25. They're basically claiming that only children of citizens are citizens

Of course, if that what was intended, they would have drafted the 14th amendment that way. They didn't. They said "... and subject to the jurisdiction thereof...".

It's ridiculous to claim that immigrants aren't subject to the laws of the United States, even if they're not citizens.

It's meant to exclude invading armies and diplomats.
