We should totally screw with the 14th amendment...

....said Sen. Harry Reid.

For all the brouhaha over Republicans wanting to review the interpretation of the 14th Amendment, the citizenship/birthright clause, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, once supported revising the current interpretation of the birthright citizenship clause in 1993.

Mr. Reid introduced a bill to the Senate Judiciary Committee as the Immigration Stabilization Act of 1993. The bill, which died in committee after it was referred to the Subcommittee on Immigration and Refugee Affairs, includes tough immigration provisions that would make many wonder where Mr. Reid truly stands on the immigration and border debate.

The Center for Immigration Studies said of the bill in 1993:

Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) has introduced a comprehensive immigration reform bill (S. 1351) that includes a provision that would limit citizenship to those whose mothers are United States citizens or legal permanent residents. However, Senator Reid's proposal is to amend only the Immigration and Nationality Act, not the Constitution.


Makes you think the Senator may regret these words he uttered not long ago:

    He's complete disowned himself from his prior support of this nonsense.

    Way to take it entirely out of context.

  3. Maybe the only good idea Harry Reid has ever had.


No profanity, keep it clean.
