I have mixed feelings and thoughts about this, but I have also deliberated the same issue.
You think just an exclusion of that part of the text would solve it? I think so, as far as text is concerned. What do you propose for actual reality? How do we secure the border, and what do we do with the illegals and their currently legal babies?
I think maybe secure the border first, then change the constitution, then it will apply to all new illegals.
I think you make a great point.

1st and foremost the legal agents sworn to uphold it are held to that standard or are put in prison at the very appearance of impropriety.
2nd Only Human Beings have rights under the constitution. Corporations are not people, legal fictions cannot and never have constitutional legal protections. Corporations also can only exist for 10 years, and that liscence cannot EVER be renewed and their existence must benefit the public and there are no legal protections for the owners for malfeasance. I.E. penetrating the corp. veil is extremely easy.
3rd Those who benefit the most from the system pays the most tax rates, this cannot be undone by law only by another amendment.
4th. Congress cannot approve their own wage increase without increasing the minimum wage by twice the amount they approve for themselves.
5th Trusts are eliminated.
6th The Federal Reserve and all Central Banks are abolished.
7th The income tax is reverted to the correct and original meaning, Gains from a business venture, ie profit. Trading time for money does not result in a gain.
