Colo. GOP Rep. Changes Position on Immigration Reform

A Colorado Republican congressman who only a year ago supported an end to birthright citizenship now backs a pathway to citizenship for young illegal immigrants.

Rep. Mike Coffman told a town hall crowd in Aurora, Colo., on Sunday of his position change, according to the Denver Post. While Coffman said he supports a pathway to citizenship for young illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, he wasn’t as sure about allowing adult illegal immigrants to become citizens.

“I haven’t resolved the question about a pathway to citizenship for (adults) who’ve overstayed their visa or crossed the border illegally,” Coffman said.
