Well i thought some of you may clear a few things up on the subject.
The definition varies depending where you look so i will ask you to please refute my thought here if possible.
Natural born citizen means to be born in a certain country regardless of citizenship of parents.
Are children born here citizens or not.

14 ammendment sec. 1
All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Seems pretty clear to me that if a person is born here they are granted citizenship by way of birth regardless of family or friends citizenship status.
So what is all this dreamer shat everywhere? We have laws that make them citizens and the only battle should be about if their guardians should be givin some type of protective status too.

I am prepared to view any facts you may have on the subject but srry i am now full of opinions and need no more.

This is my understanding as well....and the source of the term "anchor babies".

Geographical location of a woman's vagina during delivery determines the nationality of the child.

Does that sound as completely f'ed up to everyone else as it does me?

You are mistaken about what DACA is.
It's to help people who were brought into the US as kids. Not people born in the US.

the problem is, Dreamers were not born in America, they were brought to America illegally as minors.

Serious questions, did you honestly NOT know that? If not, it kind of shows how fake the MSM is.

Know that you know this fact(DREAMERS are not American), how does that effect your opinions?

Except for children of foreign diplomats. They do not qualify as natural born citizens of US.

Dreamers are those who qualify for the Dream Act. Minors brought to US by parents who were illegal.

Yes i have heard those points and have heard dreamers described both ways. At one point they are immigrant kids born here and another point they are just immigrant kids here.

My point being is that any child born here is a citizen.

I can not help the rest of them by means of constitution.

in other words one lawmaker will describe them one way another does not.

That was when we had folks dumping their kids at the border. I remember the "all hands on deck" calls for nurses.

If you heard that dreamers are people born here .... you're misinformed. Their is actually no argument at all. If you are born here. You're a citizen. That's the law.
Dreamers specifically and only refer to kids brought to the US by their parents.

Can you explain that a bit more?

Please.

I know currently the major issue is unaccompanied minors from South America.

Oh yea i heard it and is likely the reason the thought of making them magically legal gets high numbers in national poles.

because they conflate the two in reporting and they do it very often
