The Impact Of American Citizenship On Children From Illegal Parents

During this presidential election some candidates have talked about removing the 14th amendment of the US constitution. The 14th amendment states that any person born or naturalized in the United States is a US citizen (U.S. Const. amend. XIV). This issue is unacceptable on various levels. We will focus on the impact of children with illegal parents and how this may affect their lives. I will analyze three different types of literature, first a website, Children of Illegal Immigrants Fight for Parents (“Children of Illegal Immigrants Fight for Parents,” n.d.). Secondly a magazine article, should the U.S. End Birthright Citizenship? by Senator David Vitter and Michele Waslin of The New York Times Upfront. Lastly a peer-reviewed scholarly journal article, Behavioral Functioning among Mexican-origin Children: Does Parental Legal Status Matter? (Landale, Hardie, Oropesa, & Hillemeier, 2015). These three pieces of literature will be analyzed following the CSUN Library Evaluating Internet Resources guidelines.
