another crap piece of legislation

Citizenship by Birthright Up for Debate

Last week we get the disgusting "English as the official language" garbage and today it's "no citizenship by birth". When did our country become so very hateful?

True. Although I think when the 1868 constitutional amendment was added, they never had any idea this would ever happen with Mexico. I'm not sure how I feel about it: a little baby born here is a full citizen while neither parents are. I don't know what the answer is.
English as the official language?
I didn't know our language was under attack! I see no threat to the primary language of our country.
What a waste of time and resources.

I have to agree with t this will present a very large legal problem. Do you send the parents back to their home country and keep the kids here or send them all back. This would be true if mom and dad were doing the process legally ie if mom or dad were convicted of a felony. Any legal people out ther care to comment?

I say let those parents become citizens if they want to & leave that family alone.

It's not just me, right? There seems to be so much absolutely hateful legislation coming out of Washington these days.
