It's said that 40% of illegal immigration comes from Nationals that overstay their visas

What of them?

How many of these guys became illegal aliens?

Big new tourist industry in Russia is to fly pregnant to the US, but then, it ain't like a bunch of dual-citizenship Russians could ever cause a problem.

The way to deal with the icky-poo dems is to not re-elect them when their term is up.

I know that there has been talk of dropping the "if born in U.S. of foreign parents, then you are a citizen of the U.S.".  I have mixed thoughts on that.   If someone ever writes a law to change it, then I'll give it some thought.

Not to oppose you since we probably think more alike than differ....but how did that work out in November?

- have a recall election?



Well, let's look to the Constitution, shall we?

Quote:
Article I, sec. 1:

"The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States..."

sec. 4, cl. 1:

"The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations, except as to the Places of chusing Senators."

sec. 5, cl. 2:

"Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the Concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member."

sec 3, cl. 2:

"...and if Vacancies happen by Resignation, or otherwise, during the Recess of the Legislature of any State, the Executive thereof may make temporary Appointments until the next Meeting of the Legislature, which shall then fill such Vacancies."

Amendment 17, sec 2:

"When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies:  Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct."



Ok, so the short answer is no, not really. Not in the way you mean, anyway.

First, House Democrats can be expelled, but it takes a 2/3 vote of the House to expel each member. So, expelling all of the House Democrats at once is impossible as long as there are at least 146 Democrats (1/3 of 435 is 145), unless one or more of them want to expel themselves. In theory, after you expel each one, the threshold gets slightly lower, but I think we can all agree that suggesting we remove all of the Democrats this way is currently an absurdity.

The Constitution says the House members are chosen every second year. The only provision it gives for doing so more often is if there is a vacancy "by Resignation or otherwise."

The Constitution also says that the legislature in each State gets to decide how elections take place and that Congress may alter such regulations.

But, the text of that section clearly refers to the elections that happen "every second year." There is no authority given the States to recall House members.

So, the answer to your question is that while it is technically possible for 2/3 of the House to expel the other 1/3, that is not going to happen and even if it were going to happen, Democrats currently make up more than 1/2 of the House, let alone 1/3.

So no, they can't be recalled.
