Finally, our Arizona government has dared to protest that the 14th amendment needs to be changed. Because of the direction our society is heading, the 14th amendment does not correctly classify how the United States has evolved. The states on the border of Mexico are battling a highly complicated illegal alien issue. The 14th amendment states “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States,” although this has worked for hundreds of years, the flourishing issue of illegal parents with legal children by a new ratification of the 14th amendment. If a child of illegal parents is born in the United States, the child should not be left here alone with citizenship while their parents are deported; therefore, the child should be sent back to his home country with his family. The United States cannot afford to provide and support these children with taxpayers’ money. In the long run, it would be most beneficial for both parties to adapt the amendment to our society’s changes.
