    PHOENIX (AP) -- The state senator in Arizona who wrote the nation's toughest law against illegal immigrants said Tuesday he's collecting support across the country from legislators to challenge automatic U.S. citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants.

    Arizona state Sen. Russell Pearce's target is the 14th Amendment, but it is unclear how the state lawmaker can or will influence a federal statue.
    "This is a battle of epic proportions," Pearce said Tuesday during a news conference at the Arizona Capitol. "We've allowed the hijacking of the 14th Amendment."

    Pearce declined to say how the legislation will differ from similar measures that have been introduced in each two-year congressional session since 2005. None of them made it out of committee.

    He and another Arizona lawmaker did argue that wording in the amendment that guarantees citizenship to people born in the U.S. who are "subject to the jurisdiction" of this country does not apply to the children of illegal immigrants because such families don't owe sole allegiance to the U.S.

    The efforts by Pearce and the other lawmakers come amid calls to change the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment. Supporters cite costs to taxpayers for services provided to illegal immigrants and their children.

    Good for AZ. The sooner we stop the illegal anchor dropping making anchor babies the sooner we get wages up and unemployment down.

    Ah, these Conservatives, they so love the Constitution of the United States of America, provided that they can change it on a moments notice.

    The process is there for amending the Constitution. If you can convince enough people, it can be amended, as the existing number of amendments demonstrate. If you cannot convince enough people to do it legally, don't start that damned nonsense of doing it illegally.

    Amen Brother.

    Seems to me that Harry Reid tried to do this once??

    Good idea. No anchor baby, no US citizenship, no social services. Mayby they will stay home.

    I'm going to guess you assclowns are getting zero progress on this, along with reversing abortion and the first amendment. But please keep beating your head on the brick wall, it's hillarious.

    Excellent idea, altering the 14th amendment. Now...all you need is 2/3rds of both houses to pass such an alteration as another amendment and get 75% of the states (38) to sign off on it as a vote. Get Crackin'.

    I agree it would require amending the amendment, which would require a new amendment. I'm wondering how much support it would get if attempted.
