the whole issue would disappear by just clarifying what the 14th amendment says on anchor babies.
in most countries in the world, at least one parent has to be a citizen before one can be born automatically with same citizenship.
being granted automatic citizenship by simply being born in the country is not observed by most countries anymore. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jus_soli
in the last decade, automatic citizenship was amended by Ireland and india....the usa should follow suit.
this would be an easy way for a politician to have his name remembered in the history books.
get it done.
some good reading...

The allowed abuse of the 14th amendment by illegal parents has complicated every single issue and has created total chaos in this country! It's time to put a stop to this nonsense and restore the rule of law.

How The Government Could Make Public College Free For All Students
Tuition at public colleges came to $62.6 billion in 2012, according to the latest government data. Thatís less than what the government already spends to subsidize the cost of college through grants, tax breaks, and work-study funds, which comes to about $69 billion. It spends another $107.4 billion on student loans.
That means that with the money it already spends to make college affordable, the government could instead subsidize public college tuition, thereby making it free for all students. This would not just mean anyone could attend a higher education institution without worrying about cost, but it could incentivize private ones to reduce their costs in order to compete with the free option.

I take it the illegals will get another handout and pay no tuition.
