Senator Graham Steps Out of the Closet on Birthright Citizenship

You can be a "champion" for immigration reform and still loathe "anchor babies."
Once the Senate Republican champion for a "comprehensive immigration reform" bill, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has come out in support of overturning the 14th amendment provisions that provide birthright citizenship for children born in the United States.
"I may introduce a constitutional amendment that changes the rules if you have a child here," Graham said during an interview with Fox News, which probably sent Fox News viewers into a wild frenzy.
The statement to Fox News came as a response to a federal judge prohibiting key components of Arizona's anti-immigrant law. As a result of the ruling, right-wingers are coming out of the closet with threats of violence and more novel (read: stupid) ideas on how to limit immigration from those "illegal Mexicans."
