That would be the Dimbulb From Searchlight, Harry Reid! In 1993, Senator Reid, courting the anti-Republican Hispanic vote, no doubt, sought to end the practice.
The Washington Times notes:
Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) has introduced a comprehensive immigration reform bill (S. 1351) that includes a provision that would limit citizenship to those whose mothers are United States citizens or legal permanent residents. However, Senator Reid's proposal is to amend only the Immigration and Nationality Act, not the Constitution. Additionally, Senator Alan Simpson (R-WY) is planning to propose an immigration reform package that will include a provision similar to that of Senator Reid's. Whether or not Senator Simpson's recommendation will limit the right to citizenship to only those whose mothers are citizens or legal residents remains to be seen.
Look for Reid to do the John Kerry two-step of how he was for it before he was against it. Or something like that. Are you paying attention, Nevadans??
