The Right of Birthright?

In “A Birthright That Shouldn’t Be,” Charlotte Allen,¬† a contributer to the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal, argues for the institution of stricter immigrant laws as a solution to the growing number of children born from illegal immigrants.¬†Allen notes the expensive costs states endure to feed and care for the children and the difficulty Congress would face in trying to change the 14th ammendment, which gives all children born in the United States citizenship. Ultimately, she says, the only way to solve the dilemna of birthright is to stay true to our immigration laws.
