(Adobo Chronicles) At least three (some may argue four) of Donald Trump’s five children are ‘Anchor Babies’ and could face deportation by ICE under Trump’s own immigration proposal. — Wrong!
While it is true, Mr. Trump’s first wife Ivana was born what’s now the Czech Republic, was living in Canada until at least 1976 and did not become a U.S. Citizen until 1988 and that: Donald Trump, Jr was born in 1977 Ivanka was born in 1981 and Eric was born in 1984
It is clear upon further investigation, that my initial premise questioning whether or not Mr. Trump is the biological father of the three Trump children was wrong and I’m sorry.
I should not have made the claims that I had without more evidence to support it and for this I apologize.
Mr. Trump is the biological father of the three Trump children mentioned herein and as a result thereof I apologize for suggesting otherwise without more evidence than I had to support my initial claim.
As to Trump’s position on ‘anchor babies’ I find it to be constitutionally flawed as I have earlier written and again here. Trump can not support the position that he makes in law or fact.
As for, Donald Trump, Jr together with his siblings Ivanka and Eric, they are in-fact American born citizens just as certain as Sen. Ted Cruz is and is eligible to seek the presidency as Neal Katyal and Paul Clement argued in a well reasoned and sound legal treatise at 128 Harvard Law Review F. 161
Regardless of my erroneous argument earlier made here, Donald Trump’s ‘immigration proposal’ challenging the Constitutionality of birthright citizenship of babies born to ‘undocumented (or as some would prefer illegal) immigrant’ mothers remains seriously flawed pursuant to the 14th Amendment and 117 years of legal precedent established by U.S. -v- Wong Kim Ark 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
In 2010 I argued here when the State of Arizona was attempting to deny birthright citizenship to babies born of undocumented immigrant mothers, Arizona has:
“…reopened century old wounds, resurrecting prejudice, bigotry and hatred of others–was immorally shameful” and violative of the Constitution.
In 2012 the U.S. Supreme Ct in the matter of Arizona -v- United States, Case No. 11-182 declared Arizona statute ‘S.B. 1070’ unconstitutional.
(Reason) CNN Anchor, Attorney, Former Law & Justice Correspondent for ABC News and Brother to NY Gov Andrew Cuomo, Claims that ‘Hate Speech’ Is Not Constitutionally Protected.
Huh??? Cuomo may want to bone up on the 1st Amendment and while he’s at it, review: Snyder v Phelps, Case No. 09-751 U.S. Sp Ct (2011)
“Speech is powerful. It can stir people to action, move them to tears of both joy and sorrow and–as it did here–inflict great pain. On the facts before us, we cannot react to that pain by punishing the speaker. As a nation, we have chosen a different course–to protect even hurtful speech on public issues to insure that we do not stifle public debate.”
Chris Cuomo: May I make a suggestion? Don’t quit your day job.
- Publishers Note: Cuomo’s definition of what constitutes ‘Hate Speech’ is not necessarily mine.

(Newsmax) In a message by ISIS Jihadist Abu Ibrahim Al Amerki on ‘JustPaste.It’ Al Amerk claims, that ‘My Friend’ Pamela Geller, one of the organizers of Sunday’s ‘Muhammad Art Exhibit & Contest’ will be killed by Islamic State ‘soldiers’ already in the United States:
“The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah (division) in the heart of our enemy. Our aim was–Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send our Lions to achieve her slaughter. This will heal the hearts of our brothers and disperse the ones behind her. To those who protect her: this will be your only warning for housing this woman—Everyone who houses her events, gives her platform…are legitimate targets—Our intention was to show how easy we give our lives for the sake of Allah.
We have 71 trained soldiers in 15 states ready at our word to attack any target we desire…Of the 15 states, 5 we will name: Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California and Michigan…The next six months will be interesting…“
On Tuesday in a chilling denial of reality, White House Press Secy Josh Earnest described the assault on the 1st Amendment in Texas as “an attempted terrorist act that was foiled…that authorities meanwhile are still looking into, what links if any—Sunday’s shooters had to international terrorism.”
Obama Administration claims its “Too Early to Tell” if the two Islamic Jihadist Gunmen were tied to Islamic State.
Riiight… Its a wonder the White House hasn’t called it an act of ‘Workplace Violence’
