How politically untenable is GOP chatter about repealing the 14th
Amendment? Even anti-illegal immigration hardliner Lou Dobbs doesn't think it's a good idea. "I part ways
with the senators on that," Dobbs told Fox's Megyn Kelly about
suggestions from Lindsey Graham, Jeff Sessions, and Jon Kyl that the
14th Amendment should be changed to deny citizenship to the children of
illegal aliens. "If you're going to insist upon the rule of law and
order--and I do--I have to insist that we recognize those anchor babies
as citizen of this country."
