Gov. Nikki Haley in recent comments to the National Press Club was critical of presidential candidates trying to restrict birthright immigration. The majority of South Carolinians want to do away with the birthright immigration, which allows children born to illegal immigrants in America to automatically become U.S. citizens.
Legislation has been introduced in Congress to limit citizenship to children whose parents are either citizens or lawful permanent resident aliens who live in the United States.
We do not need elected officials like Gov. Haley who do not want to reform birthright immigration.
