Vitter quotes '93 Reid Senate speech on ending birthright citizenship
    Sen. David Vitter gave a speech on the Senate floor calling on Congress to end the practice of birthright citizenship, arguing that "no sane country" would allow it for the children of illegal immigrants.
    Vitter ended the remarks Thursday by saying he was actually quoting an old speech by Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., who now opposes ending birthright citizenship. Reid had slammed Vitter over the issue the previous day.
    "This is not my statement. Let me clarify: This is Sen. Harry Reid's statement on the floor of the U.S. Senate," said the Louisiana Republican, who is sponsoring an anti-birthright amendment to a human trafficking bill currently before the Senate. Vitter ended by saying, "Let me just thank Senator Reid for his prior words in strong support of what he yesterday called 'Vitter's stupid amendment.'"

End the Insanity
Glenn Spencer -- American Patrol Report
    In 1997 --- eighteen years ago --- the American Patrol Report posted an analysis of birthright citizenship by FAIR -- Anchor Babies and Interpreting the 14th Amendment. It included this:
    "Every Person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons." --- Senator Jacob Howard, Co-author of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment, 1866.
    The cowardly class that runs Washington is afraid to admit it, but for decades Mexico has been relying on anchor babies as a weapon in their demographic war on us.
    It is about damn time that we put an end to this insanity --- which is what Senator Reid called it.
