Ariz. bill takes on birthright citizenship
Arizona lawmakers, once again diving into the national debate over illegal immigration, proposed a bill Thursday that would challenge automatic U.S. citizenship for children of illegal immigrants.
The proposal by Rep. John Kavanagh (R) is the second time this year lawmakers in a state have targeted the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment. A similar proposal was filed last week in Indiana.
Leaders of an effort to get proposals considered in other states hope that lawmakers in 10 to 15 states will follow suit.
