In the United States, that would quickly become a humanitarian crisis, says David Baluarte, a law professor at Washington and Lee University and the director of the Immigrant Rights Clinic.

When they're released from detention, they exist in a perpetual state of "immigration parole," Baluarte says.
"We could be talking about a situation that affects tens of thousands and even hundreds of thousands," says Baluarte.
He points to an example not far from US soil. The highest court in the Dominican Republic, a country that traditionally had a robust system of birthright citizenship, recently reinterpreted the constitution to retroactively deny citizenship to the children of undocumented immigrants. The result? Nationality has been stripped from more than 200,000 people of Haitian descent. On top of that, Haiti's system of birth records was decimated in the 2010 earthquake, "so they can't prove their lineage to Haiti either," says Baluarte.
Baluarte warns that ending birthright citizenship would be a disaster. If the children of migrants were not granted citizenship in the United States, the problem of statelessness "could spiral out of control," he says.
