<<>> Regarding birthright citizenship, Edward J. Erler, author of The Founders on Citizenship and Immigration, says: "In sum, this legacy of feudalism--which we today call birthright citizenship--was decisively rejected as the ground of American citizenship by the Fourteenth Amendment and the Expatriation Act of 1886. It is absurd, then, to believe that the Fourteenth Amendment confers the boon of American citizenship on the children of illegal aliens. Nor does the denial of birthright citizenship visit the sins of the parents on the children, as is often claimed, since the children of illegal aliens born in the U.S. are not being denied anything to which they have a right. Their allegiance should follow that of their parents during their minority. Furthermore, it is difficult to fathom how those who defy American law can derive benefits for their children by their defiance--or that any sovereign nation would allow such a thing."
