Rand Paul Finds Common Ground With Donald Trump On Birthright Citizenship

Although they've had a history of bickering back and forth, at the second 2016 Republican presidential debate, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) made a bit of a turn when he defended Trump's push to put an end to birthright citizenship. Paul said, "I hate to say it, but Donald Trump has a bit of a point here." Paul referenced the Supreme Court case that interprets the 14th Amendment to include birthright citizenship happened in the early 1900s and discussed someone with a green card.

Paul then went on to say "There's never been a direct Supreme Court case on people who are here illegally, whether their kids are citizens. It hasn't been completely adjudicated." When Trump released his immigration platform, the issue of birthright citizenship dominated the GOP field. Trump argued "The 14th Amendment says very, very clearly to a lot of scholars, not television scholars, legal scholars, that it is wrong. Mexico and almost every other country in the world doesn’t have that. We are the only ones dumb enough, stupid enough.”

On the other hand, Carly Fiorina added that immigration wasn't a new issue by saying “Meanwhile what will continue to go on is what's been going on for 25 years — nothing." Fiorina blamed President Obama by stating "Democrats don't want this issue solved, they want it to be an issue that they can use."
