Repealing or modifying the 14th Amendment would be incredibly touchy, far beyond the implications for illegal immigrants because of its history. It was, afterall, intended to grant citizenship to slaves. The inevitable parallels which will be drawn by the one side between the circumstances of slaves and illegals (however controversial such analogies may be) will make things very bitter.
It is far more likely in my mind that if the Republicans get the next nomination as well and can get a good grasp on the SCOTUS, that they'll bring a case under the Jurisdiction clause in hopes of broadening the exceptions defined in United States v. Wong Kim Ark. I doubt they'd get it.
From a conspiracy angle one would expect something quite different. Given the assumptions that the NWO has its origins in Europe, includes racism in its elitist ideology, and seeks something akin to the Nazi vision (where most of a united world labors to support a dominant "capital" nation) then I would expect them to try and effect a jus sanguinis modification- requiring at least one citizen parent for example. The aim of such a conspiracy would presumably be twofold-
1. To weaken America as an independent nation through furthering conflict over our immigration policy and creating questions of national identity/loyalty for individuals by promoting citizen/non-citizen marriages.
2. To justify within the NWO racist ideology the relegation of America to a subservient role in the new order.
Of course, I'm not saying I wholeheartedly believe that part, it's just what I'd expect if there really is a potent NWO movement which has an ideology similar to historical ideologies which are comparable to the popular conception of an "NWO".

The truth is, the NWO is a bunch of purple elephants that can shapeshift, and they live under the ground.

one might be inspired to wonder whether the Nazis lost or just switched venues
