A conservative Utah legislator, Republican Paul Ray of Clinton, says he will sponsor a resolution asking Congress to end birthright citizenship. Ray wants to change the 14th Amendment so that children born in the U.S. are not automatically made citizens. One local legislator, Republican Jack Draxler of North Logan, says he has mixed emotions on this issue. He says he sees this as part of the immigration problem but he feels legislators need to be careful about changing the Constitution. Draxler says he is willing to take part in the discussion but he does not see this as the way to resolve the problem. Draxler says he gets a lot of input from constituents on this issue and they seem to be evenly divided about what should be done.
