Dick Durbin: Another Constitutional Illiterate

Durbin joins the ranks of the Sixth Circuit Court, Time Magazine’s managing editor, and leftwing media hacks who haven’t read or understand the Constitution, so they make up shit as they go along.

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) said in a congressional hearing Tuesday that a young person who is an illegal alien in the United States today may someday become president.

“When I look around this room, I see America’s future, our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our Soldiers, our congressmen, our senators, and maybe our president,” Durbin said immediately after having asked all young persons in the room to stand if they were currently undocumented (READ: ILLEGAL) aliens who would be eligible to become citizens if the DREAM Act were passed.

Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5:

“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.

Right now, not even legal immigrants are eligible.
