congressional nominee Raul Labrador (pictured) is "not taking a position" on
whether the U.S. Constitution should no longer grant native-born
children of illegal immigrants citizenship, his campaign said Thursday
morning. Wednesday's blog said Labrador's position was "unknown." "Raul is not in favor of repealing the 14th amendment but feels there
are other options to look at within it for refinement," said campaign
spokesman Phil Hardy in an e-mail this morning. "Therefore the not
taking a position." Democratic Rep. Walt Minnick said he opposed ending citizenship
rights for the native born, which are guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.
It was the only question on the 12-item survey on which the two
candidates disagreed. Both were rated by the group as "true reformers"/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman. More here.
Question: Do you support the 14th amendment, which gives citizenship rights to native born people?
