Here in Tennessee, last year a US Representative advocated denying citizenship to children born in the United States of illegal immigrant parents in violation of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution.
Well, folks, this year he aint alone. Several US Senators have jumped on the blame illegal immigrants for every thing wrong train. These politicians want to repeal or rewrite the 14th Amendment to deny children born in the US whose parents are illegal immigrants. Changing a nation’s constitution on a whim is what authoritarian nations do.
Open up the US Constitution to change it, and every group with a cause will want to get in on the process. Can you hear the antiabortion calling for an amendment to outlaw abortion. The antigay folks aint for behind with their amendment to define marriage as between one man and one woman. The environmentalist will also jump on the constitution train, as will birthers who will insist on an amendment forcing presidential candidates to submit their birth certificates for public scrutiny. And lets not forget those will want to outlaw the Islamic religion. And those who want it in the constitution that the United States is a Christian nation.
No, man, I say dont mess with the US Constitution.
