States seek to tackle birthright citizenship, illegal immigration

From the ajc:

State lawmakers from Georgia and several other states are gathering in Washington this week for the announcement of a new front opening up in the war over illegal immigration.

They are taking aim at the 14th Amendment, which grants U.S. citizenship to children born here even if their parents are in the country illegally. The lawmakers disagree with that practice, complaining illegal immigrants and their children are sapping taxpayer-funded services and attracting more illegal immigrants to the United States.

[Observers familiar with the] group’s efforts said they could include legislation aimed at withholding state benefits and services from children born here to illegal immigrants.
