So does Dufus Dale now flip-flop and conclude that the 14th Amendment would have made persons born in the US of European immigrants not citizens even though they had been previously considered citizens before passage of the amendment?<quoted text>LMAO!!! Here, explain this.
This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are (((foreigners, aliens))), who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.
Just how are foreigners and aliens born in the US that aren't not members of ambassadors/ministers families.
All you have to do is look at Obama, he was born a citizen of his father's country of origin, since his father was an alien with no intentions of making the US his naturalized country.
BTW, if Dufus Dale had a reading comprehension ability over grade 2 he would realize that his quote refers to children of ambassadors as born aliens, and not children of ordinary aliens. Every court that has ever ruled on the issue understands English. Poor Dufus Dale does not.
Sorry I forgot to include the citation.
"To hold that the fourteenth amendment of the constitution excludes from citizenship the children born in the United States of citizens or subjects of other countries, would be to deny citizenship to thousands of persons of English, Scotch, Irish, German, or other European parentage, who have always been considered and treated as citizens of the United States." US v Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 694 (1898).
