#Analysis: Ending #BirthrightCitizenship for the children of illegal immigrants and birth tourists has long been the crown jewel of pro-sovereignty immigration reformers. It's about interpreting the #14Amendment of the #Constitution correctly. Thread.
First, to quote the great Ann Coulter, it's laughable to think that any Founder, Framer or Amender of the Constitution intended for American citizenship to be the prize in a game of Red Rover with the Border Patrol. We're a nation of laws, after all.
Second, #14Amendment was one of three emancipation-related amendments to the #Constitution, designed to grant citizenship to former slaves and their children. The congressional record shows nobody believed 600,000 Americans died to give Congress the chance to open the borders.
