Ban on birth certificates for illegal immigrants?

The Arizona Hospital and Healthcare Association says it’s troubled by a proposed ballot initiative that would prevent birth certificates from being issued to children of illegal immigrants.

The association says it’s still studying the newly filed proposal but that it appears it would place hospital personnel in a law enforcement role. That might erode the trust between providers and patients.

The “Birthright Citizenship Alignment Act” proposed for the state’s November 2008 ballot would require hospitals to check the citizenship of parents of newborns.

Some critics of illegal immigration contend that the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment has been misapplied and was never intended to automatically grant citizenship to babies of illegal immigrants.
