Ahead of Hearing on Birthright Citizenship, Members of Congress, Civil Rights Leaders Respond to Latest Anti-Immigrant Attacks
As House Judiciary Subcommittee Presides Over Latest GOP Immigration Stunt, New Report from the Alliance for Citizenship Documents How the 114th Congress Has Become the Most Anti-Immigrant Congress in Recent History
Washington DC – On Wednesday at 10:00 a.m., members of Congress will join with Civil Rights leaders to respond to the House Republicans latest anti-immigrant stunt – holding yet another hearing on ending birthright citizenship. Such a move would radically reinterpret the Constitution to end a fundamental American right and bring the Department of Homeland Security into delivery rooms nationwide.
Also at the event, the Alliance for Citizenship is releasing a new report documenting how the Republican-controlled 114th Congress has earned its place as the most anti-immigrant Congress in recent history.
