A big advantage of Jus Soli is for children and young adults born in the United States to illegal immigrants. These immigrants who have come to the United States have citizenship in a different country, often Mexico. If they have children, and these children grow up in the American culture, speaking English, it will be difficult for them to adjust if they are not allowed U.S. citizenship automatically. For example, what if a couple from Germany somehow got into the U.S. and started a family, speaking English? They have children, but are discovered to be illegal immigrants. They are punished, because they do not have Green Cards. But the U.S. cannot punish the children, or send them back to Germany because they have automatic citizenship in the U.S. Imagine being fourteen years old and being sent to a country where you cannot even speak the same language as everyone else. Having grown up in a different culture, you would not adjust very well, and might even illegally return to North America, creating more problems.
