[quote:Anonymous Coward 1018917:MV8xMTQ3NTg0XzE4NDU2OTY4XzNDOTAwMUYx] We shall see, eh? Graham isn't one of the "good guys." He helped get us into Iraq, and we can see how well THAT has gone for us. He's willing to go after Iran, which means more stresses on our troops. Graham has problems with the right of habeas corpus, and would deny it to those deemed "enemy combatants." That might seem all fluffy and good until Joe Schmoe protests a war, is arrested, and deemed an "enemy combatant." My point is that Graham is not one of the 'good guys.' It's an election year, and he's hoping to gain some points. I'd be more impressed if the man hadn't announced that he was 'considering' introducing a constitutional amendment but went ahead and did the deed right out of the gate. [/quote]
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced Wednesday night that he is considering introducing a constitutional amendment that would change existing law to no longer grant citizenship to the children of immigrants born in the United States.
Currently, the 14th Amendment grants citizenship to any child born in the United States.
But with 12 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S., Graham said it may be time to restrict the ability of immigrants to have children who become citizens just because they are born in the country.

14th Amendment, which states that, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” The amendment was ratified in 1868 as one of several reforms aimed at giving Constitutional rights to former slaves.
