Mitch McConnell: let’s have hearing on 14th Amendment and ‘Birthright Citizenship’

It’s Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell leading the way on this BS. That alone requires examination for a host of reasons…

So instead of coming up with reality-based solutions regarding immigration reform, let’s have hearings on all sorts of things to stir up the Base. Should we take a look at the 2nd Amendment since “modern times” surely requires a different, discriminating eye than when “bear arms” meant a musket, not a stash of AK-47s?

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) officially supports a review of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which grants children of undocumented immigrants status as U.S. citizens, his office confirmed to the Huffington Post on Monday.

…In offering his support, McConnell becomes the highest-ranking Republican figure to call for examining the reach of the 14th amendment. On Sunday, his chief deputy, Sen. John Kyl (R-Ariz.) told CBS’ Face the Nation that he too would back hearings into revising citizenship laws. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) — a one-time proponent of comprehensive immigration reform — has explicitly called for the 14th Amendment’s repeal.
