Birthright Citizenship?

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., made headlines over the weekend when he suggested that the Senate should hold hearings on the constitutionality of the Fourteenth Amendment, which has been interpreted to ensure that anyone born in the United States is automatically a citizen of this country.

I think this sets a dangerous precedent. Not only would be isolating a large group of citizens, we would commit entire generations to live in fear. You have to wonder, if such a thing passed how many other amendments would proposed to be repealed in the name of securing the border as well?
