Could this be true?

From a Washington Times story:

Mr. Huckabee, who won last week’s Republican Iowa caucuses, promised Minuteman Project founder James Gilchrist that he would force a test case to the Supreme Court to challenge birthright citizenship, and would push Congress to pass a 28th Amendment to the Constitution to remove any doubt.

This is a bit bizaar!  Huckabee has been accused of being too liberal and soft on immigration and this comes along… I’ve got to believe this is a trial balloon to see how people react… a poor man’s poll.  I have not seen any confirmation yet from his campaign that he truly supports dropping birthright citizenship for illegal aliens, but the day is still young.

Personally, I’m against constitutional amendments unless they’re absolutely necessary.  I tend to favor this position (nothing good should come directly out of something illegal, at least not on purpose), but I need to think more about what’s really needed here.  More later.

Hat Tip to memeorandum.
