[Eliminating “birthright citizenship” is all about punishing babies and children for the “sins” of their parents. This would create a permanent underclass of “stateless” residents, born and raised in the United States, but with no legal right to reside here or to the Constitutional protections and privileges associated with citizenship – and no citizenship status anywhere else as well… what are these kids supposed to do?!? What happens when their parents are deported, and their home country refuses entry to their children? The idea is repugnant, and downright unAmerican. This, along with the ridiculous and racist barrier idea, shows that the mainstream of the Republican Party has gone off the deep end. -Thomas]

Those two ideas have floated to the top of the list of possibilities
to be included either in an immigration-enforcement bill later this
year or in a later comprehensive immigration overhaul.
