In 1889, the Wong Kim Ark Supreme Court case10,11 once again, in a ruling based strictly on the 14th Amendment, concluded that the status of the
parents was crucial in determining the citizenship of the child. The current misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment is based in part upon the
presumption that the Wong Kim Ark ruling encompassed illegal aliens. In fact, it did not address the children of illegal aliens and non-immigrant
aliens, but rather determined an allegiance for legal immigrant parents based on the meaning of the word domicil(e). Since it is inconceivable that
illegal alien parents could have a legal domicile in the United States, the ruling clearly did not extend birthright citizenship to children of
illegal alien parents. Indeed, the ruling strengthened the original intent of the 14th Amendment.
The Court essentially stated that the status of the parents determines the citizenship of the child. To qualify children for birthright
citizenship, based on the 14th Amendment, parents must owe "direct and immediate allegiance" to the U.S. and be "completely subject" to its
jurisdiction. In other words, they must be United States citizens.
BS - these 2 sections fail to address each other - in the top one it says that illegal aliens cannot be born citizens (which I do not know about), in
the 2nd it says that only children of citizens can be born citizens - neither of them mentions legal immigrants.
Fortunately the Supreme Court did - it quite specifically stated that anyone born in the US to parents who are legal residents are born US citizens -
I suggest you go read the case - Wong Kim Ark
- read the actual
case decision, not some deluded nutcase's fantasy about it!
As for the subject of s "completely subject" to the jurisdiction - legal residents are completely subject to the laws of the USA because they have to
follow the laws of the land.
The only people who are not completely subject to the jurisdiction of the USA are diplomats and their families, who have diplomatic immunity.
Your site is a lie - what a waste of 45 seconds of my life having to rebut such utter stupidity!!
