Newly surfaced comments from Harry Reid show that he advocated for the exact same position in 1993. According to the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), “Reid (D-Nev.) introduced legislation to clarify the scope of the 14th Amendment’s Citizenship Clause and to end the practice of granting U.S. citizenship to children born to illegal immigrants.”
In a section titled “Basis of Citizenship Clarified,” Reid’s bill explained:
…the Congress has determined and hereby declares that any person born after the date of enactment of this title to a mother who is neither a citizen of the United States nor admitted to the United States as a lawful permanent resident, and which person is a national or citizen of another country of which either of his or her natural parents is a national or citizen, or is entitled upon application to become a national or citizen of such country, shall be considered as born subject to the jurisdiction of that foreign country and not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States within the meaning of [Section 1 of the 14th Amendment] and shall therefore not be a citizen of the United States or of any State solely by reason of physical presence within the United States at the moment of birth.[S.1351, Sec. 1001]
Speaking before the Senate, Reid said that “no sane country” would allow for birthday citizenship. Source
