Is it constitutional to invite illegals into this country and then just give them full citizen rights as is being done now?

How about following the lead of the present president and bypassing the constitution with an executive order? Dems seem to think this is legal and binding if Obama does it, how about another president?

I support this. The 14th Amendment was about making sure freed slaves were citizens, never about illegals. Also, let's not forget back then there was no welfare and since so many are on welfare it's a problem. I guarantee if we got rid of birthright citizenship and they were unable to get welfare many would leave.

By stripping I assume you mean those who have already been deemed citizens by this "practice"? None of the bills introduced in congress include stripping citizenship from anyone it is merely about ending birthright citizenship for any future illegal alien's offspring once the bill has passed.

Citizenship can be stripped from anyone under certain circumstances, however.

Whenever Steve King is involved I cringe. The guy is one of the most openly racist politicians around. I agree we have to fix this immigration issue but Steve King is a detriment to Republicans nationally.

Really? Where is your proof that King is a racist?

I'd agree but; I don't think birthright can be yanked from a US citizen born here or at least to an American but out of country. Tho the law CAN be changed to BLOCK future anchors from getting birthright.

Just think, we will no longer be subject to the "but we can't separate families" mantra. That, and calling those against illegals "racists." Anyway, if the parent is illegal, then s/he needs to take his/her children back home with them. That way, the family remains whole, and our taxes won't be spent supporting the unification of families here in the States. Very simple.
