LMAO!!! That is correct, they were citizens/members of another nation/country, not subject to the jurisdiction, thereof. Obama wasn't "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof", since he was born a citizen of his father's country.<quoted text>
At the time of the drafting of the 14th Amendment, there were those who were born in the United States who were not citizens of the United States.
There were called Indians.
Read Elk v. Wilkins, 112 U.S. 94 (1884)
"Nor can it be doubted that it is the inherent right of every independent nation to determine for itself, and according to its own constitution and laws, what classes of persons shall be entitled to its citizenship." (Ark v. US, para 34)
