ABSTRACT
The authors comment on the risks associated with changing the 14th Amendment as stated in the U.S. Constitution. They mention that the suggestion of several U.S. legislators to change the legislation can weaken the social cohesion among the people in the country without addressing issues posed by illegal immigration. They add that ending birthright citizenship can only cause problems in the future and it cannot fix the problematic immigration system of the U.S.
