LMAO!!! You posted all of this crap yesterday, go back and read my replies!!!<quoted text>
Sorry, Dufus, but the USSC in 1812 made it perfectly clear that US jurisdiction within its own territories is exclusive and absolute, not depending upon treaties or anything not imposed by the nation itself.
So the claim that the Preamble limits US jurisdiction to citizens only, goes up in Play Law pipe smoke.
The 14th amendment uses the term, "jurisdiction" in the same sense as understood according to the Act March 26, 1790, without redefinition. So you are pissing in the wind.
“In short, the judgment in the case of The Exchange declared, as incontrovertible principles, that the jurisdiction of every nation within its own territory is exclusive and absolute, and is susceptible of no limitation not imposed by the nation itself;”
United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 686 (1898)
“From the first organization of the national government under the constitution, the naturalization acts of the United States, in providing for the admission of aliens to citizenship by judicial proceedings, uniformly required every applicant to have resided for a certain time ‘within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States,’ and thus applied the words ‘under the jurisdiction of the United States' to aliens residing here before they had taken an oath to support the constitution of the United States, or had renounced allegiance to a foreign government. Acts March 26, 1790, c. 3 (1 Stat. 103); January 29, 1795, c. 20,§ 1 (1 Stat. 414); June 18, 1798, c. 54,§§ 1, 6 (1 Stat. 566, 568); April 14, 1802, c. 28,§ 1 (2 Stat. 153); March 22, 1816, c. 32,§ 1 (3 Stat. 258); May 24, 1828, c. 116,§ 2 (4 Stat. 310); Rev. St.§ 2165. And, from 1795, the provisions of those acts, which granted citizenship to foreign-born children of American parents, described such children as ‘born out of the limits and jurisdiction of the United States.’ Acts Jan. 29, 1795, c. 20,§ 3 (1 Stat. 415); April 14, 1802, c. 28,§ 4 (2 Stat. 155); February 10, 1855, c. 71 (10 Stat. 604); Rev. St.§§ 1993, 2172. Thus congress, when dealing with the question of citizenship in that aspect, treated aliens residing in this country as ‘under the jurisdiction of the United States,’ and American parents residing abroad as ‘out of the jurisdiction of the United States.’” United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 686-687 (1898)
