Ironic story of the day: Michelle Malkin on “anchor babies”

Jesus’ General writes racist-in-residence Michelle Malkin a letter that’s too, too devastating:

One of the greatest dangers we face as a nation–a danger you’ve noted on your own blog–is the growing numbers of “anchor babies:”

During my book tour across the country for Invasion, this issue came up time and again. In the Southwest, everyone has a story of heavily pregnant women crossing the Mexican border to deliver their “anchor babies.” At East Coast hospitals, tales of South Korean “obstetric tourists” abound. (An estimated 5,000 South Korean anchor babies are born in the US every year). And, of course, there’s a terrorism angle…The time is ripe to reassess drive-by citizenship and what it means to be an American.

Indeed, it is a tremendous problem. Just in the last week, a poster at your own immigration blog called it a “recipe for social disaster,” and Rep Dave Reichert (R-Mescaline), reported that border area parking lots are becoming little more than large open air maternity wards, awash with discarded placentas and the wrappers of those nasty tamarind flavored candies from Mexico.

So how does all of this lead me to ask you to make a sacrifice? Well, it’s come to my attention that you too may be an “anchor baby.” Just a little over thirty-six years ago, it appears that a foreign sperm cell hooked up with a foreign egg somewhere near Manila and a Blastocyst-Filipina named proto-Michelle was formed. Within a few weeks, little proto-Michelle moved from the Philippines to New York City where she finally acquired “drive-by citizenship” on Oct. 20, 1970.

Now that this is out in the open, you must renounce your citizenship. Given your previous statements about anchor babies, it’s the only honorable thing you can do.

You can rest assured that your sacrifice will help your beloved anti-immigrant movement immensely, and that you’ll continue to have our eternal gratitude long after we demand your deportation.

Michelle, what do you have to say? We’re all waiting – anchor babe.

Update: I can’t resist stealing the photo The General posted of Our Lady of the Concentration Camps:

I’m not sure what’s the issue here. Because she’s an immigrant herself, she can’t make a point that a porous border doesn’t benefit the US?

June 5, 2006 @ 2:44 am | Comment

i think she’s hot.

June 5, 2006 @ 2:50 am | Comment

She’s an alarmist on the topic of immigration, and has advocated interment of Moslems. There is an irony in her hysteria over the threat of anchor babies if she is one herself.

Being responsible about the borders is one thing. Glorifying the Minutemen and advocating internment of entire races/religions is another.

Just wait until she hits menopause in a few years.

Michelle Malkin is a second rate journalist who’s only avenue into your home is through extreme politics and extreme political opinion. If you really want to piss her off, ignore her. She isn’t worth it.

Who is this? I’ve never heard of her, I get the impression she works for Fox, that right?

June 5, 2006 @ 4:55 pm | Comment

Chip, you must not be an American.

Yeah, she works at Fox and also writes a nationally syndicated column. Basically, your token female rightwing woman of colour-cum-village bicycle.

God, I don’t know [i]why[/i], given her intelligence and education, she can make arguments like how concentration camps were The Necessary and Very Good Thing for All of Us, and still sleep at night.

And that is [i]so[/i] a bukkake photoshop waiting to happen…

In the photo she’s saying: “Kiss the frog and I will turn into Sophie Marceau!”

The “anchor babies” thing is largely a myth. Minor children under the age of 18 cannot sponsor their parents as immigrants, so having a baby on US soil is not a backdoor ticket to US residency. In fact, I have taught a number of Korean kids with US citizenship and whose families had to return to Korea because they couldn’t get the proper visa to stay longer. A Turkish boy who recently came to the US has to stay here during this summer vacation because his parents cannot get re-entry visas. His father has been a small businessman here for six years, employing about 25 workers.

I do actually favor abolishing automatic citizenship upon birth. I don’t have a problem with families who come here to stay. They are true Americans no matter where they came from or how they got here. I do have a problem giving citizenship to children whose parents are here temporarily. The US passport gives the parents a sense of entitlement without any feeling of obligation or responsibility. One Korean mother complained to me that her son, who was born in the US and held a US passport, couldn’t get cheap in-state tuition rates. I explained to her about how US tertiary education is funded, and that I, a native-born US citizen, would have to pay the same rates since I was not a tax-paying US resident. Most countries require at least one parent to have permanent residency or citizenship, and it would make a lot of sense for our country to do the same.

Malkin is dangerous because people accept what she says at face value. She does very little research and her columns are not well written. But the right loves her.

And she is good looking but I suspect like many Filipina’s she won’t age well. And what ever you do, don’t call her a whore….she seems to really hate that.

Guess I’m not American enough (I am), because most of my news is BBC! Looks like I’ve found somebody to learn more about:)
