After Donald Trump expressed support for an end to birthright citizenship, fellow Republican presidential candidate Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal quickly followed suit.

Republican presidential candidates have begun to address the issue after Trump proposed changing the way the U.S. grants citizenship as part of his official immigration policy platform. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) also said last week that birthright citizenship should be “re-examined.”
