Bill Proposes To Eliminate Birthright Law

Bill Proposes To Eliminate Birthright Law


Arizona May 22 - The author of Arizona's Immigration Law, Senator Russell Pearce, says he wants to pass another law, this one effecting children of illegal immigrants.

In an e-mail obtained by our sister station in Phoenix, Pearce writes he plans to "push for an Arizona bill that would refuse to accept or issue a birth certificate that recognizes citizenship to those born to illegal aliens, unless one parent is a citizen."

Last year, 92 congressmen sponsored a bill changing the 14th Amendment so children of illegal immigrants born in the U.S. would not be granted citizenship.  The bill is still in committee.

Last month, Representative Duncan Hunter of California told a Tea Party rally he would support deporting children of illegal immigrants, even if they are citizens.

His spokesman later tried to clarify Hunter's remarks.
