    I read this article on World Net Daily about anchor babies, and the point that caught my eye is:
    I'm no lawyer either, so I did a search for the decision of US vs. Wong Kim Ark and found this. From the final paragraph of the decision, it looks to me that Joseph Farah is reading it wrong and children born here of aliens are indeed citizens.
    So the question is, am I reading this correctly?

    Sindawe, sad as it is, I believe you're reading it correctly. IANAL in any case.

    Looks very clear to me and I have to agree with you. However, this is off topic here.

    We'll reopen this for now and see how it goes. Sindawe believes this issue is one of civil rights and will be debated in civil terms.
    Prove him right, please.

    Akhil Amar Reed, a professor of Constitutional law at Yale, once suggested that there was a way "around" the 14th Amendment, but I can't remember right now what it was. If you a search on his name you may come up with it. It's summer, and I'm too lazy to do it myself.
