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.

Note: This is not about your feelings on how to change the situation, if you feel it should be changed. This is just about policy (either by EO, legislation, or constitutional amendment) should be adopted on the subject.

My personal answer to the question is No.
Same answer as to the question, "Should a cat born in a kennel be called a dog?"

How about this. If a legal citizen adopts the kid, then they can stay.

I have to disagree, in general. This could only work if the biological parents willingly give up their parental rights. That chance is slim to none.

Considering the whoopla when kids were separated from their parents when they illegally came across the border, I highly doubt this would be tolerated well.

I believe if children are given up for adoption parental rights are given up.

I partly agree with that.
what I think is that the baby is physically a citizen. born in Rome as they say and if by accident extraordinarily lucky. but the parents are not and have the choice to apply but meanwhile the baby goes up for adoption. some mothers may choose this route if they think it best for their child. others who are trying to scam the system will think twice.
