So, what is it going to require to clarify that?
He/she said in the post you responded to, an Amendment.

An arguement can easily be made that it doesnt mean any foreign born baby is a citizen and was just more of a custom that we did.
It is time for an amendment to make it clear. Anyone up to know will retain their citizenship but from now on only babies born to CITIZENS OF THE U.S. are citizens.
This automatic citizenship is one of the dumbest things we did.
Once that matter is settled, US citizens should have to pay up their entire national debt on that day, divided by many US citizens are left in the country.

All of the above. I'm a career criminal. Because, as racists like you know, even legal hipsanics have criminal natures embedded too deeply in their DNA to ever work an honest job. Of course 100% of us are inherenetly evil!
But seriously, before you think you're really clever and take sarcasm literally, I want to say for the record, I already dismantled your accuasation that I lied. Can you come up with some new material, since repeating that is in fact a lie?
Yet another batch of lies from the mincing little momma's boy, who seems to think that his half-assed semantics disguise his dishonesty.

Do the world a favor, maggot. Go dive under a bus and turn yourself into your best and highest use -- fertilizer. You're so full of it, that you'd be a very high grade source.

Ralff #29 - If that is how this progresses, at the hands of the Supreme Court, then so be it. That's all we can possibly ask - render a decision and go from there.

No race problem here #30 - Be careful about betting your life my friend, this could be a proposition that costs you.
In any event, look at the US v Kim Wong Ark decision as it regards the 14th amendment. This decision sheds brilliant light on the subject.
Other than that specfic case I can only echo what americanpride3 stated in post #24.

Children of foreign diplomats are recognized as being citizens of the country that sent their parents there.

I beleive same rule should apply to anchor babies.

USA grant citizenship to babies by soil and not blood and this needs to be changed, if not we will have a child from both US parents who born abroad may not be a US Citizen under certain circumstances, however a child from illegal parents is US citizen and may be candidtate for future US President in the future.

Other countries made the change and so we can.

In 1983, for example, England amended its jus soli policy so that children born in the United Kingdom were only granted citizenship if one of their parents was either a citizen or could prove some sort of permanent residency in the country.

And India moved away from granting birthright citizenship in late 2004 to only allowing those born in the country to gain citizenship if both parents are citizens or if one parent is a citizen of India and the other is not an illegal immigrant.

A list of countries, by population, that grant birthright citizenship includes the United States; Brazil; Pakistan; Mexico; Colombia; Argentina; Canada; Peru; Venezuela; Malaysia; Chile; Ecuador; Guatemala; Dominican Republic; Bolivia; Honduras; Paraguay; El Salvador; Nicaragua; Panama; Uruguay; Jamaica; Lesotho; Trinidad and Tobago; Fiji; Guyana; Belize; Barbados; Saint Lucia; Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; Grenada; Antigua and Barbuda; Dominica; and Saint Christopher and Nevis.

Most Europeans countries like France, England, Germany...etc have changed the birth right to citizenship by blood, which means a least one parents need to be a Citizen.

As you see above USA is listed with 3rd world countries and it's time for the change before is too late.
