Interview with Professor Edward J. Erler on the "anchor babies" controversy. A historical review of the 14th Amendment and American immigration policy. What did the authors of the 14th Amendment intend to accomplish back in 1868? Would Donald Trump's plans to "end birthright citizenship" require amending the Constitution? Or could Congress simply take action? An examination of differing precedents and interpretations of the 14th Amendment. A frank analysis of the current highly charged political atmosphere. Plus, further notes on American sovereignty. With music and listener calls.
