THE FOURTEENTH AMENDMENT

The 14th Amendment was writ in 1866 to grant citizenship to the slaves and their children freed by President Abraham Lincoln (IL-R) with the Emancipation Proclamation. It was NOT writ for illegal alien “anchor babies!”

The “Original Intent” of the 14th Amendment!  Post-Civil War reforms focused on injustices to Americans freed slaves.   The 14th Amendment was ratified in 1868 to protect the rights of native-born Black Americans, whose rights were being denied as recently-freed slaves…mainly during Reconstruction in the south.

It was writ in a manner so as to prevent state governments from ever denying citizenship to black American slave children born in the United States. But in 1868, the United States had no formal immigration policy, and the authors therefore saw no need to address immigration explicitly in the amendment.

In 1866, Senator Jacob Howard clearly spelled out the intent of the 14th Amendment by stating: "Every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States.

This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”

“The phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" was intended to exclude American-born persons from automatic citizenship whose allegiance to the United States was not complete.

Illegal aliens who are unlawfully in the United States, their native country [e.g. Mexico] has a claim of allegiance of the child. Thus, the completeness of their allegiance to the United States is impaired, which therefore precludes automatic citizenship.”

The illegal alien female invasion of America to produce “Anchor Babies” is ipso facto…illegal.

It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. “This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country."  Please see Emmerich de Vattel – International Law of Nations.

Supreme Court Decisions: The correct interpretation of the 14th Amendment is that an illegal alien mother is subject to the jurisdiction of her native country, as is her baby.”

Over a century ago, the Supreme Court appropriately confirmed this restricted interpretation of citizenship in the so-called "Slaughter-House cases" [83 US 36 (1873) and 112 US 94 (1884)]13.
