I actually agree with the idea somewhat. I believe that the law should require that at least one parent have a "legal presence" such as citizenship, permanent residency or a visa in the USA for a baby born here to be an automatic citizen. But a state cannot change that. Only a Constitutional Amendment can change that.

Obviously Arizona knows it can't change federasl citizenship laws, and that this is going to be challengd. I think the goal is to get it before the Supreme Court, and have them rule on the intent of the 14th Ammendment.

Actually States do have some role, what do you think residency requirements are for? Many/all states deny residency to illegal aliens, thus without residency they can not obtain certain benefits, hence why they have children born here who gain residency and according to DoS and FAM1111 thay also gain citizenship status.

The linked OP article is from Feb 2011.

Face it, the only way to stop anchor babies is to amend the Constitution. Once Congress passes it the 38 states have to ratify it.

The already did over 100 years ago. And one state challenging the law isn't enough to get the supreme court to even care about.

Actually the Constitution doesn't even have to be amended. All it would take is for the SC to revisit the meaning of birthright citizenship and the way it was intended to be translated from the writer's of it.

We don't know how they intended it since illegal immigration was not a concern of the founding fathers.

What is "Federal Citizenship Law"?

Citizenship is defined and granted per DoS FAM1111, it is nothing but policy, policy is easily changed.
