Efforts to gut the Fourteenth Amendment’s guarantee of birthright citizenship gained additional support in Congress this week. Three new co-sponsors signed onto Rep. Steve King’s (IA-4) bill, H.R.140, the “Birthright Citizenship Act of 2013.”

H.R. 140 now has twenty-three co-sponsors. Paul Broun (GA-1), Sam Graves (MO-6), and Tom Graves (GA-14) signed on as co-sponsors on February 26.

On January 25, the bill was referred to the House Subcommittee on Immigration And Border Security.
