LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles) – Well, it appears that Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is not only a self-proclaimed birther and an opponent of birth tourism (a.k.a. ‘anchor babies’); he is also against dual citizenship.
Case in point: Trump says that if elected president, he will issue an executive order that would revoke Superman’s dual citizenship.
While Superman has apparently renounced his U.S. citizenship in favor of being an honorary citizen of every country in the world, Kent Clark has chosen to retain his. That makes Superman/Clark a dual citizen.
“Superman can’t have the best of both worlds,” Trump said. “He is either a U.S. citizen or an undocumented alien.”
While many countries allow dual citizenship for its natural-born population, the United States does not formally recognize such status for U.S. citizens.
DES MOINES, Iowa (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina on Thursday reiterated claims made by her rival Jeb Bush that Asian women oftentimes come to the U.S. for the purpose of having babies, which then provide them with the rewards of health care, education and ultimately in most cases, future citizenship.
During remarks to the press in Le Mars, Iowa, Fiorina, who has had some momentum in the polls since her well-received debate performance earlier this month, asserted that “there’s an industry that has been set up in L.A. where Chinese women come over on a tourist visa and have a baby. This abuse has been going on for a while. We need to stop it.”
Asked if she had a proposal to fix the problem, Fiorina said that if elected president, she will issue an executive order requiring all women tourists — 13 years old and above– from China and other Asian countries to undergo a pregnancy test upon arrival at U.S. Airports. “Those found to be pregnant will be sent back immediately to their home country,” she said.
Responding to a reporter question, Fiorina said her proposal will not cost the U.S. taxpayers a single penny. The cost of the home pregnancy test kit ($15.99) will be collected from each arriving woman passenger whether or not the test comes back positive.
Fiorina did not address the issue of women tourists who become pregnant while in the U.S.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is about to get a dose of his own medicine.
Trump has been very vocal in the campaign trail about his dislike for immigrants and has called on the Department of Homeland Security to deport all anchor babies — children born in the U.S. to non-citizen mothers.
Well, Homeland Security came knocking on his door (Tower, actually) with a deportation order for four of his five children.
Except for Tiffany (daughter of Marla Maples), the rest of the Trump children are anchor babies, born to immigrant mothers Ivana from Czechoslovakia and Melania from Slovenia.
Trump’s own mother, Mary Ann MacLeod was born in Scotland which would technically make The Donald an anchor baby himself. Will he also get the boot from Homeland Security?
