Wrong........you'd better look around....many undocumented workers have children born in the US who are citizens of the US. Many will be future doctors, lawyers, and presidents.
Or field hands, maids, gardeners etc.

Consider yourself whatever you want.

You're still an illegal, and to wax Biblical... the sins of the fathers shall be visited on their sons to the third and fourth generation.

Your parents are illegals, you're an illegal, your sons, and your grandsons will also be illegals.

You, and your kind, are no more than a boil on Job's ass.

How can citizenship be passed to the child if the parents don't have the citizenship to pass?
Because many of the children are born here......citizen at birth.

I have been working in the construction industry for 15 years as an electrician wiring new homes for many home builders. I help keep home affordable for all americans........that's why I should be given amnesty.

You work for less than the prevailing wage which depresses the wages of everyone in your industry. Your children will be forced to work for even less money than yourself and your grandchildren will be forced to migrate to some other country just to feed their kids.
