FNC’s Doocy: Lawyers I’ve Talked To Say Trump Is Right on Birthright Citizenship

Fox News Channel “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy said that lawyers he has conversed with say GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is correct that the 14th Amendment does not require birthright citizenship on Wednesday.

Doocy, after playing GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s exchange with FNC host “Bill O’Reilly” over the 14th Amendment and birthright citizenship, where Trump and O’Reilly disagreed over whether the 14th Amendment grants birthright citizenship, said, “I was talking to a former DOJ attorney yesterday about the 14th Amendment, and they — before O’Reilly and Trump even talked, and they said that because the 14th Amendment was written specifically about slaves after the Civil War, many lawyers think the 1898 case [United States v. Wong Kim Ark], involving this fellow here in this country to Chinese parents was wrongly decided by the Supreme Court. So, I see what Mr. Trump is talking about right there. But still, practically, what’s going to happen?”

Fellow co-host Brian Kilmeade answered that, “You can’t kick out 11 million people that are here. You can make it less attractive. You can try to shut off the magnet, but there’s we can afford to kick out 11 million people. Because they all have to get hearings, we all have to find them. It’s not practical.”
