KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knox County residents are asked to support the environment and veterans by taking part in Power It Down Day on August 27.

The idea is to save money by turning off your computer, monitor, printer, etc. when you leave work that Friday. In turn, the project organizers will make a donation to the Wounded Warriors Project.

Study: 8 Percent of U.S. Births to Illegal Immigrants

Pew Hispanic Center Report Sheds Light on Americans at Center of Birthright Citizenship Debate By DEVIN DWYER WASHINGTON, August 11, 2010— Eight percent of all babies born in the U.S. in 2008 belonged to illegal immigrant parents, according to a groundbreaking analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data by the Pew Hispanic Center. Under the 14th amendment to the Constitution, each child obtained U.S. citizenship at birth while one or both of the parents remained undocumented.

14th Amendment: Is birthright citizenship really in the Constitution?

By Peter Grier Wed Aug 11, 5:14 pm ET Washington – Is "birthright citizenship" – the policy of granting US citizenship to every child born on national soil – really enshrined in the US Constitution?

I'm 63. Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I've worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven't called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there's no retirement in sight, and I'm tired. Very tired.
