Letter: 14th Amendment is clear regarding U.S. citizenship

14th Amendment is clear regarding U.S. citizenship

In a letter on Aug. 26, the writer said, “Liberalism has succeeded in twisting the definition of the 14th Amendment to make us believe that children born in this country to women in the United States illegally are automatically American citizens.” He added that we should check the 14th Amendment as written.

I did. “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.”

It’s kind of specific: All persons born or naturalized.
