Wednesday, Lou Dobbs appeared on Good Morning America and spoke about the US birthright citizenship law in the US. Senators John McCain, Mitch McConnell, Lindsay Graham are looking at the constitutional right of the Born in the USA law.
Lou Dobbs said that 400,000 babies were born to illegal immigrants in the US last year and the senators would like to stop that. The US is the only country that allows people born in the US to automatically be a US citizen.
