It's not JUST illegals that are taking advantage of the current interpretation of the 14th amendment.

Try googling Birth Tourism USA

Amnesty democrats who currently control Congress aren't about to let the current incorrect interpretation of the 14th amendment be changed because the current interpretation is working so well for them. I mean, after all, don't we have a crop of welfare dependent future democratic voter anchor babies turning 18 every year and a new crop of welfare dependent future democratic voter anchor babies born each year?

Stranger things have happened in history: the Dems are beholden to other groups as well which may very well cancel out the (diminishing) power of the Hispanic Caucus.

So true. However, what can we expect, when we have made it known to the world that the coveted U.S. citizenship can be easily obtained simply by giving birth on U.S. soil. To confer citizenship to a child, without requiring citizenship or even allegiance from the parents, is pure and utter stupidity. If you could open an account at a bank and be granted total access to the contents of its vault, wouldn’t you open an account? After emptying the fault, you can simply close your account and enjoy the generosity and idiocy of the bank.

Adding a new crop of 300,000 plus welfare dependent future democratic voter anchor babies to the democratic voter rolls EVERY YEAR as these anchors become old enought to vote is too important politically for hispandering amnesty democratic politicians to give up. Anyway, if the 14th amendment could suddenly be changed the dems would still have 18 years of 300,000 plus welfare dependent future democratic voter anchor baby crops built into the system.

I'm not exactly sure how the law works, but, if an illegal alien gives birth here, thus making the kid a natural born citizen, that means they have amnesty or some crap like that? They can't kick out the parent because of the child? Is that how it works?
And they use that only due to a twisting done about the original intent of a law. The law was never put in place as a way around the immigration laws or to get every pregnant foreigner a right to stay forever and be given all the welfare handouts possible.

Nor would the amnesty republicans like McCain or Graham.

I agree. They would fight it tooth and nail under the guise of Policital Correctness. Then we have a Hispanic Supreme Court judge who would definately fight against it.

Note we have eight non Hispanic Supreme Court Justices who would be more than enough to cancel out Sotomayor if push came to shove.

And I will apologize up front here for whipping out the 'race card': Justice Thomas; being a Black man, trumps any variety of Hispanic-------especially being the latter in high positions are also almost always White in the genetic sense.
