Huckabee: Don't Amend the 14th Amendment

Friday, 13 Aug 2010 07:48 AM


Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says he is against changing the 14th Amendment to defeat birthright citizenship, according to a report by Politico.com.

“The Supreme Court has decided that, I think, in three different centuries,” Huckabee said to NPR. “In every single instance, they have affirmed that if you are born in this country, you are considered to be a citizen. The only option there is to change the Constitution.”

Is the former Arkansas governor for such a change? "No," he says directly.

Meanwhile, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., House Minority Leader John Boehner of Ohio and other GOP leaders have said they support holding hearings on birthright citizenship.
