    They should make it to everyone in united states, Just not the ones that are borned in the united states. What happends when a person wants to come in the united states, But they are not borned in the united states, So they will be treated differently because they were from somewhere else.

  • The 14th amendment should not be changed

  • The fourteenth amendment should be changed.

    It should be changed, Because it grants citizenship to whoever was born, But shouldn't it give rights to someone who lived for very long, But has to meet his family in a different country every year. Then, He has to be a very lucky person to become a citizen for the U. S.

  • Absolutely needs to be changed...Granting privileges based arising from a crime, incentivizes crime

    Holman v Johnson[3] Lord Mansfield CJ set out the rationale for the illegality doctrine.

    The objection, that a contract is immoral or illegal as between plaintiff and defendant, sounds at all times very ill in the mouth of the defendant. It is not for his sake, however, that the objection is ever allowed; but it is founded in general principles of policy, which the defendant has the advantage of, contrary to the real justice, as between him and the plaintiff, by accident, if I may say so. The principle of public policy is this; ex dolo malo non oritur actio ["no action arises from deceit"]. No court will lend its aid to a man who founds his cause of action upon an immoral or an illegal act. If, from the plaintiff's own standing or otherwise, the cause of action appears to arise ex turpi causa ["from an immoral cause"], or the transgression of a positive law of this country, there the court says he has no right to be assisted. It is upon that ground the court goes; not for the sake of the defendant, but because they will not lend their aid to such a plaintiff. So if the plaintiff and defendant were to change sides, and the defendant was to bring his action against the plaintiff, the latter would then have the advantage of it; for where both were equally in fault, potior est conditio defendentis ["stronger is the position of the defendant

  • Yes, it needs to be changed now!

    The only part that requires change is the part concerning citizenship. Instead of saying any person born in the U.S. is a citizen, must be changed to; to be considered a legal citizen, any person born in the U.S. must (1) have at least one parent with legal citizenship and (2) testing from an approved facility proving said person is the biological parent to aforementioned child. Both (1) and (2) must be satisfied in order to satisfy the requirements for citizenship.

    Other changes that need to be made are with hospitals. They should require birthing mothers to show a legal id or drivers license issued by the state prior to being admitted.

    Hospitals refuse to provide needed life saving treatments every day because the patient either doesn't have insurance or the insurance they have doesn't cover said treatment. The same goes for prescriptions.

    If they can refuse cancer treatments, they should also refuse services to illegals.

  • The 14th amendment should be amended, not repealed

    The 14th amendment should be changed because it is being misused by illegal immigrants to gain citizenship without going through the legal process of citizenship. The 14th amendment does contain valuable rights and should not be repealed. However, the statements being misused should be changed in such a way to uphold the legal process of citizenship

  • Yes, it has been abused for creating anchor babies

    Some of the "no" answers don't even have their amendments straight. The 15th, not the 14th granted the vote to former slaves. Last year, nearly 300,000 Chinese women came to the US to give birth, and many more illegal immigrants come here for the same reason. Not to become citizens themselves, but to take advantage of entitlements. Congress needs to address this issue.

  • Those voting no should at least get their facts straight.

    The concept of "anchor babies" did not exist when the 14th Amendment was written after the Civil War, mainly to assure former slaves of citizenship. One person seemed to confuse this with the 15th Amendment, which gave black males the right to vote. Last year, nearly 300,000 Chinese women came to the U.S. to deliver their babies, and many illegal immigrants use the law, as well. Legal immigrants should certainly be granted citizenship for their children, but this law is being abused, and should be addressed in Congress.

  • I do believe that it should not be changed

    I do understand the abusive part in which people abuse the system but illegal immigrants do have a purpose to come to America many don't have good lives and besides they add on and take jobs that many people don't do how many illegal immigrants do you see doing construction jobs and garbage collecting look out for the people who do things like they are working people by the ways of capitalism it is very hard to survive in America when you don't work and these people want there children to have better lives and grow up in places that is better for a child

  • Those voting yes are wrong

  • You gud brooooooo

    This law should stay the same so everyone is equal. So no other laws are interfered with. I think if the 14th amendment wasnt there different kinds of people would be treated differently. So I think the 14th amendment should stay. So everything is the same and everyone else is equal.

  • Don't change the 14th amendment.

    If you were born in the United States then what type of citizen would you be? I do not think they should change the 14th amendment. All men are created equal and they should not change that law now, And never. Also, Being a United States citizen is very lucky to have.

  • It should not be changed

    It gave peace. It would be very rasist if we did not do this. This is a very importent milestone in American history. We would not be where we are without it. It changed many peoples lives. Peace is extremely importent in the world with no peace there is war.

  • I don't agree with either

    I think that it's great that when people are born in america they are americans because everyone is equal. But i also agree that it should be tweaked a little like not just people born in the US but people who have been there for a long time and who consider it home. Although being undocumented is wrong or sneaking into the US you can easily become documented so you can come into the US why sneak in when its easy to become documented.
