With so much being reported on the political debate over the 14th Amendment - that which grants U.S. citizenship to people born in this country, and to immigrants who become naturalized - it might help to know just what some GOP lawmakers are discussing as they suggest revisions to end automatic citizenship, now a constitutional right, for children of undocumented immigrants.
So here it is, Section 1 of the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution:
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. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
