ABSTRACT
The article discusses the contention over birthright citizenship in the U.S. amid the national debate over illegal immigration in 2010. Under the 14th Amendment, a person who was born in the country automatically becomes a citizen. The key argument of opponents pertains to the role of birthright citizenship in encouraging continued illegal immigration. One drawback of disallowing citizenship for children of illegal immigrants is the increase in the size of the illegal population.
