ABSTRACT
The article argues that opponents of birthright citizenship in the United States are ignoring the larger issue of illegal immigration. Rep. Nathan Deal has proposed legislation that would end the practice of granting citizenship to children born in the United States, whether or not their mothers live there legally. The provision in the Fourteenth Amendment granting the right is open to interpretation. If passed, Deal's bill would most likely not be upheld in the courts.
