"If we are going to have an effect on the anchor baby racket, we need to target the mother. Call it sexist, but that's the way nature made it. Men don't drop anchor babies, illegal alien mothers do."
That statement was written by someone in favor of denying U.S. citizenship to babies born here with immigrant mothers. Arizona State Sen. Russell Pearce, driving force behind the "Papers, please" immigration law, forwarded it as part of an e-mail chain on his future plans obtained by the local CBS affiliate in Arizona.
Asked about the statement, Pearce told the station: "It's somebody's opinion…What they're trying to say is it's wrong. And I agree with them. It's wrong."
