The citizenship rules you support, if in place (and should have been in place, or were in place, if you believe the Constitution reads that way) would imply that Blacks born in the mid-late 1800’s shouldn’t have been US citizens because their parents were not. There would remain to this day millions of people in this country that were not citizens because of that. Several generations, with no ‘home’ country to be deported to.

EDIT: The real kicker, someone is born a ‘criminal’ without thought or intent or action other than just being. This constitutes an ideal world for you?

Unless there's a proposed Amendment to the Constitution, it can't fly. The interpretation of the 14th Amendment has historically been jus solis.
Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.
