Rep. Duncan Hunter's on the right track, let me tell you, brother! Send 'em all home! Send 'em back to where they belong! Send 'em back to where they were born, hallelujah!
Meaning, of course, round-up and deport the naturalized by birth children of illegal immigrants. Who are, by law, citizens of the United States of America.
Rep. Hunter is a deep thinker, evidently. Because he tells us that being American is something in "our souls." Though I think he misspoke and meant to say "our skins." As in our "lily, pasty, mayo-white skins."
I guess Rep. Hunter has never read the Constitution. There's a thing in there called the Fourteenth Amendment that specifically guarantees citizenship to children born on American soil. (Even John McCain is technically a US citizen, though he wasn't born on American soil, but just to two American parents. Go figure!)
How retroactive does Rep. Hunter want to go on this issue? Why, I bet there's a passel of gray-hairs out there who are the children of early-20th century illegals who were born here, worked here, payed taxes here, voted here and assumed for their entire lives that they were Americans. Until now. Because it's not in their souls. Time to round 'em up and ship 'em out! Back to where they came from...America?

CONTEXTUALIZATION - Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment
“ Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
So, reading the above, we can only assume that the first time some pointy-headed Nazi Sheriff in Arizona (lookin' at you, Arpaio, you brown-shirted thug!) arrests and deports a Constitutionally-naturalized child of an illegal immigrant, he's in big trouble. Let's hope.
