On Birthright Citizenship

RichTAkes! on Birthright Citizenship

I’ve posted frequently on illegal aliens, the daily alien invasion and natural born citizens for years. Especially since Obama’s natural born status was a hot topic of debate. Earlier today, news broke that Trump was asked a direct question for an HBO special by Axios, and Trump being Trump, answered it directly. 

He flatly stated that he was advised that he could end birthright citizenship outright by means of an Executive Order. That would not be my first choice, but I agree that this policy, which just seems to have evolved willy-nilly needs to end. Critics claim that a Constitutional Amendment would be required, and I agree that it would be a good proposal for the Convention of States. I disagree with the critic’s claims, Trump would not be changing the Constitution, he would be enforcing it.

Imagine for a moment that you come home from work and find a couple who have no legal basis, or jurisdiction for being here have birthed a child in your bedroom, and when you open the door they present you with their child and say congratulations, you are now a proud daddy (or mommy) of our lovely baby girl. That is exactly what birthright citizenship is.

Welcome to Rich Takes!

Harry Reid has an opinion on birthright citizenship in 1993. He must have been sane at one time.

The 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments are the slave amendments. The 13th abolished slavery. The 14th addressed certain laws in the south which restricted former slaves rights, which it intended to correct. Sadly, it did not envision illegal aliens, persons present on our soil without our consent, whose very presence violates our law from bestowing citizenship upon their offspring. We did that to ourselves, and the 14th neither prescribes nor condones birthright citizenship for those without a legal presence.

Amendment XIV

Section 1.

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject 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.<<

Section 2 raised some interesting points. The first deals with the Census (without specifically mentioning the census) and Representation. It says “counting whole persons residing in each state, excluding Indians not taxed”. First, the Indians not taxed means that they weren’t to be counted for purposes of representation, since they were considered citizens of their respective Indian Nations, and thus, not “subject to the jurisdiction thereof”. 

Second, we have states today who benefit from representation not meant, in other words, by counting illegal aliens for purposes of the census and representation. Illegal aliens in California alone account for as many as 8 seats in the House of Representatives that they don’t deserve.

Section 2.

Representatives shall be apportioned among the several states according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each state, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial officers of a state, or the members of the legislature thereof, …

The Undocumented TAkes!

None of the pollsters, consultants and other political pros seem to know what is happening with the rise of Trump, while it is all very simple, really.

We’re all really, really pissed-off! 


Trump offered his immigration plan with the help of Senator Jeff Sessions, with whom I agree with at least 98% of the time.

Here are some of the bullet-points:

Build a fence. Secure the border. I really don’t care who pays for it.

End birth-right citizenship. The 14th Amendment actually states the exact opposite of our current policy.

Defund the so-called sanctuary cities. They are also lawless.

Enact mandatory E-Verify. At the moment, it’s voluntary, even though most businesses will not willing hire a known illegal alien.

Here is my biggest gripe, there is no such thing as an “undocumented” illegal alien. I’m pretty sure that they all have documents, they just aren’t American documents.

To those who claim that a person can not be illegal, if an alien is present in the US without legal sanction, you *are* an illegal alien subject to deportation.

It is time to end the invasion, and our current administration has been doing everything they can to encourage the invasion.

I was shocked to hear many pundits claim that the 14th would need to be repealed to end birth-right citizenship. I might suggest that these pundits haven’t actually read the 14th Amendment. It states the exact opposite. 14th Amendment

If aliens have a child in the US, the parents are subject to the jurisdiction of their native country for everything beyond our criminal code. The 14th makes it clear that their offspring do not automatically enjoy US citizenship solely due to the location of their birth, their parents had no legal jurisdiction at the time.   Continue reading The Undocumented TAkes!
