U.S. Citizenship

Phyllis Schaffly:

Birth on U.S. territory has never been an absolute claim to citizenship. The 14th Amendment does not automatically extend this to children born to alien parents at war with the United States, the children of diplomatic agents, American Indians or illegal aliens...

It's not the physical location of birth that defines citizenship, but whether your parents are citizens, and the express or implied consent to jurisdiction of the sovereign.
