What? No. You're good at imagining things, I'll grant.

8 U.S. Code § 1101 says this:
"(22) The term “national of the United States” means (A) a citizen of the United States, or (B) a person who, though not a citizen of the United States, owes permanent allegiance to the United States"

It does not say this:
"(22) The term “national of the United States” means (A) a citizen of the United States, except when citizenship is from 8 US Code § 1405, or (B) a person who, though not a citizen of the United States, owes permanent allegiance to the United States"




8 US Code Section 1405 is not the only exception. There is also 8 US Code Section 1404.

All the other sections of code expressly confer nationality at birth or it can be implied by the requirement they be "subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S" and the kind of U.S. Citizen described and protected under the 14th Amendment.

If it's neither expressed nor implied in Section 1405, and because the Statehood Act expressly states that nothing in the Act shall not operate to confer U.S. nationality, then 8 US Code Section 1405 cannot be presumed to confer U.S. nationality at birth.

The terms 'citizen' and 'national' are treated separately and uniquely throughout the INA. There is nothing to suggest that they are treated interchangeably in Section 1405.
