ABSTRACT
The article attempts to explain how the provision of so-called birthright citizenship of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution has stimulated controversy as of 2010. It recalls that conservative politicians were asking for the abolition of birthright citizenship for illegal immigrants' children, during the recession of the early 1990s. Also cited are the advantages of this citizenship. It adds that a Pew study conducted in August 2010 confirms that the nation is experiencing a dramatic demographic change.
