Citizen by Birth

  • Aired: 11/07/2015

  • Rating: NR
It's always been the American way: if you're born here, you're a citizen. It's in the Constitution. But could that change? A growing movement on the right insists if your parents are undocumented - you should be, too! Studio guests: American Friends Service Committee's Amy Gottlieb, Assemblyman Michael Patrick Carroll and Rutgers Law School Newark Dean Ron Chen.
