BREAKING: Judge Says This State May Now Deny Birth Certificates to Children of Illegals
In what could be a major turning point in the fight against illegal immigration, a Judge has ruled that children of illegals who can not provide sufficient documentation are not entitled to a birth certificate under the current laws.
This happened in Texas, a state that has massive headaches due to the influx of illegals adding unnecessary burdens to the legal and social welfare system.
Could this set a precedent for other states to follow? Only time will tell.
From the LA Times:
A federal judge ruled Friday that Texas officials can continue to deny U.S. birth certificates to the children of immigrants who cannot supply required identification because they entered the country illegally.
Though children born in the United States are entitled by law to U.S. citizenship regardless of the immigration status of their parents, Texas authorities have been placing significant barriers to immigrants who have entered the country illegally and are seeking birth certificates for their U.S.-born children.
In his ruling denying an emergency order sought by families, Judge Robert L. Pitman of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in San Antonio said Texas officials can refuse to accept matricula consular cards, issued by Mexican consulates, as a form of identification to obtain birth certificates for U.S.-born children.
“While the Court is very troubled at the prospect of Texas-born children, and their parents, being denied issuance of a birth certificate,” Pitman wrote, “Texas has a clear interest in protecting access to that document.”
