currant-citizenship-controversy:
Of The Currant Citizenship Controversy

Those proclaiming “Birthright Citizenship” are wrong

On one side we have those proclaiming “Birthright Citizenship” or jus sanguinis as the law of the land here in the United States, an unconditional basis for citizenship as such as anyone born in this territory has citizenship. However, “Birthright Citizenship” is not actually “Birthplace Citizenship” or jus soli and ought not to be confused with jus sanguinis as is this side of the debate. This side also seems to think that the currant controversy is something new but it is not as this controversy was in our Declaration of Independence as we declared our independence from jus soli, perpetual allegiance to the king’s dominion. The Birthright side also takes snippets of history, court opinions that are known to be wrong and conflicting and attempts to change the meaning of words. As for “anchor babies” this side believes the parents do not own the child they had given birth to, but this baby is a government subject owing perpetual allegiance and forever bound to those laws if that child was born on the soil thereof. This is wrong, parents ought to own their children and be subjects thereof. Scissors-32x32.png

Amendment XIV: Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, andsubject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

 

“Anchor babies” and “birth-right citizenship” have been the topic of a great many of our political discussions lately — when we’re not talking about Donald Trump. Though we tend to concentrate on illegal immigration from Latin America — and the ethics and legality of deporting entire families once some of their children have been “born American” — This completely ignores another part of the “birth-right citizenship” phenomenon.
