ABSTRACT
The authors discuss the debate concerning the 14th Amendment in the U.S. which states that any child born in the country is a citizen, regardless of the citizenship status of the parents. According to them, the U.S. Constitution defines the basic conditions of the citizenship of children but the Congress has the right to decide whether and how far to offer citizenship. They argue that the Congress should clarify issues such as immigration and naturalization in relation to the highest ideals and core principles of the U.S.
