The Fourteenth Amendment clearly states that "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."  I believe it is important to uphold the will of our nation’s Founding Fathers and of the United States’ Constitution.
