Last night I heard McCain say we should have hearings on immigration. Someone please tell Hannity and McCain that we have had at least three hearings in very recent years. Overwhelmingly they have showed that birthright citizenship was never intended for illegal aliens in the 14th amendment. Does McCain thnk we are stupid?
On another Fox show with Bill Hemmer, he mis-stated that the 14th amendment included anchor babies.
Either they are not doing their homework, or they are intentionally trying to mislead the uninformed masses.......... again.
It’s laziness. It’s the generally accepted interpretation.
He’s a politician - isn’t he?
Oh, I don’t know if McCain thinks we’re stupid as much as he thinks we have no short-term memory.
Does McCain thnk we are stupid?
Apparently he does. He’s leading in the polls, isn’t he???
So this thread is about something you saw on TV?
Were there commercials for lawyers or community colleges?
Will you post threads about those too?
Who is pablo
One who is wily, a wily fellow.
That’s it McLame...Call for ‘a hearing’
That’s bold action...That’ll do ‘er
Section. 1. 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.
Section. 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.
No constitutional amendment is required. If Graham and his ilk are really serious about fixing the anchor baby problem (1 of every 8 babies born in the USA) they will submit a bill to do so. The bill will define the meaning of that clause "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof"
Let Obama veto it at his peril and then face the voters a year later.
I gathered that much.
