CAPS' Position Statement Supports Boehner's Call For 14th Amendment Revision
August 13, 2010 by Personal Liberty News Desk
House Minority Leader John Boehner has called for a debate about a possible repeal of the 14th Amendment to the United States constitution to prevent children who are born in the U.S. to illegal immigrants from automatically becoming American citizens.
His idea is strongly supported by Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS), which has recently published a policy statement entitled American Jackpot: The Remaking of America by Birthright Citizenship. In it the group explains how the policy—which is unusual among first-world democracies—is abused to alter the population size, culture and character of America.
The source quotes Edward J. Erler, a political science professor at Cal State San Bernardino, as saying that “it’s difficult to fathom how those who defy American law can derive benefits for their children by their defiance; or that any sovereign nation would allow such a thing.”
CAPS’ recent output also includes a video entitled Birthright Citizenship & Allegiance to America, which contains an explanation by Chapman University School of Law Dean John Eastman as to why the 14th Amendment does not in fact give the children of illegal immigrants automatic citizenship at birth. He says that is because “legal tourists here to enjoy Disneyland and illegal immigrants who broke into the country clearly do not fall under this blanket of allegiance-owing jurisdiction,” quoted by CAPS website.
