Not according to supreme court decisions for the past 200 years.

"The concept of dual citizenship recognizes that a person may have and exercise rights of nationality in two countries and be subject to the responsibilities of both" Kawakita v. United States, 343 U.S. 717, 727 (1951)

"As municipal law determines how citizenship may be acquired, it follows that persons may have a dual nationality. And the mere fact that the plaintiff may have acquired Swedish citizenship by virtue of the operation of Swedish law, on the resumption of that citizenship by her parents, does not compel the conclusion that she has lost her own citizenship acquired under our law."

Everyone knows all laws of the US must be in accord with the Constitution, and that the United States, as a SOVEREIGN NATION, is entitled to govern the conduct of aliens within its jurisdiction. US law since the First Congress required aliens to be subject to the jurisdiction (under the jurisdiction) of the United States prior to being naturalized in the United States.
Naturalization Act of 1790:
"Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That any Alien being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the JURISDICTION of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof on application to any common law Court of record in any one of the States wherein he shall have resided for the term of one year at least ...."

under the jurisdiction is not the same as being "subject to the jurisdiction of the Constitution", this is a right that only a citizen enjoys.

The Constitution is applicable to everyone who is within the jurisdiction of the United States. Citizens and aliens are within the jurisdiction of the United States. If it is your contention that aliens HAVE NO LEGAL RIGHTS under the Constitution then it means that there are millions of people in the United States that have no rights that are protected by the Constitution.

That is inane.

They are subject to the sovereign rule, under the Constitution and other laws of the United States of America, i.e., subject to the jurisdiction thereof, and under the protection thereof and owing local allegiance thereto, while in this country.

"nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;"

Needless to say, "any person" obviously includes aliens.

However, the 14th Amendment does not say "subject to the US Constitution." It simply says "subject to the jurisdiction thereof." And the "thereof" refers to the United States, the country. And the meaning of "jurisdiction" has been defined by the US Supreme Court as subject to the laws.
All people who are in the USA are subject to the laws of the USA except for foreign diplomats and their families.

"may be admitted to become a citizen thereof", if this is accomplished then he will be "Subject to the jurisdiction" of the US Constitution.

no it is not, you stated it yourself, aliens haven't any political rights.
Aliens are here under treaties and are under local, state and Fed statutes, but never bound to the Constitution, as in "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof".

Infantile and frivolous.

Subject to the jurisdiction of the United States means exactly the same as under the jurisdiction of the United States. By changing the statement to "subject to the jurisdiction of the Constitution" Play Justice Dale cannot negate the meaning of subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. It is what it is.

Ordinary aliens in this country are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States of America, and as such are governed by the sovereign rule of this nation, we the people. They are also under the protection of the United States, including protections stated in the Constitution, and reciprocally owe local allegiance to the United States while here.

Play Law simply doesn't count outside the play pen.

only by treaty, aliens have never been subject to the jurisdiction, thereof. For this to happen they must be naturalized, IAW The Naturalization Act.

Infantile claptrap.

"nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law;"

The 14th amendment is not a treaty and is not superseded by any treaty. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land.

Get over it. President Obama is the President of the United States and no amount of sand box Play Law can change that FACT OF LIFE.

Grow up. Put your robe, gavel, and other toys away and become a man.
