Immigration bill challenges
citizenship laws for children

Arizona rep. says
citizenship law
increases costs
PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona
lawmakers are again diving into
the national debate over illegal
immigration by proposing a bill
that challenges automatic U.S.
citizenship for children of illegal
The proposalyesterdaycomes
after Arizona last year enacted
one of the nation's toughest local
laws targeting illegal immigra-
Republican Rep. John Kava-
nagh, who filed the latest pro-
posal, said the goal isn't to get
every state in the union to enact
such a law, but rather to bring
the dispute to the courts in
hopes of reducing the costs asso-
ciated with granting automatic

The lighting doesn't cost the
University any money since the
expense of Big House lights is
covered by a separate athletic

to full benefits, everything
from welfare to cheese, which
increases the costs to the states,"
Kavanagh said. "And beyond
that, it's irresponsible and fool-
ish to, bestow citizenship based
upon one's GPS location at birth."
This is the second time this
year that lawmakers in a state
have targeted the U.S. Constitu-
tion's 14th Amendment, which
guarantees citizenship to any-
one born in the U.S.
A similar proposal was filed
last week in the Indiana Gen-
eral Assembly by Republican
Rep. Eric Koch. Pennsylvania
state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, who
is leading the effort to get the
measure considered across the
country, said he hopes that law-
makers in 10 to 15 states will file
similar proposals this year.
Supporters of the proposal
argue that the wording of the
14th Amendment, which guar-
antees citizenship to people
born in the U.S. who are "subject
to the jurisdiction" of this coun-

which was held on Dec.11.
The University's Board of
Regents unanimously approved
the $1.8 million installation at
its meeting in September.
"The addition of permanent
lights will improve the qual-
ity of viewing experience for
our fans," Athletic Director
David Brandon wrote in a press
release at the time.
The first night game will take
place on Sept. 10, 2011 against
Notre Dame.

try, doesn't apply to the children
of illegal immigrants because
such families don'towe sole alle-
giance to the U.S.
Opponents say the proposal
is mean-spirited toward immi-
grants, won't make a dent in the
state's immigration woes, and
will be declared unconstitution-
al by the courts.
Democratic Rep. Daniel Pat-
terson of Tucson, an opponent
of the bill, said the measure
will result in lawsuits and dis-
tract the state from focusing on
improvements to its hard-hit
economy. And, Patterson said, it
won't do anything to repair Ari-
zona's image.
"Bills like this that really
aren't going to go anywhere,"
Patterson said, "they are really
only goingto end up in court and
drive up litigation costs and give
us more of a bad reputation as
kind of a crazy state that I don't
think that most of the people in
this state agree with. It's just a
waste of time."

the nighttime lighting has a

University addresses the issue
from an environmental stand-

attention, this is a nice sort of
mini-test of how serious they

De Young said.

-- S
Egyptian activists protested for the third day ina row in response to social networking sites that called for a mass rally in Cairo
after Friday prayers. This was the country's largest anti-government protest inyears.
Hundreds activists
protest outsi'de Cairo

Rioters seek to oust
Egyptian president,
firebomb fire station
CAIRO (AP) - Violence esca-
lated in two cites outside the
capital Cairo yesterday where
anti-government protesters
torched a fire station and looted
weapons that they then turned
on police. Egypt's top democracy
advocate returned to the country
and declared he was ready to lead
the campaign to oust longtime
President Hosni Mubarak.
In the flashpoint city of Suez,
east of Cairo, witnesses said riot-
ers - some wearingsurgical masks
to ward off tear gas - firebombed
the main fire station and firefight-
ers jumped out windows to escape
the flames, as heavy black smoke
billowed from the building. In
the northern Sinai area of Sheik
Zuweid, several hundred Bed-
ouins and police exchanged live
gunfire, killing a 17-year-old man.
About 300 protesters surrounded
a police station from rooftops of
nearby buildings and fired two

RPGs at it, damaging the walls.
Social networking sites were
abuzz with talk that today's rallies
could be some of the biggest so far
calling for the ouster of Mubarak
after 30 years in power. Millions
gather at mosques across the city
for Friday prayers, providing orga-
nizers with a huge number of peo-
ple already out on the streets to tap
Byyesterday evening, Facebook,
Twitter, cell phone text messages
as well as Blackberry Messenger
services were interrupted, possi-
bly a move by authorities to ham-
per protesters from organizing.
Egypt's ruling party said it was
ready for a dialogue with the pub-
lic but offered no concessions to
address demands for a solution
to rampant poverty and politi-
cal change heard in the country's
largest anti-government protests
in years. Safwat EI-Sherif, the
secretary general of the National
Democratic Party and a longtime
confidant of Mubarak, was dismis-
sive of the protesters at the first
news conference by a senior rul-
ing party figure since the protests

"We are confident of our abil-
ity to listen. The NDP is ready for
a dialogue with the public; youth
and legal parties," he said. "But
democracy has its rules and pro-
cess. The minority does not force
its will on the majority."
The 82-year-old Mubarak has
not been seen in public or heard
from since the protests began
Tuesday with tens of thousands
marching in Cairo and a string of
other cities.
Mubarak has not said yet
whether he will stand for anoth-
er six-year term as president in
elections this year. He has never
appointed a deputy and is thought
to be grooming his son Gamal
to succeed him despite popular
opposition. According to leaked
U.S. memos, hereditary succes-
sion also does not meet with the
approval of the powerful military.
Mubarak has seen to it that no
viable alternative to him has been
allowed to emerge. Constitutional
amendments adopted in 2005 by
the NDP-dominated parliament
has made it virtually impossible
for independents like ElBaradei to
run for president.
