Bill Richardson, Invader Baby

The December 2007 issue of Playboy includes an interview with Bill "call me Lopez" Richardson. In part the introduction says (sorry no link):
Richardson's run for president began 60 years ago--on the day he was born. His parents lived in Mexico City, where his father was a branch manager for National City Bank of New York. But he sent his Mexican wife to Pasadena, California for the birth of their child. This gave Richardson U.S. citizenship and also ensured that he met the constitutional requirements for the presidency.
Clearly Playboy could have summed it up, and in language more in tune with the zeitgeist, by simply saying Bill Richardson is an anchor baby. Since his parents weren't poor and didn't use him as an anchor it would have been even more accurate to describe him as an invader baby.

The interviewer does not question Lopez on either his name or his citizenship, and asks him only one immigration-related question:
PLAYBOY: As governor of New Mexico, you have a close-up look at our border with Mexico. How would you control the borders? You have said you don't want a fence. What would you do to stop the flow across the border?

RICHARDSON: I'll first tell you what I did as governor. I proposed doubling the number of border-patrol agents, which is consistent with a 9/11 Commission recommendation. I can easily see 15,000 at the border. Right now it isn't adequately protected. I would extend the tour of the National Guard. Many of us had reservations about using the Guard for this, but it seems to be working; they're deterring the flow. I would also increase the detection equipment at the border. My worst nightmare is nuclear material--uranium, plutonium--being transported by a terrorist across the border. And two years ago I angered a lot of Hispanic and immigrant groups by being the first governor to declare a border emergency. At the time, the border patrol was almost non-existent in my quarter. There were drugs coming in, violence--the flow was huge. I declared a border emergency, which enabled me as governor to hire local law enforcement. I took state appropriations to pay for law enforcement at the border, which is essentially a federal function. Also, I vetoed legislation that said local law enforcement couldn't cooperate with federal law enforcement agencies.
So. Nothing about what to do with the millions already here. Nothing about his proposed policies or where they might lead in the future.

Let's review then the thin gruel we do get, shall we?

Richardson, to his credit, at least accepts the reality that the flow across our border is huge. Or at least it was huge until, against his wishes, a small and unarmed contingent of Guard was put in place. So he's seen the light now, and he's willing to build a wall. Unfortunately, he favors building it out of people. This I think betrays a disingenuous but typically liberal intent. You see I give him credit for being smart enough to realize that people, unlike concrete and steel, can be bribed. We hear all the time how an X foot wall can be defeated by an X+1 foot ladder. We almost never hear how all that "flow" across the border is lubricated by money. Money that can much more easily make a government official look the other way than it can make steel and concrete obstacles disappear and then reappear.

We're also constantly told by invasion-supporting wall-opposers that any wall whatsoever would be too expensive, which they can only say of course because they always neglect to factor in how much it would save. As anybody who works for a living realizes, a wall made out of people would only be more expensive. And as anybody who understands politics realizes, when politicians create jobs the last thing on their mind is getting work done. If for whatever reason we couldn't build a chainlink and concrete wall then I would favor a human wall, in spite of the extra expense, because of my confidence in the aforementioned net savings. But this is all moot, because we can build a real wall, and the politicians will just have to make due with the lesser opportunities for featherbedding, payola, and other forms of corruption.

At the American Chronicle Mark Lowry noted another wrinkle to Richardson's illegitimacy back in May, in an article titled Mexican Citizen May Be America’s Next President
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

“. . .
As Richardson explained in an article in the Washington Post, "My father had a complex about not having been born in the United States." After the death of Richardson's father in 1972, his mother was remarried, to Mexican nutritionist Salvador Zubiran Anchondo in 1986. …Bill Richardson was raised in Mexico City, but his parents sent him to Massachusetts at age 13 to attend a Boston-area preparatory school.”

The constitution doesn’t permit foreign citizens born and raised in a foreign country for their first 13 years of life to become president. How can anyone interpret the constitution in such a manner to permit an anchor baby who was not raised in the United States to become president? It is outrageous to permit the ruse of bringing pregnant women into the country for the expressed purpose of creating dual citizenship for United States benefits. Does it constitute 14 years of residency if they live in a territory of the United States and not the United States?
Hands up, how many people knew Bill Richardson was born to Mexican parents and spent the first 13 years of his life in Mexico?

Thanks watchdog media! At least you've done a bang up job informing everybody Mitt Romney is a Mormon and Tom Tancredo can't possibly get elected.

One last point.

In order to become president Arnold Schwarzenegger, a putative conservative, would need a whole new constitutional amendment. Good luck with that Arnold. Bill Richardson and all the other invader babies, in contrast, needed only a handful of dictators in black robes to wave their magic liberal wands and subvert an existing amendment.

If Arnold wants an easier road to the presidency he should change parties. He'd be more at home on that side anyway.

(Be sure to click the image and read a self-described Latino political whore gloss over Richardson's background.)

You Racist Scum! (Im in a ripe mood)

Richardson's American ancestry pre-dates the revolution. Grandpappy Blaney went to Nicaragua and fathered Papa Blaney (born in a boat). Papa Blaney (citizenship status unknown but educated in the US) IN HIS WISDOM VALUED US CITIZENSHIP and sent his invader fetus(es) over the border.

What do you think ex-pats do when they have pregnant wives outside the country?

If someone crossed the border with their pregnant wife on vacation and she had a premature birth - line up for Z-itizenship for el nino! Nope, I think the baby was born at home according to the application to social security.

"... against his wishes ..." Oh dear, a politician who says one thing and thinks another? What will we do? At least he is doing more than nothing - what's the Terminator(Nazi-spawn-dual-citizen-Im sure they did a thorough background check on him) done for you lately?

Of course Dr. Chertoff's swiss-cheese fence model is the best US-taxpayer money can buy. If they cant have a continuous fence (due to private ownership and eminent domain on ranch land - Texas? No! Lower Middle Class in Connecticut? Yes!) - than doesnt a human fence make sense? Of course this is America - we cant have BOTH!

Land-mine the whole border... Put up signs in English Only - Learn the language and you wont get blown up.

Tanstaafl, interesting info about Richardson's (or Lopez's) early life. I didn't know that he had spent his first fourteen years in Mexico.
I researched his ancestry a while back and was surprised to learn that he is actually 3/4 Mexican as his father was half-Mexican also. So he has only one-fourth American (Anglo) ancestry.
I wondered if Arnold Schwarzenegger was being groomed to break the barrier for foreign-born people to be President, but I think Richardson (although American-born) could one day end up in the WH as our first Mexican president.
Since he is partly descended from early Massachusetts colonists I was interested to know if his family tree intersected with my New England line. It appears not.

ff, the govt isn't shy about using eminent domain throughout Texas to build their NAFTA megahighway. Certainly they have more legitimate reasons to use it along the border.

I like your landmine idea. I suggest we back it up with tank traps, pillboxes, and lots and lots of barbed wire. And a UAV or two to make Chertoff happy.

VA, I don't fear Richardson ever making it to president. He's a lightweight (uhh figuratively speaking). VP on Hillary's ticket maybe. But I don't think she's unwise enough to do that. I hope she does though because it will only expose the Omnipotent Latino Voter as a myth, and reveal instead just how much the real voters oppose the invasion.

Just a melange to feast on ...

Chertoff also said he "can't rule out" that the government could use eminent domain to seize private property if it's necessary to build the fence.


"Because of a software problem, the first high-technology "virtual fence" on the United States' borders remained inoperable this week, three months after its scheduled debut."

"The integration of all the systems into a common operating picture continues to be the challenge," said Homeland Security spokesperson Russ Knocke. Boeing has put new people on the project who are working to resolve the problems, he said."


Pressed about claims by Duncan Hunter that the administration has built only 13 miles of the border fence approved by Congress last year, Chertoff responded that you don't build a fence a mile at a time, and promised that by September 140 to 150 miles of fencing will be built. Chertoff also noted that the fence is not a "cure-all," inasmuch as a tunnel was recently discovered. During the immigration debate, Chertoff made it pretty clear that he considers it a waste of resources for the Homeland Security Department to chase "our cooks and gardeners."


"Department of Homeland Security has purchased steel from China to build the border fence."


The first nine presidents were not "born" in the US - they were citizens of the US at the signing of the constitution. As entertaining as this has been - what makes Richardson less presidential than say ...
George W. Bush?

If not the letter of the Constitution then certainly it's spirit. It is only by misinterpretation of the 14th amendment that Richardson is even considered a US citizen. Bush is clearly a citizen.

But I suspect that's not what you mean.

Bush may be the worst president ever, and you may disagree with his principles, but he states them pretty clearly, more clearly than Richardson or any Democrat ever does, and he actually pursues what he says he will. Richardson, like so many ethnic politicians, has not been held back by his ethnicity, he's been boosted by it. In his case, boosted beyond his ability.

Tanstaafl, great post. Amazing that no one has bothered to bring up this aspect of Richardson's history. I guess his rivals think they would be called bigots just for taking note of it.

I've missed your comments lately. I hope I didn't make you feel unwelcome just because I criticized your anti-Semitic views. You are always full of good ideas, and it's not like I thought you lost your sanity or anything. You're a great mind that we need in the traditionalist blogosphere, and I always enjoy reading your posts from the front lines.

No offense taken John. I realize my views disturb others. That isn't enough of a reason for me not to pursue the truth, and frankly I'm disturbed about the views of those others who are so disturbed by me.

My country is turning into a balkanized banana republic. It's not happening by accident. The health and safety of my family and my extended family (ie. my race) is tangibly threatened. Getting called names is not going to put me off talking about those threats.

GWB "states them pretty clearly" -


Healthy forests, clear skies, advanced energy, strengthen medicare, mine safety, import safety, Iraq, foreign policy, homeland security (ie, border policy) ....

Im sorry, maybe I misunderstood you. GWB either mistates or provides vague ideas and when his plans go awry reintroduces policy in opposition to his supposed ideaology. A republican expanding government, increasing spending, increasing debt, supporting corporatist-quasi-libertarian ideas and then backpedalling only after people die, get sick, lose $$$.

You want to say democrats dont have an answer. Fine. But Bush's answers were dead wrong and he's been backpedalling ever since he took office.

14th Amendment & Richardson. Did Richardson's parents enter the country illegally to birth him? What makes him less deserving of the title "US citizen" than any one of us? He spent the last 25 plus years in public service and the best you can do is "anchor (invader) baby"?

"Bill Richardson and all the other invader babies, in contrast, needed only a handful of dictators in black robes to wave their magic liberal wands and subvert an existing amendment." Damn those 19th Century liberals (all 6 of them)!

Provides a pretty good overview of the law. Here's the rub: Born in the USA = citizenship? Parent Citizens = citizenship? Birthplace AND/OR Parentage = citizenship?

Pick your poison - somebody is gonna get screwed.

Here is what one of the alleypack morons said,
"Because if he's an anchor baby, then he shouldn't have been able to vote EVER in the past, since I've just learned here that it is NOT constitutional that anchor babies are Americans."

He said he learned this from your article.


These guys need to go back to school. All they can do is blindly follow and fax in form letters to Congress per their leaders.

As Yakov Smirnoff would say, "What a Country!"

This blog is considerably racist. According to your logic, Mitt Romney could be considered a Mexican citizen as well. The Mexican Constitution states that those who have a Mexican born parent (mother or father) is a Mexican Citizen as well. In this case, Mitt Romney is a Mexican citizen since his father was born in Mexico. Maybe you need to explain why you didn't mention this in your blog. He is legally a dual citizen of Mexico and the United States.

I had no idea Romney's father was born in Mexico. Thanks for pointing it out.

Here's a fairly detailed account:

Gaskell Romney, Mitt Romney's grandfather, was not a polygamist. He married Anna Amelia Pratt, the daughter of polygamists and the granddaughter of Parley Pratt, the apostle with 12 wives. Their marriage took place Feb. 20, 1895, in Dublan, Mexico.

Gaskell Romney had moved to Mexico with his parents in 1884 amid the proliferation of U.S. laws prohibiting "unlawful cohabitation." Anna Pratt was born in Utah, but had emigrated to Mexico and lived in one of nine Mormon colonies established over the border.

Gaskell Romney and Anna Pratt had seven children, including George Wilcken Romney, the former Michigan governor. He lived with his parents in Mexico until 1912, when the family returned to the United States.

George Romney married Lenore LaFount, who does not appear to have polygamy in her family tree. The couple, now deceased, had four children, including Mitt Romney.

You can take your racist slur and shove it. You perform the same mental gymnastics required to grant US citizenship to anchor babies. To you the geographic location where people are born is more important than who they are born to and where their loyalties lie. I don't have that problem. I don't like Mitt Romney because he's a globalist who favors immigration. I don't like Bill Richardson because he's a latino who favors immigration. I don't like immigration because it has ruined my country. Understand?
