Last weekend, I discovered a true – no, an honest to God — real journalist. Her name is Lara Logan, and she was talking about her first part of a series – on illegal immigration – that opened Monday on the Fox News streaming channel, (I didn’t see it as I refuse to “pay” for news. If it’s news, why can’t it be presented just as freely as a committee meeting in the U.S. Senate?).

Logan was talking about her discovery of how much financial control the drug cartels (International crime syndicates) have over the entire nation of Mexico. But one thing she reported shocked me. 

She referenced a recent report from a 2018 study by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). 

I immediately found the current report written by Luis Miguel and posted Jan. 6 at

At today’s calculations, the study showed, “Figures indicate that nearly 400,000 anchor babies were born in the United States in 2019, a number that surpasses the birthrate of most states.” (Folks, that equals the entire population of Wichita.)

Of that number, as Miguel pointed out, it includes, “… 72,000 anchor babies were born to foreign nationals who were legally in the country at the time, such as foreign tourists, visa workers and foreign students.”

This number is amazing and terrifying. I have never forgotten what Minuteman Project co-founder Jim Gilchrist said back in 2015: “There are two ways to seize a country: With bayonets fixed and rifles blazing, or, by an incremental transfer of foreign nation’s populations into the host country (the USA) without limit.”

I discussed that point in an Oct. 18, 2018, column in the Leader & Times.

Today’s Socialist Democrats and their propaganda machine, the Fake News, Lame Stream Media, ignores these numbers and the financial burdens they represent.

“The figures have ramifications for taxpayers,” Miguel wrote. “As CIS notes, 67 percent of new mothers who are illegal aliens are either uninsured or on child support, compared to 42 percent of native-born mothers. Beyond hospital costs, illegal-alien mothers are more likely than their citizen counterparts to rely on taxpayer-funded welfare programs to sustain their children.”

Besides how much the millions of dollars illegal immigrants weigh on Americans’ tax burdens, there is also the cultural influence.

“One of the most obvious and enduring impacts of immigration occurs through immigrants’ children,” Miguel continued. “Long after immigrants pass on, their descendants will continue to shape the political, economic and cultural life in the receiving society.”

Of course, leftists always scream that the 14th Amendment guarantees every person born in the United States is an American. 

That’s malarkey.

The 14th states, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”

The 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868, and “ … was not meant to confer citizenship upon everyone and anyone born in the United States,” Miguel wrote.

That is because following the Civil War, Congress passed a Civil Rights Act to guarantee citizenship for blacks. That “act was reworked (into) the 14th Amendment because its supporters felt that a mere law did not carry sufficient legal weight to withstand opposition.”

Subsequently, the key words added were, “ … and not be subject to any foreign power.” Those words, according to Miguel, are, “a principle that has traditionally been understood and codified in American law.”

For instance: “U.S. law presently prohibits citizenship being granted to babies born in America to foreign heads of state, foreign ambassadors, and foreign prisoners – and that restriction has never been found unconstitutional.”

Miguel’s article pointed out “Congress has the power to establish rules of naturalization under Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution. If it wants to, Congress can put an end to birthright citizenship.”

But here is the rub: Socialist Democrats and their Joseph Goebbels’ media arm don’t want any restriction on illegal immigration.

It begs the question, “Why?”

There are numerous reasons, but the main one is that a majority of illegal immigrants, which come across the southern border, are from Mexico, Central America and South America. Most are poor and looking for a better life.

And, oh boy, Socialist Democrats offer just that. They make the immigrants’ lives better in every way possible. Some say even better than natural-born citizens and immigrants who became American citizens the legal way.

These poor people are given free health care, free education, free food, some get free housing or reduced-rent homes, free utilities, released from jail with no-bail, no deportations from sanctuary cities or states after being arrested for crimes, driver’s licenses and even the right to vote in some places. 

Who else are they going to vote for? The party that gives them free, free, free and more free. 

And why do the Socialist Democrats give away all your tax dollars? Because they can’t win at the ballot box with their current policies, ideas and radical agenda. They need more people who want “free” to vote for them.

The majority of today’s voters don’t want any part of the “nothing stew” Dems are serving, especially after they won a majority in the House of Representatives in 2018.

Since they took over the House and elected crazy, old-bones Pelosi to House Speaker again, the Dems have done zero to improve your life or your family’s life. 


For 12 months, Pelosi has served the American people nothing but a caldron full of tasteless boiling water with an old bare cow bone in it with no spices, no veggies and no meat – a “Nothing Stew.”

What’s really sad is the Dems want illegal immigrants only for their votes. Pelosi and her ilk care nothing about them, just like Blacks, Asians, Hispanics, Middle Easterners, Indians, Africans, etc. They only want their votes. 

Then those same Democrats will handcuff the poor to the government trough where they will eat, drink and die in misery and despair. Dems will suck all the self-esteem, pride, hope, individual accountability and thought right out of their souls.

The Dems key to gain votes is convincing all these people they are victims or totally hopeless (in the greatest country in the world) and only Socialist Democrats can save them with “free stuff” the rest of their lives.

“But you have to vote for us,” the Dems threaten. 

It’s all about power and trying every sleazy way they can to get power or keep it.


PS: Before you racism pimps start piling on, the father of my youngest brother was a full-blooded Mexican, working here from Mexico with a green card. Our family was happily mixed-blood way before the term “Rainbow Coalition” was even coined. Pregúntale mi hermano.
