There is no determination for illegals!
They are deported right away.
Canadians have an identification card which denotes they are citizens.
Any illegal caught without it, is automatically deported.
They are not allowed back in the country without a citizenship card.
That is the legal way of doing it.
There are many people from India, Africa and Middle Eastern countries that think they can easily gain entrance into the USA by going through Canada, but a monkey wrench is thrown into their plans once they are caught without a citizenship card.
Wow Jock, you claim you know more about the USA than we do.
Well, I just proved that I know more about Canada than you do.
The American healthcare system is the best in the entire world.
It only became apparent to cry babies that it was supposedly bad.
The gubbermint is expected to pay for everything the freeloaders want, but the morons don't understand. It's not free!
Someone pays for it.
Anthing you get from the government is something that someone paid for.
I'd rather pay for my own things, thank you.
Please, stay in Canada.
See above : "Canadians have an identification card which denotes they are citizens."

If we were born Canadian citizens, we DO NOT HAVE A CITIZENSHIP card or any kind of government-issued I.D. card. But you said "Canadians", no? See above, I just quoted you.

Again, let me explain how it works :

1. There are no Canadian I.D. cards. So, your statement, to wit, "Canadians have an identification card which denotes they are citizens" is incorrect;

2. Canadians, like Americans, NEED proof of birth in country which, except for diplomats, automatically confers Canadian citizenship, to apply for a passport, social security, etc. But they don't carry it around with them, they don't want to lose it, too much red tape to get a new one. And, like the US, the cops canNOT ask your for I.D., any I.D., unless you've broken the law or under suspicion of having done so;

3. An immigrant lands in Canada. He is legal. He is issued a landed immigrant visa card which regulates his status in Canada. He needs it to apply for universal health care, perhaps when applying for a driver's license and to visit another country, paired to his/her passport of country where he/she originates;

4. When landed immigrant, after 3 years' residence, applies and is granted citizenship, he/she is given the certificate (not accepted as proof of citizenship to obtain ppt or documents) AND a citizenship card which is utilized to obtain ppt and other official stuff. As said before, it takes the place of a birth certificate as that person was not born in Canada. That card need not be carried by holder any more than YOU have to carry your birth certificate around . It is NOT an I.D. card and when travelling outside Canada, he/she will use his/her passport, the citizenship card can safely stay at home.

5. Again, I will not name-call you or throw cheap insults around. Do you get it now?

PS : Oh, you also said that your Canadian expert friend figured you would not want our socialized health care system in the U.S. When you see him next, would you mention that survey that says 90% of Canadians approve of their universal health care? Same for over 400 million in Europe. Oops, are they all wrong? Are they all lying?

PPS: LIES. That word is always on the tip of your tongue. When you were growing up, were you often accused of lying? Has that stuck with you? I ask, simply because any thing you hear from your detractors seems to be a lie to you. So much so that I suppose the weatherman never errs when he forecasts the weather incorrectly. I can just hear you : "Damn weatherman, he said it'd be sunny today and it's cloudy. He lied again". Is that how it goes? Someone can at at times be wrong, Sioux, doesn't mean they lied. Like you, you were wrong on this I.D. thing. Did I accuse you of lying? No, you were just wrong, is all. Same for universal health care. Wrong.

STOP NAFTA!

October 1993

Once again, libertarians and conservatives are being played for suckers. And once again, free-market think-tanks and alleged devotees of "free trade" are serving as point-men and front-men for a sinister centrist Establishment whose devotion to freedom and free trade is somewhat akin to Leonid Brezhnev's. The last time that "free market economists" played such a repugnant role was in the 1986 "tax reform," engineered by Jacobin egalitarian economists in the name of "fairness," "equality," and free markets.(Tip: genuine free markets have nothing to do with "equality," and nothing whatever to do with modern leftist notions of "fairness.") The "social compact" devised by the 1986 Republican Jacobins was to cut upper income tax rates in exchange for "closing the loopholes," "broadening the tax base," and thereby keeping everything "revenue neutral." (Query: what's so great about keeping tax revenues up, the eternal aim of supply siders? Why not drastically lower tax rates and tax revenues? Isn't that the real free-market position?)

the 14th is the Civil Rights Act.
You can't be "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof" if you are subject to any foreign power.
Sorry, well known fact, the US Constitution is the jurisdiction,thereof.

Re: "the 14th is the Civil Rights Act."

Answer: NO, it is not.

Re: "You can't be "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof" if you are subject to any foreign power."

Answer. Since everyone who is in the USA except for foreign diplomats is subject to the jurisdiction, people who are foreigners visiting our country and both legal and illegal aliens are just as subject to the jurisdiction as US citizens.

Re: "Sorry, well known fact, the US Constitution is the jurisdiction,thereof."

Answer: Just because you say it does not make it a "well known fact." The fact is that the US Supreme Court RULED (and it is the final authority, not you) that every child born in the USA except for the children of foreign diplomats is a NATURAL BORN US CITIZEN.

Re: At the moment of birth Obama was a citizen of his father' nation, fact."

Answer. Partial fact. At the time of birth Obama was a dual citizen, as were Woodrow Wilson and Dwight D. Eisenhower at the moment of birth. And not only children born in the USA who have dual citizenship Natural Born Citizens, but EVERY child born in the USA except for the children of foreign diplomats are Natural Born Citizens.

Re: "The US government does not have he authority to strip citizenship from anyone, unless they request naturalization, Obama has never requested such. "

Answer: Since he was born in the USA he is a Natural Born Citizen regardless of the fact that he was a dual citizen at one time. That has lapsed, but even if it did not, he would still be a Natural Born US citizen, as would BTW, both Jindal and Rubio.

That is what seven state courts and one federal court have ruled specifically on Obama, and the US Supreme Court turned down the birther appeals of one of those cases, leaving the ruling standing. The appealed case had stated that "every child born in the USA is a Natural Born Citizen." The US Supreme Court turned down the appeal. The lower court ruling STANDS.

This is absolutely incredible, American er hmm Lady. You definitely do not understand ONE single sentence, maybe a few words, that'sit, of what you have just cut and pasted. Don't you even care that people here KNOW you are totally incapable of reading and then comprehending what you foisted on poor captive Topix posters?

Do you even know what "Jacobin" means? The origin of the word? Will you at the very least google it? Can you pronounce it? It's French. Ohhhhh, must be a bad word if it's French, probably a kind of unholy sexual conotation.

I have heard this from several different angles to include Fox News. I have never heard of Obama take responsible for anything that was a negative so why should he start now? Will Obama finally discover humility? It is hard to teach an old dog new tricks. I guess we will just have to find out this evening.

No such thing as lapsed, he has always been a citizen of his father's country. He has never been a dual-citizen, our constitution does not allow that status. He has never requested naturalization, this would indicate he is an alien.
Aliens have never been subject to the jurisdiction of the US Constitution, this would put them on the same footing as a citizen, and we all know they are not.
So, you think the 14th isn't the Civil Rights Act, you better read your history again of the 14th.

WORLDWIDE HEAT RECORD TIED IN SEPTEMBER : REPORT

HOTTEST MONTH SINCE 1880

By Deborah Zabarenko

Datelined Washington.

Last month tied for the warmest September in the global modern record, scientists at the U.S. govt's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reported on Monday.

This September tied with the same month in 2005 for the record. The land-and-sea global average temperature was 15.67 Celsius, or 0.67C above the 20th century average. In addition to being hottest since 1880, the month was the 36th consecutive September and 331st consecutive month with a global temperature above the 20th century average. The last time September temperatures were below that average was 1976,and the last time any month was below that average was February 1985, NOAA scientists said in a statement.

Western Canada, Central Russia,Southern Greenland, Japan, western Australia, northern Argentina and Paraguay had higher-than-normal temperatures in September, while eastern Russia, western Alaska, southern Africa, much of China and parts of the Upper Midwest and Southeast U.S. were notably below average.

"The irony of this is that we (in the U.S.) finally did get a little relief from breaking and threatening heat records for months," said Deke Arndt, chief of climate monitoring at NOAA's National Climatic Date Center. "The thing is, the U.S. takes up about two per cent of the globe," he said.

"The Arctic is plumbing new depths, completely leaving the rest of the record behind...there kind of aren't enough superlatives to describe what has gone on there over the last five or six years."

Conditions in the Arctic are important, since the Arctic is sometimes called the "Earth's air conditioner" for its ability to influence weather around the globe. Reuters.

Well, I can't discuss world weather trends, not qualified. But I can read.
