Was Michelle Malkin an Anchor Baby

Was Michelle Malkin an Anchor Baby

“Malkin believes that the custom of granting automatic citizenship at birth to U.S.–born children of foreign tourists, temporary foreign workers, and illegal aliens undermines the integrity of citizenship and national security. She argues that the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, “originally intended to ensure the citizenship rights of newly freed slaves and their families after the Civil War, has evolved into a magnet for alien lawbreakers and a shield for terrorist infiltrators and enemy combatants.”

I find it ironic that Michelle Malkin, who was born to Philippine immigrants in Philadelphia, would be so vehemently against “anchor babies.”

She was a beneficiary of this concept. Her parents were in America on a work visa when she was born. She was automatically a US citizen by virtue of having been born in America.

Yet, she condemns the concept for others.

I understand concerns such as terrorism and criminals crossing our borders to do harm and wreak havoc within the borders of America. Yet, these folks are a minuscule minority. The majority of folks who come to America do so for the exact reason the Michelle’s parents came to America.

Michelle should think about her own heritage and fortune. She is exactly that which she rails against. She is a citizen of the United States despite having parents who were citizens of another nation.

  1. Michelle is NOT an anchor baby. She was born to US citizens!! You do understand that her parents were born in the Phillipines and the Philippines were an American commonwealth from 1898-1946? You also understand that ANYONE born in an American commonwealth is a US citizen. You also must KNOW ANYONE born to a US citizen is herself/himself a US citizen. (If your parents are US citizens, YOU, by default, are also a citizen when you are born, JUST like Michelle!!) Therefore, Michelle is a US citizen because her parents are citizens. I wish you leftists would do some research before you try to condemn a conservative who is smart, logical and in Michelle’s case, beautiful’!!

    • FAIL. Her parents were Philippine citizens. Not US citizens. You do understand that 1946 is not 1970? Do some research.

      Malkin was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Philippine citizens Rafaela (née Perez) – a homemaker and teacher – and Apolo DeCastro Maglalang, who was then a physician-in-training.[1] Several months prior to Malkin’s birth, her parents had immigrated to the United States on an employer-sponsored visa.[4] After her father finished his medical training, the family moved[5] to Absecon, New Jersey. Malkin has a younger brother.[6] She has described her parents as Reagan Republicans who were “not incredibly politically active.”[1]

      Oh, I have no allegiance to the Left. I do, however, have an aversion to bullshit. Malkin isn’t all that attractive. Her physical appearance is no antidote to her looney inanity.

  2. They were in the country LEGALLY! Working.

    What we talk about are people who come over the border to have a birth for the purpose of granting citizenship. Blur the lines all you want, keep the conversation at the most basic level in order to do so but it negate the fact it is being abused. China and Mexico have turned it into an industry.

    Doesn’t matter, the liberal agenda is going away faster then a fart in the wind.
