Republicans have been pushing to have hearings to change the 14th Amendment. The way it stands now, if you're born in the U.S., you're an American citizen. We asked you, the listeners, what you thought about changing the 14th amendment, and we hear what you have to say. We're also joined by The Takeaway's Washington correspondent, Todd Zwillich, who believes that Republicans are just nibbling around the edges of the whole immigration issue.
Todd says that it is nearly impossible to alter the Constitution, but that holding hearings lends a certain amount of legitimacy to an issue. Russ Feingold, chair of the Constitution subcomittee has said that such a hearing will not happen on his watch. The real issue, of course, is what to do about the illegal immigrants who are are already living in the United States.
