No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States."
Certain (most) Mormons in Mesa, Arizona, especially don't like that. They don't want babies born in the US automatically to be US citizens unless the babies' parents are (both or one?) are also US citizens at the time of birth. They have no choice unless the US Constitution is amended or they have a revolution (violent). The fact that this completely unconstitutional movement has come out from the very same spirit that put forth the earlier also unconstitutional Arizona law, should come as no surprise. That first measure is incredibly vague concerning what constitutes reasonable suspicion that a law-enforcement officer could claim a good faith effort pretty much no matter what he or she claims is suspicious. It comes from minds that just don't realize how easily nations slip into a police-state that always comes back to haunt the fascists.
I used to think how great the US was not in terms of its welfare state or job prospects so much in this regard as in its love of brotherhood from sea to shining sea. I thought how loving a mother is that she would brave the Rio Grande in her ninth month just to be sure her baby would be born into such an idealistic state. Well, I certainly know that the people behind these Arizona laws are not of that spirit at all. Theirs is the dark side. They are here and have theirs, so keep others out from that spirit of brotherhood. Keep them out so much that, that very spirit of brotherhood dies.
They kill it if it even ever existed for them, which I doubt.
