When did the SC rule on the intent of the 14th Ammendment? I believe they have ruled on individual cases only. One of the authors, when clarifying intent, stated it did not include 'aliens.' He didn't specify illegal aliens, but I hardly think he meant to exclude legal immigrants, but not illegal aliens.

Why shouldn't Arizona try to change the law, or do you prefer the illegal alien way, which is if there's a law you don't like, just ignore it?

Immigration fight: Bill to end 'birthright citizenship' advances in Arizona - CSMonitor.com


A Senate panel on Tuesday gave a nod to a set of bills that deny 'birthright citizenship' to children born to illegal immigrants in Arizona. Other measures to continue the state's illegal immigration crackdown are also moving ahead.

Feb. 23, 2012 -- Tucson, Ariz.

Arizona lawmakers aren't finished yet in their push to make life more difficult for people living in the state illegally. Less than a year after passing a tough immigration law that prompted protests, boycotts, and a federal lawsuit, they are advancing an array of new measures to crack down even harder on illegal immigration – with some of the proposals just as likely to attract legal and civic resistance.

In a challenge to US Constitution’s 14th Amendment, a Senate panel in the Republican-controlled state legislature late Tuesday gave the green light to two companion bills that would deny automatic US citizenship, sometimes called "birthright citizenship," to children born to illegal immigrants.
Hate to mention this but this federal government is intent on keeping that border open. Sorry bout that.
