Scott Walker Won't Try to Repeal Birthright Citizenship

GOP presidential candidate and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker doesn't believe birthright citizenship needs to be repealed. Despite some of his rivals calling for an end to birthright citizenship, Walker said on CNBC that he was "not taking a position one way or the other." Although on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, he stated that he would not seek to repeal birthright citizenship. He said “The law is there, and we need to enforce the laws, including those that are in the Constitution.”

He went on to say “Any discussion that goes beyond securing the border and enforcing the laws are things that should be a red flag to voters out there, who for years have heard lip service from politicians and are understandably angry because those politicians haven’t been committed to following through on those promises.”

On CBS's "Face the Nation" on Sunday, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said “It’s in the Constitution, and I don’t think that we should be looking to change it.” On the other hand, Ted Cruz said “Birthright citizenship as a policy matter doesn’t make sense. It incentivizes additional illegal immigration.”
