Conway favors citizenship for children of illegals

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jack Conway
has taken a stand opposite his Republican counterpart on birthright
citizenship, saying children born in the U.S. to illegal aliens
should automatically become citizens.
Conway told reporters on Wednesday that he disagreed with
Republican Rand Paul's opposition to birthright citizenship. Conway
said the 14th Amendment makes clear that "anyone who is born in
this country should be a citizen."
Paul, who won the GOP nomination to run for the seat of retiring
Sen. Jim Bunning, had said in a television interview shortly after
the primary election that he opposes citizenship for children born
in the U.S. to parents who are illegal immigrants.
