It is one thing when immigrants who have been here for years, contributing to the U.S., become citizens through the legal process. It is another when an immigrant crosses the border into this country with her unborn baby with the express purpose to birth it here for citizenship. But the 14th Amendment clearly states, ” All persons born or naturalized in the United States…” It makes no distinction to who they are or how they got here, it’s an open invitation that GOP members of Congress are now questioning. As is the rage over the 2nd Amendment, we haven’t yet heard the shouts about what the “Founding Fathers” meant. Just what Republicans want to do to put another barrier up against the Hispanic movement. And this whole issue would not be flaring up again in a completely new venue if the GOP would help pass immigration reform.
Incidentally, if you’re in the changing mood, you should focus on the 2nd Amendment and either revise it drastically or get rid of it altogether.
