My concern is that we don't let people who broke this law line-jump ahead of those who follow the law, or give them an exemption from standards applied to would-be illegal immigrants.

Now you are talking about needing to remove the US citizenship part of the 14th Amendment--because that *is* the way illegal aliens "jump the line" and become able to stay in the US. It would have to replaced with a different set of requirements based on *legal* residence in the US--and would have to specifically exclude "temporary" residents (such as women from Mexico coming to US hospitals to have their babies).

Redefine how citizenship can be required and that changes the game entirely because then they can NOT come to the US and "make Americans" of their very own--when *they* wish. This change has already happened in many other countries for exactly that reason.
