Donald Trump's "Magna Carter" on immigration policy has conservatives chomping at the bit. His call to either change the 14th amendment or get rid of it completely is gaining momentum even from the likes of Scott Walker. And so it appears that another right wing extremist position is making its way into becoming part of the GOP party platform. Here's Charles Payne, filling in for Neil Cavuto, getting very aggressive to Rick Perry because the Texas Governor refuses to try and change the 14th amendment. Payne's response is - anchor babies!!!!!

Payne: Would President Perry have the will to say, we know there is a game belong played and it's taking advantage of our kindness, where people come here have babies, anchor babies and then everyone comes from their country here and they can;t be removed, would you have the will to turn that around and how would you?

Perry:...if you say you want to do away with the 14th amendment, I think you need to look back at a little history, when's the last time we changed the constitution of this country? I think it was in the early nineties and it took 202 years to do that. I know how to deal with the solution and it's not changing the constitution, that's political rhetoric.

What's the solution, sir?

Perry:I told you what the solution is, secure the border.

This is not rocket science...

Payne: With all due respect, I've seen footage where families are walking through the Rio Grande and they're being filmed and they know it. They're just so many of them...(Perry: Charles)

If you have two hundred, almost three hundred sanctuary cities that have rolled out the red carpet and they'll telling these people - (Perry: Charles) get here, have a baby (Perry: You're talking to somebody) and you never have to leave.

It's not the state of Texas' responsibility...

Payne: I know that, I'm just saying, as the president of the United States. building a wall does not seem like it would be enough if the inducement on the other side is so great!!!

I'm sure Salt Lake City's tourism department is working on a new marketing campaign towards undocumented immigrants that says, take a nice walk through the desert, hop on a plane to our city, drop a few kids, get protected by the 14th amendment and work at a luxurious hotel - all for the low, low price of $299.99

Can you help us out?
