Make no mistake, eliminating birthright citizenship would require an overthrow of established traditions. It implies a reckless urge to break down ancient legal principles without inquiring why those traditions existed in the first place. In short, it requires precisely the sort of thing conservatives are supposed to be against.
I am a fan of birthright citizenship. America is the greatest country in the history of the world. Birthright citizenship is a reminder to all who are born here of that. Birthright citizenship reminds us that we can be great simply because we were born in America. While you might disagree, I believe it's that kind of confidence that inspires American greatness.
