The nationality of the child id the same as that of the parents. which side of the border the little shit pops out should be irrelevant if the parents are across the border illegally.
What objective fact am I missing here?
Having the child be the same nationality as the parents makes sense. Much as I may favor a law limiting birthright citizenship, I am not willing to throw out the Constitution. The 14th Amendment says:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
So, the only way to do this would be by a Constitutional Amendment.
Not necessarily. If those born here to illegals were covered in a treaty between two countries it would not be the case (as is true for diplomats). They would have to be under the jurisdiction of the country of their parents origin, or a special court set up by the treaty.
I’m not sure that’s completely accurate. In the U.S., treaties have the same force as statutes, and statutes cannot trump the Constitution. Diplomats are a whole different animal altogether. I once did a paper on diplomatic immunity. As I recall, I learned a lot. Unfortunately, I have forgotten it all.
