This will ensure that people come here just to pop out a instant citizen will not be able to benefit from it regardless if they come here illegally or through birth tourism.

If they are born to parents who are here on a green card then sure. Those green card holders came here legally, stayed here legally, are here permanently and are usually working their ways towards becoming citizens.VISA holders, and illegal aliens the answer is no. Coming across the border and popping out a baby shouldn't grant their kids citizenship. I think that is a good compromise.
I go along with that.

I answered "depends.." but my answer really falls between "Depends..," and "No".
If one or both of the birth parents are citizens or legal residents then yes. Tourist, student, illegal alien, etc. then no.

What are you talking about? This is about birthright citizenship.
