What is your opinion on this? Do you think birthright citizenship in the United States should be eliminated?
"Birthright" establishes a principle of equality that dates back to the very creation of U.S democracies. Donald Trump has recently proposed to end birthright citizenship. He has argued that granting automatic citizenship to children born in the U.S. remains the biggest magnet for illegal immigration. The United States confers citizenship by what's referred as "jus soli" -- Latin for right of soil -- as opposed to "jus sanguinis" -- Latin for right of blood. The supporters of Trump are arguing that immigrants are taking advantage of this practice by giving birth to "anchor babies" -- children who could eventually help their parents get citizenship. While others argue that it's a time honored American practice that should endure. Donald's proposal requires a constitutional amendment with a two thirds majority vote in both the House and the Senate, followed by ratification of three-fourths of the states or a constitutional convention called for by two-thirds of the State legislatures-- which have a very thin chance of success.
