the Birthright Citizenship Amendment

The formal process of amending the Constitution is
cumbersome and slow.  While this fact explains why relatively few
amendments have been adopted, it does not discourage advocates of
constitutional change from proposing them. Four amendment proposals that
have gained considerable attention are the Balanced Budget Amendment,
the Birthright Citizenship Amendment, the Equal Rights Amendment, and
the Overturn Citizens United Amendment. Select one of these proposals as
the topic of your initial post and use the assigned resources to inform
yourself about its purpose and the arguments of its supporters and
critics.

In your initial post of at least 200-250 words, briefly
summarize what the proposed amendment would do and the problem its
proponents say it will solve. Explain the main pros and cons in the
debate about the amendment. Evaluate the proposed amendment from two
perspectives:

  • Your own political philosophy, values or
    ideology. (Justify your assessment by clearly explaining your political
    values and why they lead you to support or oppose the amendment.)
  • The likelihood that the proposed amendment will
    eventually be ratified to become part of the Constitution. (Justify your
    assessment by explaining how the proposal will or will not, in your
    judgment, survive the ratification process.)

Fully respond to all parts of the question. Write in your own words. Support your position with APA citations to two or
more of the assigned resources required for this discussion. Please be
sure that you demonstrate understanding of these resources, integrate
them into your argument, and cite them properly.
