Birthright Citizenship?

PowerLine ruminates a bit on the fraud called "birthright citizenship."

...polls indicate that a huge majority of Americans want to get rid of the “anchor baby” rule, and we can infer from their dissent in the Hamdi case that at least two Supreme Court justices agree. Congress could pass a law defining citizenship in a manner that gives effect to the “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof” clause of the 14th Amendment. The law would be challenged on constitutional grounds and the case would make its way to the Supreme Court. That would give the court an opportunity to reconsider its poorly thought out decision that anyone born here, regardless of the circumstances, is required to be a citizen by the 14th Amendment. How likely is that strategy to succeed? I don’t know, but I think it is worth a try....

So pass the law and get taken to court.  When (and IF) SCOTUS affirms its moronic Hamdi, ignore the ruling, or let "Tax" Roberts enforce it along with "Create Your Own Reality" Kennedy.

IOW, screw them.
