Should the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution be repealed or modified to restrict more precisely the definition of who may claim citizenship?

This year’s essay reflects on the heated debate over the status of undocumented immigrants and their American-born children, especially in light of the importance of this topic during the 2016 presidential election.
