Arizona- Spinning Off Into Outer Space

As reported in Time Magazine:

"Buoyed by recent public opinion polls suggesting they're on the right track with illegal immigration, Arizona Republicans will likely introduce legislation this fall that would deny birth certificates to children born in Arizona - and thus American citizens according to the U.S. Constitution - to parents who are not legal U.S. citizens."

In an attempt to deny these children United States citizenship, which, of course, they are guaranteed in the constitution. A blatant example of malice combined with patent illegality- the perfect Republican legislation.

And then, when the Supreme Court strikes down this ugly, hateful legislation, they will rail against the liberal judges who attack the will of the people.

By the way, while I am on the subject, let me remind people that this section of the constitution, in the fourteenth amendment, which was passed in 1868, was totally the product of government attempts to guarantee citizenship to freed slaves. The malignant right wingers who whine so loudly about it have no one but their racist, treasonous ancestors to blame for the fact that it is in the constitution at all.
