But Miller argued that his legislation would not require a change to the Constitution. He pointed to a different section of the amendment that says, "Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
For those screaming "BUT ITS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL", Miller has a valid point. I don't think he'd be that stupid to introduce a bill that is blatantly unconstitutional. He thinks he has a fighting chance.

It all depends on how the courts read into this bill, and their political agenda.

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of the citizens of the United States, nor shall any State deprvie any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law, nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction, nor deny to any person the equal protection of the law." -- Amendment XIV to the U.S. Constitution. That makes it clear that the law is unconstitutional.

No, it isn't. Your clue is "AND" subject to the jurisdiction. Illegal aliens are not subject to our jurisdiction in the true sense of the word. They are subject to the jurisdiction of their own homelands and so are their offspring.

Exactly! It would also be a huge border deterrent.

Surely you jest. In an average year some 10,000 bills are introduced in Congress, of which about 1% get passed. Many of them (like this one) are political grandstanding that the author knows have no chance of passing.
