Semi-protected edit request on 16 January 2015[edit]

The section of this article regarding citizenship of children born in the United States, whose parents are not citizens is written from a politically charged perspective. The author delegitimizes the clear and longstanding amendment language which grants citizenship to all people born in the United States. The political viewpoint projected within the current language of the article asserts that the enforcement of this clause of the 14th Amendment is somehow in dispute, when it is not. This political wording is almost certainly written from an individual who holds strong opinions regarding the immigration of Mexican citizens into the United States, and the author likely disagrees with the protections granted by the 14th Amendment and therefore is writing in such a way as to weaken its scope.
