Col. Nelson, I believe the following covers citizenship at birth. I've emphasized the categories.
U.S. Code Title 8, Chapt 12, Subchapter III, Part I, § 1401- Nationals and citizens of United States at birth
The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth:
(a) a person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof;
(b) a person born in the United States to a member of an Indian, Eskimo, Aleutian, or other aboriginal tribe: Provided, That the granting of citizenship under this subsection shall not in any manner impair or otherwise affect the right of such person to tribal or other property;
(c) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents both of whom are citizens of the United States and one of whom has had a residence in the United States or one of its outlying possessions, prior to the birth of such person;
(d) a person born outside of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year prior to the birth of such person, and the other of whom is a national, but not a citizen of the United States;
(e) a person born in an outlying possession of the United States of parents one of whom is a citizen of the United States who has been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year at any time prior to the birth of such person;
(f) a person of unknown parentage found in the United States while under the age of five years, until shown, prior to his attaining the age of twenty-one years, not to have been born in the United States;
(g) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided, That any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States, or periods of employment with the United States Government or with an international organization as that term is defined in section 288 of title 22 by such citizen parent, or any periods during which such citizen parent is physically present abroad as the dependent unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person (A) honorably serving with the Armed Forces of the United States, or (B) employed by the United States Government or an international organization as defined in section 288 of title 22, may be included in order to satisfy the physical-presence requirement of this paragraph. This proviso shall be applicable to persons born on or after December 24, 1952, to the same extent as if it had become effective in its present form on that date; and
(h) a person born before noon (Eastern Standard Time) May 24, 1934, outside the limits and jurisdiction of the United States of an alien father and a mother who is a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, had resided in the United States.
Part (a) is what I believe gives rise to so much disagreement. Some hold that the 14th Amendment says all born in the US are under US jurisdiction. That's the CURRENT interpretation that allows ANCHOR BABIES. BUT, is that what the writers of the 14th Amendment intended. I think you and I would say no and that anchor baby citizenship shouldn't be allowed.
I also believe a war is coming and we conservatives must be prepared to defend the Republic. So I tell those who love the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Republic to keep their powder dry. But anyone who wants a civil war isn't an American patriot or a person of faith. So what groups of people do you want to kill?
I take it with your willingness to curse all the royalty of England that you aren't a believer in the Bible either. Furthermore, despite the insidious inroads of Islam in England and much of Europe, how is England an Islamic nation? No doubt the Muslims want it and other nations overrunning with Muslim immigrants to accept dhimmitude.
However, did I challenge Tif's right to say anything? Or are you saying I haven't the right to question, challenge, or disagree with what she or you say? Considering your conspiracy theories, do you really believe in the Constitution? After all, you and Tif seem to think our Revolutionary War was ordered by the King of England. I guess that's why you proudly call yourself a conspiracist.
Col. Nelson was never institutionalized in any psychiatric hospital by the military as far as I know. What were you institutionalized for, disobedience or mental health problems? ;-)
By the way, it's Tif who's bouncing around different forums. Col. Nelson and I were just responding. Is that offensive to you?
No, I didn't bail on anything. And of course you'd love to see her kick the backside of a septuagenarian disabled veteran just out of 6 weeks in a VA hospital and rehab center. It'd be real brave of both of you. So laugh like a hyena, but all you prove is what a puerile caitiff you are.
Purile Caitiff... now, that is a good one. I'll have to remember that phrase, as many of the younger generation today seem to embued with the very essence of the purile caitiff ....
Remember, no violence as much as we might be tempted, except of course in self defense, defense of our families, defense of our friends and community, AND defense of the Republic. I see that as not only a political mandate but also as a religious mandate.
I'm a retired military office like Col. Nelson. I'm also disabled as I mentioned and just got out of rehab after 6 weeks. Still, I wish we'd be less involved in so many conflicts. Of course I like Teddy Roosevelt's quote, "The pacifist is as surely a traitor to his country and to humanity as is the most brutal wrongdoer."
Now I believe the caravans shouldn't be permitted into the US. Most are seeking economic asylum, not political asylum. As a sovereign nation we have the right to decide who comes here, when, for how long, why, and with what skills. The first duty of our federal government is to protect our borders. Its second duty is to protect the rights of citizens.
So if force is needed, so be it. But it should be avoided if at all possible. Also, any force must be legitimate, not a bunch of vigilantes running around. Only deputized civilians should help police, border agents, and the military. In addition, the military is constrained by the posse comitatus laws.
So this old military curmudgeon is praying that illegal immigration is stopped without force.
PS; what memos are you referring to?
The Birthright Citizenship- pdfs are posted, if you have time, will you please point out which one is or may be used to change the Immigration Laws.
Tif, your file is ready,
Make the information a directive. Leave out other then, short mirror comment, to the argument.
MRS. Morgan, it seems you like to laugh a lot. Is it you're really not being serious about the Declaration.
By the way, you haven't answered my question of why do you think the Tyndale translation was the first version of the Bible. Is it that you can't or are afraid to?
MRS. Morgan, I look to the Giver of Life, Jesus Christ.
MRS. MORGAN, yes, I'm a conservative constitutionalist in the mold of a 17th to 19th CLASSICAL Liberal. I doubt you comprehend that. You might even think it's a Democratic Socialist Communist. In reality it's a conservative with a hint of libertarianism.
As for my comprehension of the English language, I use the standard American vernacular I learned in school and in the military. It didn't include Hillbilly slang, although I had a Southern Belle wife; my better half. :-)
As for salutations, Mrs. Morgan is just fine as long as you use Major, Sir or Maj. Benitez. ;-)
The correct spelling is PUERILE caitiff, sorry for the typo. Am still recovering for my fun time at rehab. So what did you learn?
MRS. Morgan, why would I try to adjust the attitude of an opinionated bitch? I'll leave that to Jesus Christ.
