Well, despite boycotts and bad press, Arizona is at it again and, the state is not alone. Next week, Arizona lawmakers will introduce legislation to repeal the part of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution that provides birthright citizenship.
The 14th Amendment basically says that if you're born on U.S. soil, no matter how you got there, you are an American citizen. The amendment was originally passed to grant citizenship to freed slaves.
Proponents of tougher immigration enforcement say that the original intent of the amendment is being abused when the children of those who illegally enter the country are "rewarded with citizenship just for being born here."
Lawmakers in 14 states plan to introduce similar legislation.
