IRONY! – Harry Reid in 1993 introduced bill ‘clarifying’ birthright citizenship aka ending birthright citizenship for kids of illegals

Wish I had a CSPAN video of this. But i do find this highly ironic AND hypocritical that in 1993, Harry filed a bill that would have done exactly what some Republicans are now discussing. Ending birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants! The bill entitled the “Immigration Stabilization Act of 1993″ died in Senate Judiciary Committee and never saw the light of day. According to the Washington Times, in Title X of the bill Harry Reid introduced, it shows Reid sounded a lot like Lindsey Graham does today. At least it sounds like Graham’s recent interpretation of the 14th Amendment. This is what’s documented it Reid’s 1993 legislation:

“TITLE X—CITIZENSHIP 4 SEC. 1001. BASIS OF CITIZENSHIP CLARIFIED.  In the exercise of its powers under section of the Fourteenth Article of Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, the Congress has determined and hereby declares that any person born after the date of enactment of this title to a mother who is neither a citizen of the United States nor admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident, and which person is a national or citizen of another country of which either of his or her natural parents is a national or citizen, or is entitled uponapplication to become a national or citizen of such country, shall be considered as born subject to the jurisdiction of that foreign country and not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States within the meaning of section 1 of such Article and shall therefore not be a citizen of the United States or of any State solely by reason of physical presence within the United States at the moment of birth.”
