The original person who came to the USA used an arranged marriage then brought his parents, then his sister came each time she got pregnant. That was thousands of miles away. Consider how easy it is to do it from Mexico. Millions have done it.
Then lets go back to the original premise of this thread:

The intent of the mid 19th century 14th amendment had nothing to do with illegal immigration nor birth tourism to the United States during the 20th and 21st centuries..

The Supreme ruled on Obamacare on their perception of intent rather than 200 plus years of precedent setting rulings which hinged on literal wording.

Can't have it both ways. Either Obamacare means what it says or 100 plus years of birthright citizenship practice is invalidated.
