives to come here and break the law,” Malkin pointed out as a guest on the Fox News Channel. “And he's been asking Congress to do something about it."

Malkin also maintains that it is time to rethink birthright citizenship.

"For all the open borders trans-nationalists urging us to adopt the practices of the rest of the world, this is one of the areas where they're clinging bitterly to a strange interpretation of the 14th Amendment," the vocal conservative argued.

Malkin contends that it is not just pregnant mothers crossing the southern border who have anchor babies.

"It’s people from Kenya or Russia or Korea who wait until they're eight-and-half months [pregnant] to board a plane to get here,” she informed. “So, it's not something that just affects the border – it's not just something that a wall will fix."

Malkin lamented that unfortunately, people in both parties do not want to address this controversial issue.
