Give Us Your Children

Looks like we'll need to update the words of the Emma Lazarus poem, "Give Us Your Poor."

A federal judge has ruled that an illegal immigrant carrying the child of an American cannot be deported until after she gives birth. The child, being an American, has a right to stay in the country, and deporting the mother would necessarily deport the child.

But the feds - ever mindful of publicity - are going to make sure the woman is deported just as soon as the child is born.

So now America - who has not been having enough babies to maintain her own population - is reduced to stealing other people's babies. Very nice.

But Steve how can this be, a fetus doesn't become a citizen until it is born.

Fascinating question, isn't it? :)

Certainly its good news in that respect - the judge recognized the humanity of the child.
