LMAO!!! Not one person that was a citizen of a state lost their citizenship with the ratification of the 14th amendment, but all persons who are born in the US of alien fathers acquire the the citizenship of their father's country of origin, this is a fact you can't dispute.<quoted text>
Insane. No one could have lost their citizenship due to passage of the 14th Amendment prior to the 14th Amendment?
Nonsense: "prior to 1866 ... no one lost their citizenship with the change of power ..."
Dufus Dale does not understand that the 14th Amendment SUPERSEDED previous law and if a person had been born in the US but beyond the jurisdiction of the US that person would not be a citizen, even if that person would have been considered a US citizen by a state prior to passage of the 14th Amendment"
"[F]or, if the contention of counsel for the government be correct, it will inevitably result that thousands of persons of both sexes who have been heretofore considered as citizens of the United States, and have always been treated as such, will be, to all intents and purposes, denationalized and remanded to a state of alienage.
In re Wong Kim Ark, 71 Fed. Rep. 382 (N.D. Cal. 1896).
"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."
Sorry Dufus Dale, Play Law does not count.
The US Constitution has never recognized a dual-citizenship status.
