Harry Reid, who recently told a Hispanic group that he doesn’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could vote Republican must have memory problems. Then again, he’s been in DC for so long that anyone could have trouble remembering legislation they sponsored nearly twenty years ago.
Thank goodness Kerry Picket is here to refresh his memory.
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….:
Read the whole thing, which includes the text of the language as well as an interpretation of Reid’s bill by an immigration group.
