    Be specific. You want to abandon the principal that someone born in the US is a citizen?

    Yes, I want to abandon the principle that someone born to illegal aliens is a US citizen. If the parents had no right to be here then the child has no right to citizenship. Boot 'em.

    So, you would repeal the 14th. Amendment?

    It does not require repeal but I would not oppose repeal given that its usefulness has ended.

    It is still "useful" for the protection of liberty.

    and, it does not require repeal, not unless someone wants to make a law that people born in the USA aren't American citizens due to their parentage.

    Not really. Our liberty is no longer protected. It never should have applied to illegal aliens.

    It wouldn't require repealing the entire amendment. All they need to do is pass another amendment repealing that one specific part.

    I've said it before, but I'll repeat it: I would not eliminate it completely. I would modify it to be that one must be born here AND have at least one biological parent already a citizen.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    What specific part? What amendment has been written nullifying a provision of an another amendment?

    That's all nice like apple pie, but the books are full of arcane, stupid, unenforceable and not practical to enforce laws, that can't readily be changed. Our immigration laws are an interesting example of such. You can't round up 12 million people and deport them (current immigration laws are not practical to enforce) and the immigration bill that is currently before congress is example of how laws can not be readily changed....

    Current laws are not difficult to enforce at all. Nobody says 12 million people need to be rounded up and deported. I don't know of any law that calls for that kind of action. In fact, I don't think I've heard any politician call for that to happen. But...the fact is, unless one has political ulterior motives...such as Obama has...there really is no reason at all NOT to enforce the laws.
