I'm strongly opposed to repealing it, and believe our immigration laws are already too strict. I think people are arrogant and elitist to think we should decide who is "worthy" to enter this country. People should be able to freely move where they want to.
I totally agree in an ideal situation except our government has fucked this nation up so horribly (with welfare and market interference) that there's a wide open arena for all kinds of people to come in and create a chaotic domino effect.
The dirty secret about Bush is that he wasn't really against immigration and for tightening the borders, as seen by the fact that he didn't really do anything about that. In fact, he was trying to get the international highway set up from Canada to Mexico. Which again, I don't have a problem with either, in and of itself, except that the government's doing it as a part of a long-term scheme to take away our national sovereignty. Along with creating a North American currency.
If all these things were just being done by societies finally cooperating together in a libertarian fashion (unlikely as that may be) I couldn't feel better about it. But it's being enforced by the powers that be.
Also, I'm not saying I'm for repealing the 14th amendment. I don't really know what the solution is except to overthrow the government. Maybe the Canadians and Mexicans can help us with that.

You have a better idea? If the kids are citizens and the parents are illegals, and we don't deport citizens but do deport illegals as the laws say, this is simply the logical conclusion.
If parents don't want to be separated from baby, don't drop baby in America knowing you have no right to be here in the first place. Otherwise, we should keep the baby and throw the illegals out.
What exactly is wrong with this? It closes up the anchor baby loophole.
How about making immigration easier for immigrants rather than deporting illegal ones; instead of deportation which I think is cruel and unnessecary, we could simply grant them citizenship.
