 Join New America Media and The Opportunity Agenda for a telephonic
news briefing on efforts to amend the 14th Amendment of the U.S.
Constitution to deny birthright citizenship to any child born in the
United States to parents who are undocumented immigrants. This
proposed change specifically targets immigrant women. The 14th
Amendment, adopted in the wake of the Civil War, reversed the Supreme
Court’s ruling in the Dred Scott case which declared that people of
African descent were not and could never become citizens of the United
States.

The call will feature experienced legal advocates and organizers who
will give an overview of efforts to bring this issue into the federal
or state legislative arena. There will also be time for questions.
