citizenship is not a birth right

While checking out an immigration diary at Red State, rehoboam tipped me off to a very, very interesting article in the Washington Post, authored by George Will and entitled “An argument to be made about immigrant babies and citizenship” (March 28, 2010). George Will’s argument is that To end the practice of “birthright citizenship,” all that is required is to correct the misinterpretation of that amendment’s first sentence: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” From these words has flowed the practice of conferring citizenship on children born here to illegal immigrants. Mr. Will is an intelligent man, and his article draws on the authority of Dr. Lino Graglia of the University of Texas law school, so this argument they’ve put forward deserves scrutiny and consideration. I’m not a constitutional scholar, by any means, but you and I both know how to read so let’s investigate this claim.
