Return Address Required

Republicans love to talk about how much they love the Constitution and how the men that wrote it were inspired by God. As for those nasty ammendmnets (other than the 2nd one, something to do with guns) sometimes not so much. This is what Rep. Duncan Hunter (R Ca) said over the weekend:

"Would you support deportation of natural-born American citizens that are the children of illegal aliens," Hunter was asked. "I would have to, yes," Hunter said. "... We simply cannot afford what we're doing right now," he said. "... It takes more than just walking across the border to become an American citizen. It's what's in our souls. ..."

That kind of goes against the 14th Ammendment:

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. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
