Will Non-Citizens Govern Georgians?

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, February 24, 2017 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

I have two serious questions for you. The first: Will someone who is not a U.S. citizen be allowed to govern in Georgia? The second: Should any citizen of the United States or Georgia be governed by someone who is not a U.S. citizen?

Those questions may be decided this session. On January 11th, Republican Representative Brad Raffensperger introduced H.B. 33 to add a new section to three Georgia Code Titles: 36, 45 and 50, to authorize non-U.S.-citizens to be appointed to local public authorities that make policy, spend public money, levy taxes, or assess, impose, or collect fees or charges.

H.B. 33 would authorize six groups of non-citizens to serve in local government: (a) nationals of the United States, (b) lawful permanent residents, (c) aliens with lawful status in the U.S., (d)legal residents of Georgia, (e) active members of the U.S. military, or (f) members of the soldier’s immediate family to hold public office in authorities, school districts, commissions, councils and boards.

The IRS defines those terms as follows: An alien is someone who is not a U.S. citizen or U.S. national. A U.S. National is a person who owes sole allegiance to the United States. That includes U.S. citizens, and individuals who are not U.S. citizens. A U.S. Citizen is someone born in the U.S.; a person whose parent is a U.S. citizen; a former alien naturalized as a U.S. citizen; and individuals born in Puerto Rico, Guam or the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Confronting Deliberate Lawlessness

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, November 13, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

Congress is trying to pass legislation to punish jurisdictions that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws, but so far, they have not been successful. That leaves states in a dilemma about what to do when local jurisdictions openly defy laws and deliberately protect criminal illegal aliens from federal arrest and deportation.

Certainly, everyone should obey the law and, if a law is wrong, there’s a proper way to change it. But, what will be done about those giving sanctuary to illegal aliens who commit crimes, are arrested locally, and then, released by officials that don’t agree with the law?

In an October issue of USA Today, Republican Representative George Cleveland of North Carolina explained the situation this way, “Everyone says, ‘It’s a federal government problem.’ No it isn’t. The federal government is not doing its job, so it’s our problem.” Continue reading

Birth Tourism & Anchor Babies

Radio Commentary, 90.7, 91.7 New Life FM, October 23, 2015 – By Sue Ella Deadwyler

You’ve probably heard the term, “anchor babies,” and you probably know that it refers to babies born to illegal aliens in the United States. Also, they’re called “jackpot babies,” because the illegal alien who delivers a child on U.S. soil has hit the jackpot – citizenship for the baby, and benefits for the family. Pew Research reported 350,000 babies born in the U.S. between March 2009 and March 2010 to at least one illegal immigrant parent.

It’s not unusual for Mexican women to apply for visitors’ visas that allow border residents to travel inside a 25-mile zone in the U.S. for up to three days to shop and visit family, and, while they are here, give birth to an anchor baby. But a CEO of McAllen Texas Medical Center near the border described seeing pregnant women “about to give birth that walk up to the hospital still wet from swimming across the river in actual labor … dirty, wet, cold … here to have a child in the United States.”

But do you know the term, “birth tourism?” Birth tourists are foreigners who travel to this country to give birth to a newborn that receives U.S. citizenship and immediate qualification for a U.S. passport. Some estimate that 36,000 tourists from all over the world come into the U.S. every year to give birth to a baby here. Estimates are that at least 500 companies operating in China offer birth tourism services into the U.S. Continue reading
