Birthright Citizenship and the Constitution

"The child of an alien, if born in the country, is as much a citizen as the natural born child of a citizen, and by operation of the same principle. "The key here, MichaelIN, is that the "principle" involved is what you are missing. What principle is being invoked? Work on that and you have the answ...

I posted this to a private political mailing list I belong to the other day: Honestly. "Home country" is how they think of the larger family's place of origin, much like Eastern Europeans used to say in the twentieth century "in the old country." Same thing. Look, most of those nutcases actually bel...

Liberi v. Taitz, et al.

Lisa Liberi and Lisa Ostella are not the same person. Are they? It's been awhile.Up until now, they were thought to be two separate people, my memory tells me. The question raging had been whether Lisa Liberi lived in Phila. or New Mexico. If there's in fact only ONE Lisa, that's pretty funny; it wo...

What Are the Chances of SCOTUS Overturning Wong Kim Ark?

If Congess passed a bill outlawing children of illegal immigrants from being citizens, it seems to me that it would be very unlikely that the court would address Wong Kim Ark. The court generally does not address issues it does not have too. Wong Kim Ark limited its holding to the facts of the case,...

What Are the Chances of SCOTUS Overturning Wong Kim Ark?

I hope this isn't three-for-three... but everything I've read about the issue has left me with the impression that an adequate level of funding of the agencies responsible for enforcement isn't being made by Congress and that's the reason for "lax" enforcement. But is it corruption? Is business payi...

But Wong's parents weren't illegal immigrants. So a federal statute could be passed that made the children of illegal aliens something other than NBC, couldn't it?

Donofrio, Pidgeon to Collaborate on Quo Warranto, Chrysler

Leo Donofrio is likely a schizophrenic. He's a high-functioning severely mentally ill person who is managing to avoid (due to positive personal qualities that he possesses) being one of the unfortunate ones who have been discussed on another thread as worthy of compassion, not ridicule.

Hm. That's strange. When I first got to the thread I went to the last page and didn't see anything. Sorry for the redundancy. I'd delete it, but it's too late to do that. I'll do something, though.

THE WORD "NATURAL"

Sure, it does. If "naturalization" makes you a citizen, then one who is already a citizen must be "natural." And if one didn't need naturalization, one was born in the U.S. And therefore one who does not need naturalization to become a citizen is a "natural born citizen" by virtue of being born in ...

THE WORD "NATURAL"

Under the Articles of Confederation, each state retained authority over the naturalization of aliens. This resulted in widely varying state practices, which James Madison in The Federalist No. 42 called a “fault” and “defect” of the Confederation. At the Constitutional Convention, there was virtual...

Thanks, y'all, for defending me. Stern initially got pyst at me months ago when I said something that probably was a bit over the top -- I can't recall what it was.
