Wrong again, skippy.

If aliens are not subject to the Constitution then that means that aliens are not protected by the civil rights contained in the Constitution. In other words, aliens have no right to trial by jury, no freedom of speech, no protection from unreasonable search and seizures, no protection against double jeopardy and no right to a speedy and public trial.

Moreover, these aliens do not come under the 14th Amendment's equal protection clause.

However, your faulty premise has no legal foundation since courts have established that citizens and aliens have the same constitution rights. "The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution is not confined to the protection of citizens. It says: "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." These provisions are universal in their application, to all persons within the territorial jurisdiction, without regard to any differences of race, of color, or of nationality; and the equal protection of the laws is a pledge of the protection of equal laws" Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356, 369 (1886)

Furthermore, "Alien inhabitants of a State, as well as all other persons within its jurisdiction, may invoke the protection of these clauses [14th Amendment]." Terrace v. Thompson, 263 U.S. 197, 216 (1923)

Justice Stevens wrote "There are literally millions of aliens within the jurisdiction of the United States. The Fifth Amendment, as well as the Fourteenth Amendment, protects every one of these persons from deprivation of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. Wong Yang Sung v. McGrath, 339 U. S. 33, 48-51; Wong Wing v. United States, 163 U. S. 228, 238; see Russian Fleet v. United States, 282 U. S. 481, 489. Even one whose presence in this country is unlawful, involuntary, or transitory is entitled to that constitutional protection. Wong Yang Sung, supra; Wong Wing, supra.

The fact that all persons, aliens and citizens alike, are protected by the Due Process Clause does not lead to the further conclusion that all aliens are entitled to enjoy all the advantages of citizenship or, indeed, to the conclusion that all aliens must be placed in a single homogeneous legal classification. For a host of constitutional and statutory provisions rest on the premise that a legitimate distinction between citizens and aliens may justify attributes and benefits for one class not accorded to the other; and the class of aliens is itself a heterogeneous multitude of persons with a wide-ranging variety of ties to this country. Mathews v. Diaz, 426 U.S. 67, 77-78 (1976)

As such, your folderol claim that aliens are not subject to the constitution doesn't hold water in light of Supreme Court decisions that hold the contrary position.

Just because aliens have no political rights (i.e. vote, hold public office) doesn't mean that they don't have constitutional rights to protection their life, liberty and property.

Repeating Play Law over and over doesn't turn fantasy into reality.

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 ...."

Grow up.

Citizens and aliens (i.e., persons, DUH!) in this country are subject to the jurisdiction of the US under the Constitution. That has been true since day 1.

What part?

The part written in invisible ink that says ordinary aliens in the US are subject to a foreign power.

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.

Half-baked Play Law belongs in the children's play room. Frivolous.

Treaties, a frivolous and infantile red herring.

Those persons who are subject to federal, local, and state statutes in this country are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, with or without treaties.

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.
