Governor of Minnesota Backs Changing the 14th Amendment
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty appeared on Bloomberg Television this past weekend and joined in on the call to amend the 14th Amendment. Lawmakers across the nation are pushing to revoke the current birthright citizenship that children of undocumented mothers currently receive. “We’re the only, or one of the few, developed nations in the world that allows somebody to come here illegally, give birth to a child, and then have the child be a legal citizen of our country,” Pawlenty said. This legislative push however, will be a difficult one to implement because it means the Constitution will be amended.
