Graham Eyes “Birthright Citizenship”


Lindsey’s back with another peculiar idea.

Lindsey Graham recently mentioned that he might be  introducing a constitutional amendment restricting (or banning) citizenship to babies of illegal aliens.  “I may introduce a constitutional amendment that changes the rules if you have a child here,” Graham said to Greta Van Susteren of Fox News.  “Birthright citizenship I think is a mistake …  We should change our Constitution and say if you come here illegally and you have a child, that child’s automatically not a citizen.”

So, I am curious how he and the others who are interested in collaborating with him will contruct this bill and make the process efficient [if that’s what you call it]? What’s ironic is that this is coming from the same guy that supports amnesty for illegals. He goes on to say,

People come here to have babies. They come here to drop a child. It’s called “drop and leave.” To have a child in America, they cross the border, they go to the emergency room, have a child, and that child’s automatically an American citizen. That shouldn’t be the case. That attracts people here for all the wrong reasons.

Graham goes further and says that he is a “fair” guy.  Why don’t we just end the Welfare State, Lindsay? Wouldn’t that inevitably end illegal immigration and decrease “anchor babies”?  And where the hell does his support for a national ID card fall on all this? Any thoughts? I know this is getting a mixed reaction.
