United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 1898

Wong Kim Ark's parents were legally recognized residents in the USA when he was born. Even though the parents were subjects of the Emperor of China, they were not illegally present in the USA and were legally working.


That is a case before the concept of illegal immigration became prevalent. No one has challenged the status of children born of illegal immigrant parents residing in the United States.

Everybody who enters our country citizen or guest is entitled to our rights.
You get in trouble you still have a right to a trial. If someone does you harm you can sue them. Even if you're not a citizen. You have the right of free speech and freedom of religion and freedom of the press. Our rights are not reserved for only the citizens.
You can't vote. That's the only right citizens get that visitors do not.

Correct.

Therefore, jus soli is legally applicable and held until challenged and/or further clarified.

Which surprises me that people don't seem to be grasping the concept. I would be interested in seeing how the courts weighed in on this and hear both sides of the arguments.
