We've kind of lost what it means to be a citizen in the US thanks to illegal immigration, anchor baby policy, and sanctuary cities.    So what should be the determining factors for what makes a person a "citizen"?

Net tax payer. Bye bye democrats. 😆

Born in the USA of parents who have been legal citizens for at least 20 years before making babies.

"In general, the basic rights normally regarded as arising from citizenship are the right to a passport, the right to leave and return to the country/ies of citizenship, the right to live in that country and to work there." (wikipedia)

 

This seems like a decent definition of what citizenship is regardless of country. As for what it should be, if we use that definition as a base it would be someone who contributes in a measurable way to the output of a given defined nation/country. As for the "anchor babies", I know that the law enables this to be reality. However, in this case I would support a measure where the parents are given the option to go back to ____ or start the legal process of becoming a citizen.
