If they've crossed into this country north or south, or on the coasts illegally, the 14th doesn't apply, then either.
I don't recall this ever being brought before the Supreme Court, I know they ruled on legal citizens having children here. I would think one of these groups advocating that position would bring a legal challenge first before dicking around with the Constitution.
for that decision to be extended to illegal aliens, there would need to be a clarification.
For there to be a court case, there would have to be an action for the plaintiff to file on... such as an attempt to deport Dreamers...
Legally, it already does extend. That is the point.

If they live with you, don't you mean they will be coming HOME to leftovers?
NO, silly... ICE is coming over for leftovers. my illegal immigrant family got the meal on the big day, before any legal citizens. as it should be!
No, legally it is assumed to extend
The situations are quite different
This conflict did not exist in the previous ruling, because the plaintiffs were here legally

For murder its fine.
They aren't citizens so no rights will be extended at all.
You do realize just using a Latin phrase over and over does nothing to advance your argument, right?
Jus soli is simply "right of the soil." It's used so lawyers can look and feel important.

Also while at it, change the 2nd to include "right of the people, currently in the military, to keep and bear...etc"
The amendment is fine. If you are born here, you are American.
