I do know why the provision was put into the 14th, and rightly so. Those people were brought here and were slaves and didn't have status. The 14th corrected that.OK, 65 years.
But then, you do know why that provision was put in the 14th, right? There was a whole class of people born here whose parents weren't citizens.
Which is exactly what you are arguing the case should be.
But it couldn't foresee there would be a time when there would be millions of people coming illegally and some of them giving birth, giving their offspring citizenship status.
