I guess with all of the latest negative press and pressure from the Conservatives, Lindsey Graham thinks he’s figured out a nice bone to throw for appeasement. Now, all of a sudden, he’s very irritated by all of these anchor babies born here in America and he says:
“I may introduce a constitutional amendment that changes the rules if you have a child here,” Graham said during an interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. “Birthright citizenship I think is a mistake, that we should change our Constitution and say if you come here illegally and you have a child, that child’s automatically not a citizen.”
Asked how intent Graham is on introducing the amendment, the South Carolina Republican responded: “I got to.”
“People come here to have babies,” he said. “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.”
I guess it’s a safe bone to throw because it’s doubtful to gain a split section of traction among his peers.
