Immigration Quandary- Racial Profiling or Border Control OR ELIMINATION OF THE 14TH AMENDMENT THREAT?
The birthright citizenship may be attacked as proposed by Senator Russell Pearce, the architect of SB 1070. This legislation aims at targeting “anchor babies” of those principally of Mexican descent and comes closely on the heels of SB 1070. The law is too nebulous for police to enforce and in some counties police have refused to do so. Furthermore, the law encourages alienage and nationality rather than criminality as the determining factor.
