This law has been the basis for the issuance of passports as well as granting benefits and entitlements to anyone born on USA soil. You may claim that this was never the intent of the 14th Amendment, but the fact remains that until the law is changed, we will continue to grant citizenship based on jus solis. The Courts will eventually make that determination. Trump's possible Executive Order will force the Courts to make that determination. Depending on the outcome, we will learn whether a Constitutional amendment is needed or not. Or will an EO or law passed by Congress be sufficient.
You’re still not getting it at all. There is no law granting citizenship to children born to illegal aliens. Nor to legal foreign nationals for that matter.
I don’t care if there’s been a ‘consensus’ of what the law may mean. Some subjective interpretation. It doesn’t work that way and it never should. This sh!t was conjured out of thin air.
It’s been a complete lawless free for all for 30 some odd years. Someone needs to go to prison for this. Better yet, someone needs to hang from a lamppost.
“If you truly want to understand birthright citizenship”
I obviously understand it a lot better than you do. You’ve had these same moronic talking points for years
I’m curious, when did congress write, pass and send that “law” 1401 to a president for signing.
There is a difference between law and regulation. What is the underlying legislation for this code?
