Kelly Ayotte, a candidate for the Republican Senatorial nomination in New Hampshire, is now giving her support to amending the Constitution to get rid of birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants.
On the bright side, though, she is saying we should of course be cautious about the whole thing, and says the best focus now is to secure the border.
As the Huffington Post reports, Ayotte told a voter who asked about the issue:
“Well, I know that there’s a number of proposals that are being brought forward right now to look at that issue. And I think that we should. Because one of the issues is we have to, obviously, when we look at our Constitution, if we’re going to propose any changes to it we have to be very thoughtful and careful about that because it’s a great document. But that said, we have people who are coming here just to become, to get healthcare and then leave. And they’re not even being part of our society and there’s something wrong with that. But fundamentally, I think the best thing we can do right now is secure our borders, enforce our existing immigration laws and English is the language of our country.”
