Congresswoman says so-called anchor babies...nothing more than a "red herring" (pushes amnesty again) by Dave Gibson Examiner.com October 23rd 2010
Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) and Republican challenger Jesse Kellyâ€¦ were asked about the effort â€¦to end the policy of birthright citizenship to the children of illegal aliensâ€¦.
Kelly said that Congress could simply pass a measure clarifying the 14th Amendment to only bestow citizenship on the children of those here legally.
Giffords, then called the issue a "red herring," saying that passing such a measure was too difficult to even contemplate and the chances of Congress acting were "almost nonexistent."
Giffords then began talking once again about the need for a better guest worker program and â€?comprehensive immigration reform.â€? In other wordsâ€¦amnesty!
In another account of the debate Dist. 8 foes sound off on mine, citizenship Rhonda Bodfield Arizona Daily Star Saturday, October 23,2010 Giffords is quoted saying
"Instead of attacking people, attacking the Constitution, why don`t we just fix the problem?"
No law changes and no â€?attacksâ€? - aka inconveniencing of illegals â€“ what else can â€?fix the problemâ€? mean but Amnesty?
Giffords (NumbersUSA career grade D+) likes to pretend to be reasonable on immigration, but in fact she is a dedicated servant of the Treason lobby. (Her opponent has been classified by NumbersUSA as a â€?True Reformer" .)
What at first might be thought to be comic relief in the race has been supplied by ALIPAC`s Kelly endorsement sparks ugly accusations KGUN9.com Oct 22 2010
Some Democrats are accusing Republican challenger Jesse Kelly of having ties to white supremacists, after a controversial political action committee called Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) gave Kelly its endorsement
But it is not funny. While few AZ-8 voters are likely to be much impressed, Giffords is Jewish. The allegation is probably intended to induce co-religionists to further bolster her already substantial funding advantage.
Notwithstanding this, Real Clear Politics says Kelly is â€?probably the favoriteâ€?
