Trump's quote, btw, that we're the only country in the world that allows this, is incorrect. Most countries in South and Central America allow it, as does Canada,

Trump believes, and is on camera here, saying he can end birthright citizenship with an executive order. He's wrong - the 14th Amendment grants it. “All persons born or naturalized in the US, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the US & of the state wherein they reside.”

"Opponents of illegal immigration cannot claim to champion the rule of law and then, in the same breath, propose policies that violate our Constitution.

In the aftermath of the Civil War, members of the 39th Congress proposed amending the Constitution to reverse the Supreme Court's notorious 1857 Dred Scott v. Sandford ruling denying citizenship to slaves. The result is the first sentence of the 14th Amendment: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States."

The plain meaning of this language is clear. A foreign national living in the United States is "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" because he is legally required to obey U.S. law. (By contrast, a foreign diplomat who travels here on behalf of a foreign sovereign enjoys diplomatic immunity from—and thus is not subject to the jurisdiction of—U.S. law.)"

 I am an anchor baby. I am anchored here in the strongest ways possible, through my ancestors’ lives and the love with which they kindled me. I am anchored through my Indian ancestors, whose lives here defy the markings of time; by my African ancestors, who paid for their passage with their freedom and their very selves; and by my Spanish ancestors, whose tones resonate in my voice, echoes over centuries. They all anchor me. I cannot be moved. More so: I will not be moved.

All children born of parents in the USA legally, citizen or not should be citizens by birthright, except for the constituitionally unclassified members of visiting military or diplomats.

A person here illegally or without permission or license is outside jurisdiction so his/her children are born stateless.
