GOOD! This is great news! Maybe finally we won't have a border problem.
It appears they don't want YOU to have a birthright citizenship. Maybe, they will force everyone in the country to pass a citizenship test in order for a person to be deemed WORTHY of citizenship. Otherwise, what? Millions of people with no country? Perhaps they will make it to where if you aren't conservative enough you will be denied citizenship. Maybe this is just the start of a larger Conservative plan, first take away the 14th Amendment, then the 13th Amendment is next, that way they can reintroduce slavery to this country. Are you ready to have your citizenship forcibly stripped from you? Your birthright stolen by those who see you as just a commodity to be bought and sold?
It's important to note that having an "anchor baby" won't do much to help a Mexican mom become a U.S. citizen. Because citizen children cannot sponsor their parents for citizenship until they turn 21 -- and because if the parents were ever illegal, they would have to return home for 10 years before applying to come in -- having a baby to secure citizenship for its parents is an extremely long-term, and uncertain, process.
Brown (1976) and Harris (1969) provide detailed demographic information on each man.
*Most of the 1787 delegates were natives of the Thirteen Colonies. Only 9 were born elsewhere: four (Butler, Fitzsimons, McHenry, and Paterson) in Ireland, two (Davie and Robert Morris) in England, two (Wilson and Witherspoon) in Scotland, and one (Hamilton) in the West Indies.
*Many of them had moved from one state to another. Seventeen individuals had already lived or worked in more than one state or colony: Baldwin, Bassett, Bedford, Dickinson, Few, Franklin, Ingersoll, Hamilton, Livingston, Alexander Martieno, Luther Martin, Mercer, Gouverneur Morris, Robert Morris, Read, Sherman, and Williamson.
*Several others had studied or traveled abroad.
No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.

They aren't talking about amending this Amendment, they are talking about a complete repeal.
The House legislation would amend Section 301 of the Immigration and Nationality Act to clarify those classes of individuals born in the United States who are nationals and citizens of the United States at birth. Technically, it would not overturn the 14th Amendment, which would require three-quarters of states to ratify a joint resolution of Congress.

If that were the case, all they would have to do is amend the Amendment. But they aren't they are wanting to completely repeal the Amendment.
