What makes this so funny and at the same time infuriating is that Mexico does not recognize anchor babies themselves. What right does a foreign government have to interfere in a case involving another country’s sovereignty?

First, let us examine the language of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
