Judge Napolitano on Ending Birthright Citizenship: "Nothing but political chatter"


Via Think Progress, here's Fox News legal analyst and host Judge Andrew Napolitano sounding off on Republican efforts to outlaw birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants:

BILL HEMMER: But if the [Birthright Citizenship Act] were carried out, you had 100 co-sponsors about a year ago, it would require at least one parent to be a US citizen for a baby to become an American citizen at birth. If you were to enact the BCA as some refer to it, is that a way to get around the 14th Amendment, and get done what people like John Cornyn, and John Kyl and John Mccain, and we heard from John Boehner, are trying to do.

ANDREW NAPOLITANO: No! That would not be a a way around it. There is no way to get around the 14th Amendment. These people took an oath to uphold the Constitution whether they agree with it or not! All of it not and part of it!
