Score one for the GOP’s record as the party of mass deportations.  Apparently, trying to end DACA and deport DREAMers isn’t enough.  Now, Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Mississippi, wants to deport the US-born children of immigrants as well, according to the Clarion-Ledger.  As the paper reported:

Palazzo also said he would support changing federal law that allows children born to illegal immigrants in America to remain as citizens. Palazzo said he believes “anchor babies” should be deported with their parents.

Republicans have called for an end to birthright citizenship before — usually forgetting that such a move would require changing the Constitution and amending the Fourteenth Amendment, which grants citizenship to anyone born in the U.S.  But while those earlier suggestions would’ve ended birthright citizenship going forward, Palazzo apparently wants to strip protections from people who have been US citizens their whole lives, and deport them to the country their parents came from.
