That law is as old as the 2nd Ammendment - good idea, let's change them both, ok?
The law may be old but the specific interpretation of giving "birthright" citizenship is relatively new. All we need to do is have the Supreme court issues and new interpretation or have congress do it. It's not as hard as some of you try to make it out to be.

So, if needed, you'd be first in line for those jobs, same wages, same working conditions? The state of Georgia tried this already.
**********
Georgia's tough anti-illegal-immigrant law drove a sizable fraction of the migrant labor pool out of the state, and as a result, "millions of dollars' worth of blueberries, onions, melons and other crops [are] unharvested and rotting in the fields." The jobs the migrants did paid an average of $8/hour, without benefits, a wage that is so low that the state's probationed prisoners have turned it down. Guest-writing in the Atlantic's economics section, Adam Ozimek doesn't believe that the farms would be viable if they paid wages that legal American workers would take: "it's quite possible that the wages required to get workers to do the job are so high that it's no longer profitable for farmers to plant the crops in the first place."
**********
Tell you what, I'd much rather pay for free education, healthcare, housing, food, childcare etc. etc. to people who worked to put food on my table rather than giving it for free to the idiot who doesn't work and drives his Escalade around all day.
You're not paying attention. American workers should never have to work for these type of slave wages. This unwanted swarm of illegal aliens has depressed wages below the poverty level. By paying for illegal aliens healthcare, education, housing, food and childcare, you are giving free money to the guy in the Escalade. The guy in the Escalade, riding around doing nothing, is the employer who exploits illegal alien labor and expects our government to pick up all their benefits. The`American workers suffer, the taxpayers suffer and your buddy in the Escalade rides into the sunset with a trunk full of undeserved cash.

I don't think you're paying attention.

Putting Americans to work in the fields (like that'll ever happen) at two times or even three times the current wages will put most farmers out of business. And the ones that aren't put out of business will increase produce prices to a point that it'll be a luxury.

You're putting this on the government's shoulders when it's really the American people who don't want to perform this labor. We have become a population of selective workers. Why else would this country (and my company who will even train you) have a job surplus?

What you're describing is a socialistic society.

Do not underestimate the determination of a quiet man. They are quiet because of fear but they will strike hard because its a do or die situation for them ... You on other hand are driven by hate ,stupidity and impotence!
