Anyone with eight grade reading level should be able to understand that "subject to the jurisdiction" of the United States is a condition precedent to citizenship per the 14th Amendment, as also per naturalization laws, which require persons to be under the jurisdiction of the United States for a prescribed period prior to naturalization.<quoted text>LMAO!!! Aliens have never been, "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof (US Constitution)".(see 14th amendment)
Somehow Dufus Dale believes that appending "(US Constitution)" to the jurisdiction clause reverses the obvious logic. That is a sign of seriously disordered thinking.
Not according to Article 1 Section 8 Clause 4. The authority to establish legislation governing naturalization is vested in Congress which in turn delegated the authority to the Attorney General per 8 USC § 1421 (a).
The 14th Amendment requires aliens to be under the jurisdiction of the United States in order to be naturalized in the United States. While under the jurisdiction of the United States aliens are subject to US law, including naturalization law per Art 1 Sec 8 Cl 4. The amendment and the clause are in perfect harmony.
