An individual, "C", being born in Country X, only becomes a (natural-born) citizen of Country X if and only if:
...BOTH the biological mother AND biological father of "C" were citizens of Country X at the time of "C" being born.
"C" will not automatically become a citizen if:
A. One or both of the biological parents have "settled status" and is not a citizen of Country X; or
B. One of the biological parents, not being a citizen of Country X at the time of the birth of "C", married a citizen of Country X prior to or at the time of the birth of "C"; or
C. One or more of the grandparents of "C" are citizens of Country X, but neither or one of the biological parents of "C are citizens of Country X; or
D. The identity of the one or both of the biological parents of "C" are unable to be verified or one or both are unable to be located and/or "C" has been adopted and/or taken into care at the time of birth in Country X (Appendix I - in such an instance, efforts will be made to trace the nation-origin of "C" and if such efforts are successful, "C" will be returned to said country; in the event that efforts are unsuccessful, "C" will be granted natural-born citizenship by whatever legislature or official is responsible in Country X such as a Secretary of State or a Home Secretary.)

Woman works in another country of which she is not a citizen. Her visa in that country is not considered a visa for immigration purposes. Meaning as soon as the employer released her she must leave the country.
She meets a man and gets pregnant. She has the baby in the country she currently works in but is not a citizen of. What nationality is the child at birth?

The constitution is not up for debate when it comes to guns, why should it be up for debate when ir comes to being born on American soil?

All countries should just unite and change birth area from countries to Earth citizenship. While moving onto space. Ban all illegal space aliens from trying to get Earth citizen ships because they might be plotting to takeover the planet and wipe Human race out.
