U. S. SENATE CANDIDATE ANDY MARTIN PROPOSES TO ABOLISH “ANCHOR BABIES” AS A BASIS FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS TO CLAIM U. S. RESIDENCE
LEGISLATIVE EXPERT MARTIN SAYS ARELLANO CIRCUS IN CHICAGO MANDATES CONGRESS EXERCISE ITS CONSTITUTIONAL POWERS TO ELIMINATE THE PROBLEM OF “ANCHOR BABIES”
(CHICAGO)(August 27, 2007) Republican U. S. Senate candidate Andy Martin told a news conference Monday, August 27th that he is preparing a new federal law to prohibit anchor babies from providing a basis for U. S. residence to illegal immigrants. Martin expects to have a draft of the statute available by Wednesday.
In response to questions from NBC Telemundo, Martin stated that President Bush may have missed an opportunity to push an incremental immigration bill through Congress, instead of concentrating his efforts on passing a global settlement that failed.
“I think the president would have been better served if he had worked to isolate some area of agreement on immigration reform, and passed a limited law. Passing a statute that resolves all issues all at once is going to be virtually impossible. The more complex a proposed law is, the more opportunities for special interests and lobbyists to delay and derail the legislative process.
“As someone who has been immersed in the legislative process for over forty years, I know how to take action and I know how to make progress. I was an expert witness before the U. S. Senate 35 years ago.
“We are drafting a new federal statute, the ‘Anchor Baby Reform Act of 2008,’ and we will be releasing this proposed statute Wednesday,” Martin told media. “We think our approach will pass muster with legal scholars and, obviously, we are exposing our proposals to peer review. Few candidates have the experience and confidence to submit their campaign proposals to such searching examination.”
