    If your parent told you when you were say 17, guess what your not a citizen.. I don't think the kid should be punished. So some sort of way to fix what's already broken.

    I also think if you serve honorably you should get citizenship, period.

    I am an Italian anchor baby, born in Italy while my father served. I had to denounce my Italian citizenship at 17 when I joined the Army

    That's how it ought to be. Not a fan of doing this with an EO, but if it gets a process moving where it ends up in the USSC, I can get behind it. The issue needs to be resolved, or the loophole closed. I'm certain the authors of 14 didn't intend for our laws to be flouted this way.[/QUOTE]

    You do know that it takes 2/3 of each house of Congress and 3/4 of the states to ratify an amendment?

    Yes, but harken back to my first post. What may happen is that Trump's EO sparks a debate that eventually puts the issue before SCOTUS for an interpretation on 14.

    Yup as it should be. However this should be a common sense change.
