If they're against it, it must be good

The Texas Branch of the A.C.L.U is against Texas House Bill 29 which is trying to do *something* at least about the anchor baby scam that illegals are using to defraud American taxpayers.

It's hypocritically amusing to see that the ACLU is using it's 'love' of the Constitution to sway public opinion.

HB 28 would take away several state benefits from children born in Texasto parents who entered the United Statesin violation of Federal law. It is in fact also an attempt to set up a legal challenge to the current interpretation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The ACLU of Texas opposes HB 28 because it:
-Ignores American legal tradition and disrespects the Constitution
-Will unnecessarily cost the state of Texas money
-Punishes innocent children for the choices of their parents.

These are the same people who use the Constitution to force their brand of anti-American values down our throats no matter how much it costs -AND- they get our tax money for doing it. So I guess I can understand where they're coming from on the "cost the state of Texas money", since they'll be the ones sueing the state for whatever they can strongarm out of us.

I'd like to remind everyone that the original intent was to ensure that the recently freed slaves (of 1865) weren't discriminated against by the same Democratic party that has been using and abusing them ever since they've been in America.
Whatever happened to the Liberal view that the Constitution was a 'living, breathing document' and that 'it needs to change with the times'?
The Constitution has been changed before, and it will be again. This wouldn't be the first time an amendment was repealed for the good of the country.

It's time to look at modifying the 14th Amendment and deny automatic citizenship to those who's first act in the country is breaking our laws.

H/T to Murray

UPDATE- Here's the bill from the Tx Leg website
