AZ Gov. Jan Brewer To Immigrants: Get Out And Take Your Kids With You

Watch the above clip, then consider this: Arizona's GOP has proposed a new bill that would deny birth certificates to the children of undocumented immigrants.
Buoyed by recent public opinion polls suggesting they're on the right track with illegal immigration, Arizona Republicans will likely introduce legislation this fall that would deny birth certificates to children born in Arizona — and thus American citizens according to the U.S. Constitution — to parents who are not legal U.S. citizens. The law largely is the brainchild of state senator Russell Pearce, a Republican whose suburban district, Mesa, is considered the conservative bastion of the Phoenix political scene. He is a leading architect of the Arizona law that sparked outrage throughout the country: Senate Bill 1070, which allows law-enforcement officers to ask about someone's immigration status during a traffic stop, detainment or arrest if reasonable suspicion exists — things like poor English skills, acting nervous or avoiding eye contact during a traffic stop.
Remember, the GOP and the Tea Party totally believe in the U.S. Constitution. (Except that parts they don't like, such as the 14th Amendment.)
