Taking the weekend off

I'm taking the weekend off from political blogging to attend my cousin's wedding in Manhattan.

In the meantime, may I suggest you read an article by Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce, the man behind the famous "Arizona law", SB 1070.  In this article, Senator Pearce makes an argument which I believe and have made before:

The part of the 14th Amendment which specifies that citizenship shall be conferred only upon people born in the US who are "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" means that children of illegal aliens should not automatically receive US citizenship.  It's a debate that I expect will finally begin to get some interest in this nation and perhaps we will be able to end the destructive practice of the creation of "anchor babies".
