keep up.
Being born to a foreign citizen parent here legally is a whole lot different than being born to a parent that is here illegally. Which is it?

Actually, the WKA ruling spells out the exact conditions under which one may have birthright citizenship in the very last paragraph. Illegal aliens' children don't meet those conditions.

The fact remains is that you are trying to compare parents here legally as in the above case to illegal alien parents and there is no comparison.
Exactly.

Any one in which a U.S. citizen brought the case to the Court. Again, when it is determined that U.S. citizens lack the standing to question the validity of their government officials, the U.S. is no longer a Constitutional Republic, it's a dictatorship.

If republicans don't care about robots and Asians taking our jobs, why is there so much (anger) about South American immigrants taking our jobs?

Answer: Because white republicans don't care about jobs, they just hate non-whites coming to America.
Stop it with the racist stuff, please. I'm a "white" Repub and I def DON'T want ANY kind of illegal alien in the US, even blond hair blue eyed Swedish women with big boobs here in the US. Sheesh!

Agree and HOW! WKA's mom and dad were legal aliens, but the illegal alien fans ain't honest enough to own up to that. Tho their tactics are to muddle the line between legal and illegal people which is straight up dishonesty.

there is no legal distinction currently in the US ( hence the proposed bill and the whole point of this thread ).

Glad to hear it. The bill being proposed however has nothing to do with your parent's legal status in this country when you were born. This is the illegal immigration forum and the bill seeks to put an end to a practice that bestows birthright citizenship on babies born from illegal alien parents. I don't know why you seem to be confused.
