Should "Birthright Citizenship" Be Abolished?

Today's New York Times Room for Debate poses the topical question:  Should "Birthright Citizenship" Be Abolished?   Margaret Stock, Ediberto Roman, ImmigrationProf blogger Rose Villazor, and John Eastman discuss the issue. Only Eastman seems to disagree with the great weight of scholarly authority (including conservative law professor John Yoo) on the question that the Fourteenth Amendment settles the matter; only Eastman seems to offer support to the position of Donald Trump and others to revisit the question of birthright citizenship under the Fourteenth Amendment
