    Too bad you failed to spell "completely" correctly. Have you read the US Constitution? Or even heard of it?

    I will spell completely correctly and I agree with the effort completely. Granting citizenship to individuals born here because their parents came here illegally remains an illegal act and is something you seem to ignore. Children often pay the price for illegal actions of their parents but for some reason not in this case. Illegal means illegal, what part of that do you not understand?

    People acquire all sorts of rights when they're born, simply because they were born. I don't see why it should be any different with citizenship, and I don't see why we should punish newborns for actions taken by their parents.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    So what I've been say about the jurisdictional part of that clause all along is correct.

    I just flipped back through 9 pages of thread, and didn't see what you've been saying all along about the jurisdictional part of that clause.

    Could you please reiterate your position, so that I can respond to it?
