The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states:
“The 14th Amendment, adopted after the Civil War, states: “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.” It could not be clearer.”
Here is what I would love to know…after Paris, San Bernardino, so many other places and now Brussels, who is this character stating “It could not be clearer.” I have studied the XIV Amendment with legal scholars assuredly asking them about the phrase “and subject to the jurisdiction thereof” that I am positive that this is a hangnail way of easing illegal’s into the process of having a US citizen new born child and for the rest of the family to enjoy the entitlements of money per month, food stamps, housing accommodations, medical care, for nothing.
I have even read the private communications between the writer of this amendment and his colleagues during the actual time it happened, according to the dates on the writing’s.
This much prior to Justice Brenner in the late 1980s and his sticking a note in the Opinion before filing it away states, or petrel this is what they meant: and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, meant precisely that if anyone in the family was an American flag waving, living within the confines of the USA; moreover, and this one is important, being subject to the jurisdiction thereof, as written by the writer meant that all allegiance from that person was for the USA and laws, policies, and moral standards to the US Constitution and none other for any nation — including being drafted into the Armed Services, or drafted into a war, whilst giving all of one’s steadfast devotion to and for the USA alone that included the jurisdiction portion.
Moreover, being the “subject” to the jurisdiction of wherever one is while in the USA (any state or jail or prison) meant the jurisdiction.
Now for my finale — I have surveyed and polled hundreds of illegal’s within our nation and asked them politely and most cordially are they ready to relinquish their association with the country they call “my country” and give their allegiance over to the United States, in every case the answer was “No.”
