Discussion about the 14th Amendment and its granting of citizenship to anyone born in the United States heated up again on Friday, this time focused on an attempt made by Harry Reid more than 15 years ago to end so-called birthright citizenship.
As more than a couple news outlets pointed out on Friday, Mr. Reid did sponsor legislation in 1993 that would have, among other things, increased patrols at the border and rolled back the practice of giving citizenship to babies born in America to illegal immigrants.
The Nevada Democrats office responded on Friday that some of those accounts were not telling the whole story, saying that Mr. Reid had already apologized and expressed regret four years ago for pushing that measure.

Harry the Hypocrite. LOL
He’s a hypocrite, but the whole purpose of these stories is to rehabilitate his image among Nevada voters.
It would be nice to go back in time and see who else agreed with him then.
Scary is that we have GOP who have always been to the LEFT OF HARRY REID on the borders and Illegal Aliens....heck Arizona may be sending back the Harry Reid of the GOP...John Hussein McCain.
Funny that Reid used to be tough on the border....and the GOP has Narco-supporters like Lindsey Graham. Scary
