Congressman Kimble and Senator Graham Fight Against "Anchor Babies"

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham and California Congressman Jack Kimble have announced that they are considering a Constitutional Amendment to repeal the 14th amendment. The 14th Amendment grants citizenship to all children born in the United States.

The problem is that these babies are often born to illegal immigrants serving as an anchor to allow the family to become legal immigrants themselves. The 14th amendment which allows birthright citizen was passed during the second half of the 19th century at a time when there was not much immigration in the United States. Now that our borders are practically exploding with immigrants, it's time to stop this antiquated practice.

"I may introduce a constitutional amendment that changes the rules if you have a child here,” Graham said during an interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “Birthright citizenship I think is a mistake ... We should change our Constitution and say if you come here illegally and you have a child, that child's automatically not a citizen.”

Asked how intent Graham is on introducing the amendment, the South Carolina Republican responded: “I got to.”

"Talking with Senator Graham has convinced me that a Constitutional Amendment is the way to go," responded Congressman Kimble, "I think we need to go in that direction, but the process is rather slow moving and we need to take emergency action now."

When asked what those emergency actions should be, Kimble responded, "Abortion is not an answer and as a Catholic I don't believe in artificial contraception either. The only way to make sure that immigrants do not have children in this country as 3/4 of the states vote on the convention is to not allow sexually active women or women who have had sex within the past 9 months into the country."

Kimble went on to say, "I am perfectly willing to accept the honor system. I do not think we have to only allow women who are virgins or past child bearing age into the country, but that is certainly one way we could go."

“I'm a practical guy, but when you go forward, I don't want 20 million more 20 years from now,” said Graham. “I want to be fair. I want to be humane. We need immigration policy, but it should be on our terms, not someone else's. I don't know how to fix it all. But I do know what makes people mad, that 12 million people came here, and there seems to be no system to deal with stopping 20 million 20 years from now.”

"Immigration is a threat that previous generations of Americans didn't have to worry about. I believe in following the original intent of the Constitution, but I don't think we can always support the Constitution when it stands in the way of our freedom," concluded Kimble.


  1. Your comments fit right in there with Lindsey's- Good job!

  2. "Immigration is a threat that previous generations of Americans didn't have to worry about."

    Uh huh. Because, you know, we're not a nation of immigrants or anything...

    This is a joke, right? No actual Senator could be this asinine.

  3. If they want to be sexually active, maybe we could use them to help our brave sons and brothers fighting in Iraq and Iran. They deserve some R&R like we had back in Japan and these sexually active young women could be like comfort workers. Maybe even help recruitment if you got some pretty ones and it wouldn't cost the taxpayers one thin dime.

  4. If all illegal immigrants were only allowed gay marriage, anchor babies would become less likely.

  5. There is an extra benefit of the Honorable Rep Jack Kimble's career that is demonstrated right here by a certain commenter's reaction to his senatorial career.
