Sorry Bozo, persons born in the US of alien parents are completely subject to US jurisdiction. Elk, who was born within the limits of the US buyt on an Indian reservation was an exception. that has nothing to do with persons born in the US of aliens from foreign countries outside the US.<quoted text>Sorry, but under US law we can't strip a citizenship from anyone, unless requested by that individual, which leads us in another direction (dual-citizenship), which brings us back to the same old thing.
"all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof." The evident meaning of these last words is not merely subject in some respect or degree to the jurisdiction of the United States, but completely subject to their political jurisdiction and owing them direct and immediate allegiance. And the words relate to the time of birth in the one case, as they do to the time of naturalization in the other. Persons not thus subject to the jurisdiction of the United States at the time of birth cannot become so afterwards except by being naturalized, either individually, as by proceedings under the naturalization acts, or collectively, as by the force of a treaty by which foreign territory is acquired.
Grow up, child.
<quoted text>As Madison stated, place (of birth) is the most certain criterion of allegiance: "it is what applies in the United States." That is why a person born in Hawaii of an alien father is not under any "foreign influence" under US law. That is why Ted Cruz has a problem.
