Lindsey Graham: Illegals Come Here to ‘Drop a Child’

If you thought the recent right wing push to repeal part of the US Constitution’s 14th amendment and take away automatic birthright citizenship was just a wacky idea from the Rand Paul fringe, think again. Lindsey Graham eyes ‘birthright citizenship’.

And in his statement on Fox News (where else?), Graham resorted to some of the crudest dehumanizing language I’ve seen from any politician.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced Wednesday night that he is considering introducing a constitutional amendment that would change existing law to no longer grant citizenship to the children of immigrants born in the United States. …

“People come here to have babies,” he said. “They come here to drop a child. It’s called “drop and leave.” To have a child in America, they cross the border, they go to the emergency room, have a child, and that child’s automatically an American citizen. That shouldn’t be the case. That attracts people here for all the wrong reasons.”
