The idea for those who read that letter is that we should not vote for Bob Menendez. With your religious experience you know that far more dangerous sinners are in this administration today.

Rev. Alexander Santora, if your intention was to help the American people, and New Jersenians in particular, your lines of Oct 31 did not help.

Menendez is an amateur compared to those professionals.

Mr. Hugin has spent close to $20 million of his billionaire pocket to become another Republican senator voting against the welfare of the American People.

Interpreting the 14th Amendment

I read the article by Patrick Villanova about this issue. In it he writes the 14th Amendment, Section 1. “A child born in the United States is an American citizen”. Well, that’s Sen. Menendez’s interpretation of the amendment, if in fact it is quoted correctly. It’s probably the same interpretation that Bob Hugin believes. If that is correct then they are both correct. Case closed.

Unfortunately, facts can sometimes be nuisances. The correct wording of the Amendment is as follows:”All persons born or naturalized in the US and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the US and the State wherein they reside.” The text continues but the contention is whether illegal immigrants can be “subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” I believe that is where the Supreme Court will eventually have to decide.

Birthright citizenship has been a problem for the US for many years and the situation has gotten much worse over the years. In 1980 there were 30,000 children born to illegal immigrants thus becoming US citizens. Now there are 230,000. This is a magnet just as Catch and Release has become a magnet.

In the late 1990’s Sen. Harry Reid spoke against this practice. In the same way that Sen. Schumer, President Obama and Hillary Clinton spoke about stopping illegal immigration. It’s interesting how positions of politicians change with time.
