Escaped Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman ordered his young wife, Emma Coronel, herself a U.S. citizen and daughter of another Mexican drug lord, to give birth in California to secure U.S. citizenship for his children.
The Daily Mail reports that the feds didn’t thwart the Mexican drug cartel anchor baby scheme: “Federal agents wanted to stop her, but had no formal charges to file so had to let her go free.”
Another immigration success story — despite the $5 million bounty placed on El Chapo’s head in Mexico, Coronel gave birth to twin daughters on August 15, 2012. Antelope Valley Hospital helpfully left the last name of the drug cartel spawn blank on their birth certificates, making it difficult for authorities to connect the dots.
Thanks to Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy’s Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, El Chapo’s daughters will be able to petition for an unlimited number of relatives, real and fraudulent, to join them in the U.S. due to the law’s chain migration provisions. A fabulously wealthy clan of drug kingpins could easily work over U.S. immigration law to attain legal residence in the country, while milking the welfare state for all manner of benefits and tax credits. American citizens’ tax dollars would pay for the education of the cartel’s anchor babies.
Americans can also thank Supreme Court Justice William Brennan for writing the majority opinion in the Plyler v. Doe (1982) case letting Mexico send its pregnant cartel beauties across the border. The 5-4 ruling forbids schools from withholding taxpayer funding that would go towards educating illegal alien children — and Brennan tacked on a footnote that declared, “No plausible distinction with respect to Fourteenth Amendment ‘jurisdiction’ can be drawn between resident aliens whose entry into the United States was lawful, and resident aliens whose entry was unlawful,” as bestselling conservative author Ann Coulter pointed out.
The Fourteenth Amendment’s text: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside,” was, of course, meant to give American blacks citizenship after the Civil War. It’s been translated into allowing anyone in the world to con their way into U.S. citizenship with anchor babies and chain migration.
Should El Chapo’s Mexican cartel-connected children commit a crime in the U.S., they would be added to “native” crime statistics, so the Immigration Policy Center’s Dr. Daniel Martinez can lecture us that the native-born are more likely to commit crime than immigrants.
El Chapo is free in Mexico after escaping from a maximum security prison on Sunday and he — or someone in his orbit — is tweeting like a bandit.
“There is no jail for such a big midget!” El Chapo, who reportedly stands 5 feet and 6 inches tall, boasted on Monday, while attacking GOP frontrunner Donald Trump as a “blonde milk-s******.” His wife and children are free to hop back and forth between Mexico and the United States whenever they please while he remains at large.
