Immigration -- Attack on Birthright Citizenship

Immigration -- Attack on Birthright Citizenship

Let's file this under "None of us know what we're doing."

In United States v. Wong Kim Ark, the Supreme Court rejected "the idea that one's status depends on his parent's status." In the rare chance that the Supreme Court does strike down birthright citizenship, the result would be chaos. "The court cannot create a timeline, indicating all those born of the undocumented before a certain date are grandfathered in and all of those after are not," wrote Joe Sigg of the Arizona Republic. "So, if the court makes a change and reverses itself, the citizenship of 311 million Americans is in doubt and must be proved - this means everyone - no exceptions...All would temporarily be undocumented or illegal aliens!"
Ok. Got that Senator Paul? Senator Vittor? May I just say that your ideas are "crazy" not well suited to the real world?

More work to do.
