GOP congressional nominee Raul Labrador is "not taking a position" on whether the U.S. Constitution should no longer grant native-born children of illegal immigrants citizenship, his campaign said Thursday morning.
Wednesday's blog said Labrador's position was "unknown."
"Raul is not in favor of repealing the 14th amendment but feels there are other options to look at within it for refinement," said campaign spokesman Phil Hardy in an e-mail this morning. "Therefore the not taking a position."
Democratic Rep. Walt Minnick said he opposed ending citizenship rights for the native born, which are guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. It was the only question on the 12-item survey on which the two candidates disagreed. Both were rated by the group as "true reformers."
Minnick received a 'B' grade because he has a voting record as an incumbent. Labrador was not eligible for a letter grade because he has never been in Congress, according to an e-mail to the Labrador campaign from NumbersUSA.
Labrador submitted his answers after NumbersUSA published its report and an inquiry to the campaign from the Statesman Wednesday morning. Labrador was originally listed as having not completed the survey.
