    Ariz. lawmaker takes aim at automatic citizenship - U.S. news- msnbc.com

    Does anyone NOT agree with Pearce? Even if this goes against the wording of the 14th Amendment, can't we change said amendment?

    I agree with him and think the 14th amendment should be repealed, but I don't see that happening since the politicians are afraid to alienate the Hispanic population.

    And who and when would citizenship be granted to? Who determines who does and/or does not get citizenship.

    Nice way to set a permenent under class.

    I agree that the 14th is long overdue for some updating, but not outright repeal.

    I'm curious, have politicians in the state of Arizona made any sort of effort to secure their part of the border? If the federal government is doing a piss-poor job, they can at least do something about their own.

    I was watching Greta last night and she had a dude from the Az. He's someone who's pushing this.

    According to him, the 14th A was put in so that the children of Negro's would be recognized as citizens of the US. He want to bring this forth and have the SC take a look at the 14th, study the history on it, and see if it should indeed apply to children of illegals. He doesn' t think so. Wish I could remember his name.

    I also agree with him. I don't think the 14th Ammendment was ever meant to include the children of illegal aliens in this country.

    It should be reviewed and an ammendment to the ammendment needs to be put in if the SC decides the children of illegals should be citizens.

    No other country accepts this except for Canada and one other. If your in their country and you give birth. Well your kid isn't automatically a citizen of that country.


    Hope it does go to the SC so we can see what their honors have to say about it.

    The 14th is due for revisiting, but this law won't do it. It won't last 5 minutes in front of a judge as there is absolutely no way to read the 14th, and this, and reconcile it.

    Waste of time and taxpayer money.

    So, when exactly was the 14th. Amendement cancelled and who did it.

    The law is Un-Constitutional.
