      Huckabee vows to defy birthright citizenship

      By Stephen Dinan
      January 8, 2008

      Mike Huckabee wants to amend the Constitution to
      prevent children born in the U.S. to illegal aliens
      from automatically becoming American citizens,
      according to his top immigration surrogate — a radical
      step no other major presidential candidate has
      embraced.

      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.

      The former Arkansas governor thinks the case against
      U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose
      Alonso Compean was railroaded, Mr. Gilchrist said.
      Ramos and Compean are serving lengthy prison sentences
      for shooting a fleeing drug-smuggling suspect in the
      buttocks.
