Harry Reid Busted: Attacks Sharron Angle Over Her Birthright Stand – Something He Proposed in 1993
It’s been a rough week for poor Harry Reid.
First, his attack on Hispanic Americans backfired on him.
Now, we find out that although he attacked conservative Sharron Angle for her comments on repealing the 14th Amendment, he proposed the same thing a few years back.
From the Harry Reid website:
Reid attacked Sharron Angle saying:
And while excluding Hispanic media, Sharron Angle at that same media availability pledged to her “invited guests” she’d change the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution using the loaded and xenophobic language “anchor babies.”
Unfortunately for Harry, Kerry Pickett at The Washington Times discovered that far left Senator Reid introduced a bill ‘clarifying’ birthright citizenship’ back in 1993.
For all the brouhaha over Republicans wanting to review the interpretation of the 14th Amendment, the citizenship/birthright clause, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, once supported revising the current interpretation of the birthright citizenship clause in 1993.
Mr. Reid introduced a bill to the Senate Judiciary Committee as the Immigration Stabilization Act of 1993. The bill, which died in committee after it was referred to the Subcommittee on Immigration and Refugee Affairs, includes tough immigration provisions that would make many wonder where Mr. Reid truly stands on the immigration and border debate.
Title X of the Reid introduced bill shows the Nevada Democrat took Senator Lindsey Graham’s, South Carolina Republican, idea on the interpretation of the 14th Amendment and documented it into legislation.
Of course, the fact that Harry Reid will say anything to win an election surprises no one.
For the record… Most Americans (58%) still oppose granting U.S. citizenship automatically to children born in America to illegal immigrants.
