Lindsey Graham: Birthright Citizenship Is A Mistake (VIDEO)


Birthright citizenship is a legal principle based in the 14th Amendment: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside." In the absence of birthright citizenship, it is possible for someone to be born without having citizenship in any country at all, due to failure to meet some extra requirement that could be imposed, such as ancestry or other circumstances.
