Des Moines, Iowa - On Monday, several GOP thugs who support Wisconsin Presidential candidate Governor Scott Walker (R) aggressively attacked a union supporter after exhibiting a protest sign while Walker was giving a speech at the Register's stage at the Iowa State Fair. One of the GOP thugs wearing glasses can be seen reaching out to destroy and take a sign down that criticised his candidate, Walker.
The yellow sign was destroyed by the unidentified GOP thug, apparently he doesn't believe in free speech or protest signs criticising his candidate who is struggling to stay afloat to survive the Republican nomination for president.
According to recent polls, Donald J. Trump (R) one of 15 candidates campaigning for the Republican nomination for president is ahead in the Iowa polls and around the country for his anti-immigration views, stand and recent manifesto to end the U.S. Citizenship birthright of children born in the country to undocumented parents residing illegally in the country. Also, Trump wants to built a wall between the U.S. and Mexican border, make it a criminal offense for foreigners who stay in the U.S. with expired visas and would authorize mass deportations including whole families of undocumented immigrants with or without criminal records.
Governor Walker on Monday followed Trump's lead by telling MSNBC's Kasie Hunt that he agreed in ending the U.S. Citizenship birthright to children born to undocumented immigrants in the U.S., citing the need to enforce immigration laws. But, Walker seems to lack any knowledge that citizenship birthright is guaranteed by law and the U.S. Constitution, according to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.
In 1898, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment guaranteed U.S. Citizenship birthright to children born in the country or U.S. territory regardless, if the parents were foreigners (undocumented). (United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)) Even an act by the U.S. Congress or President today can't end a birthright under the U.S. Constitution.
