Congressman Flake

According to the Washington Times, Rep. Jeff Flake of Arizona feels that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States," is probably a typo.
That pesky little line in the 14th Amendment needs some whitewashing according to some congressional Republicans, and they would like to pretend that certain children born in our country are really citizens of somewhere else.
I am not sure what rights they think citizens of this country still have, but it seems they feel it is still too much for some people, and that raising a few kids in an INS detention cell is just what the Constitution intended.
Of course, joining the other Flake was Tom Tancredo the Rep for CO-6. I guess that after his fine 'nuke mecca' suggestion, he should at least call for the firebombing of Brownsville, Texas.

Of course a possilbility is that the 14th Amendment citizenship stipulation was based on the naive idea that immigration laws would be enforced, and illegal invaders would not be having children within our borders. Rather, we have Congressional ninnies ignoring law violations for fear of offending possilbe supporters. The following dialog is a typical example:
"There are currently 11 million illegal aliens in the US, why aren't immigration laws being enforced?"
"Where'd you get that number from?"
"The 11 million number is from Northeastern University. Six million is a Census Bureau number." - Human Events
"I don't know if that's the case."
"Will you answer the question about deportation?"
"No, I won't." - Rep. David Bonior (D-Michigan)
