Latest Immigration Debate: Birthright Citizenship

According to an article by the Associated Press, a group of Republics believe there is an erroneous interpretation of the 14th Amendment and have triggered its review by the Supreme Court. This has become the new immigration battle in the United States, after the failure to pass the Dream ACT late last year. 

This attempt is following the lead of Arizona, which passed a controversial law last year, granting the police for greater power to question people about their legal status. Lawmakers have portrayed their states as under siege of an ïllegal alien invasion.” They have been accused of being derogatory, calling children of illegal immigrants “anchor babies”. They argue that they are standing up for victims of crime commited by illegal immigrants.

Above, is the video coverage of the debate via CNN. What are your opinions on birthright citizenship and immigration reform?
