Today David Huffines took to twitter to verbally suggest that Representative Gonzalez's parents should have been deported and then went o fn to challenge Birthright Citizenship for those who don't know Congressman David Huffines of Texas is also the House Majority Leader and the legislative director of the Republican Party. For somebody with that much influence you would think the party's leading representative would know more about the United States Constitution especially coming from a party who claims to be proud of it's libertarian roots. However libertarians are people with strong convictions and ardent believers in enforcing and defending the United States Constitution and creating more personal liberties so what does it say when the man who can influence the legislative direction of the majority wants to destroy the United States Constitution?
Section 1 of the 14th Amendment reads as follows:
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
So David Huffines call to eliminate the rights of Birthright Citizenship was not just a slap in the face directed at Representative Gonzalez and his family, not only to every immigrant legal or illegal who have come into this country but a direct slap in the face to anyone who values the United States Constitution including the proud group of Libertarians who David Huffines hope don't hear this message and still show up to vote on election day for the Republican Party. This is proof however that the Republican Party does not value our Constitution and unless Republicans call for Congressman Huffines resignation in the open it shows that they corroborate the message of destroying the United States Constitution one article at a time. Congressman Huffines owes not only Representative Gonzalez and his family an apology but an apology to every hard working American who has fought for this country and many who have paid for the high price of freedom with their own lives.
