    I saw your interview with the congress women from Texas. She had stated that the United States is the only country that offers citizenship to those simply born here. A two minute web search resulted in the following countries that also have this right:

    • Antigua and Barbuda
    • Argentina
    • Barbados
    • Belize
    • Bolivia
    • Brazil
    • Canada
    • Chile
    • Colombia
    • Dominica
    • Dominican Republic
    • Ecuador
    • El Salvador
    • Fiji
    • Grenada
    • Guatemala
    • Guyana
    • Honduras
    • Jamaica
    • Lesotho
    • Mexico
    • Nicaragua
    • Pakistan
    • Panama
    • Paraguay
    • Peru
    • Saint Christopher and Nevis
    • Saint Lucia
    • Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
    • Trinidad and Tobago
    • United States
    • Uruguay
    • Venezuela

    It would be nice if CNN held their guest to some standard of the truth or clarified the facts. Otherwise excellent interview. Thank you

    Your one-sided "inhumane" horrors stories of the immigration issues has turned this life long CNN viewer to another news source as well as a 24 year Democrat to the Republican side. CNN was once a voice of the American people, but no more.

    The hypocrisy of these Republicans. They don't ask about citizenship when this country need bodies to go to war for this country. These politicians should be ask how many illegal aliens died in Iran or Afghanistan. This is all politics.

    As I see it the 14th amendment doesn't need changing. It needs rewording to better identify it's intended purpose. By a better definition and description there should be no misinterpretations. How many countries follow the idea that a birth on that country's soil consummates citizenship when the parent or parents are not citizens?

    Don’t the parents still have a similar application process to those without children? Isn’t it better if the children grow up able to work and attend school and contribute to the community, not hide. Giving them choices, hope and opportunity. Not making them into criminals before they can walk.
