Just because something is 'the law' does not mean said law cannor be changed as needed.

Witness the old Jim Crow laws against 'people of color' till they were declared unconstitutional in the 1960's.

Birthright citizenship is simply a loop hole illegal aliens use to gain benefits in this country. The law was intended to grant citizenship to freed slaves in the civil war era.

I think the OP knew this. Just think she/he is trying to be a ballbuster knowing *the law is the law* term. Some day this loophole will be justified.
Then what will she/he say, anchor babies use to be allowed. Illegal
moms know of this loophole so they make SURE they get over here before
little pedro pops out.

If the parents hadn't broken the law and come here illegally, this would not be an issue. Their very presence in the country is fraudulent and should negate any other claims.

The law says I can own a car and drive one, but if I got the car through money gained by dealing drugs, I lose the car if I'm caught.

That is why the immigration laws need to be changed.
