Apparently the 14th Amendment is an issue among Republicans. One stated that Mexico would not be so crazy as to have that. I would just like to take the time to post a brief translation of Article 30 of the Constitution of the United Mexican States:
Mexican nationality is acquired by birth or naturalization. Mexicans by birth are:
- Those born in the territory of the Republic, whatever be the nationality of their parents.
- Those born abroad, children of Mexican parents born in the national territory, a Mexican father born in the national territory, or a Mexican mother born in the national territory.
- Those born abroad, children of Mexican parents by naturalization, a Mexican father by naturalization, or a Mexican mother by naturalization.
- Those born on board Mexican ships or airplanes, be they military or commercial.
