Some GOP Sanity on Immigration

Glad to see that some former Bush Administration officials, as well as Michael Gerson, are pushing back against the Nativists in their party who have suggested re-writing the Fourteenth Amendment to deny citizenship to children born of undocumented parents.

“The 14th Amendment is a great legacy of the Republican party,” Mark McKinnon told Politico. “It is a shame and an embarrassment that the GOP now wants to amend it for starkly political reasons.” Let’s hope some elected officials – and perhaps former President Bush himself – jump up and second McKinnon’s sentiments.

Support independent reporting on important issues.
