Are we not a land of immigrants…apparently not in Arizona

2. Sen. Kyl: Repeal 14th Amendment

Should we start punishing kids for their parents’ behavior? Sen. Jon Kyl
(R-AZ) wants to repeal the 14th Amendment, which says that anyone born
here is an American citizen. Kyl wants the U.S.-born kids of illegal
immigrants to be denied citizenship, the senator said on ‘Face the
Nation.’ He supports a proposal from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) – known
on the far right as “Senator Grahamnesty” for his earlier
pro-immigration stance derided as amnesty – to amend the Constitution to
delete this right established in 1868 to prevent Southern states from
denying citizenship to slaves. “The 14th Amendment [has been]
interpreted to provide that if you are born in the United States, you
are a citizen no matter what,” Kyl said. “So the question is, if both
parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal
behavior?”
