<quoted text>
At the time the constitution was written, "We the people" were white property owning males. Over time that meaning has changed.
"Often described as a "living document," the Constitution has repeatedly been interpreted by the U.S. Supreme Court, federal appeals courts and Congress in order to address the ever-changing needs and demands of the people. While many argue that "We the People of the United States," refers only to legal citizens, the Supreme Court has consistently disagreed.
Yick Wo v. Hopkins (1886)
In Yick Wo v. Hopkins, a case involving the rights of Chinese immigrants, the Court ruled that the 14th Amendment's statement, "Nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws," applied to all persons "without regard to any differences of race, of color, or of nationality," and to "an alien, who has entered the country, and has become subject in all respects to its jurisdiction, and a part of its population, although alleged to be illegally here." (Kaoru Yamataya v. Fisher, 189 U.S. 86 (1903))
Wong Wing v. U.S.(1896)
Citing Yick Wo v. Hopkins, the Court, in the case of Wong Wing v. US, further applied the citizenship-blind nature of the Constitution to the 5th and 6th amendments, stating "... it must be concluded that all persons within the territory of the United States are entitled to the protection guaranteed by those amendments, and that even aliens shall not be held to answer for a capital or other infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law."
Plyler v. Doe (1982)
In Plyler v. Doe, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law prohibiting enrollment of illegal aliens in public school. In its decision, the Court held, "The illegal aliens who are plaintiffs in these cases challenging the statute may claim the benefit of the Equal Protection Clause, which provides that no State shall 'deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.' Whatever his status under the immigration laws, an alien is a 'person' in any ordinary sense of that term… The undocumented status of these children vel non does not establish a sufficient rational basis for denying them benefits that the State affords other residents."

You might want to check the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and tell us who can be citizens of the US. Oh, this was the first national law pertaining to citizenship, which the 14th was written from.

Are you nuts? A child born in the United States does not owe allegiance to any other government, but that of the United States. The 14th Amendment, and the doctrine of Jus Solis, control. Even if the child is born in the United States, to a pregnant mother who's a foreign national, and who goes into labor while vacationing in the United States, the child is still a U.S. Citizen, despite that it could also hold dual citizenship.
Justice Dale wrote:
One can't be "and subject to the jurisdiction, thereof", while holding a citizenship of another nation.
The territorial principle affords the United States to claim in personam jurisdiction over any foreign national, within the boundaries of the United States, or the individual state.

If you can find a case or a federal statute to support your position, I'd like to see it.

Who failed Chicago?

Who failed Chicago?
by Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
Copyright 2013

On Tuesday, President Obama and the First Lady used the State of the Union spotlight to pay tribute to an innocent teenage girl shot and killed by Chicago gang thugs. On Friday, Obama will travel to the Windy City to decry violence and crusade for more gun laws in the town with the strictest gun laws and bloodiest gun-related death tolls in America.

Does the White House really want to open up a national conversation about the state of Chicago? Ok, let’s talk.

Obama, his wife, his campaign strategists, his closest cronies, and his biggest bundlers all hail from Chicago. Senior adviser and former Chicago real estate mogul/city planning commissioner Valerie Jarrett and her old boss, Richard Daley, presided over a massive “Plan for Transformation” in the mid-1990s to rescue taxpayer-subsidized public housing from its bloody hellhole. How’d that work out for you, Chicago?

**********
So, let's see...roughly a dollar per hour more depending on where you live (or $40 more per week BEFORE TAXES) "could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank; rent or eviction; scraping by or finally getting ahead?"
anybody else remember the info that came out and said that all welfare bennies combined equaled $10.00 per hour?

why not make the min wage for WORKING citizens be $10.01 p/hr... at least 1 cent MORE than doing NOTHING?

I also found it 'misleading' that the 'smartest Pres EVER' thinks that a family of four (or more) is to be supported by a SINGLE, MIN WAGE EARNER!

if the average voter is NOT being fed a consistent diet of BS and out right LIES, by BOTH maj Parties, why DO they keep voting for the same bullshitters and LIARS?

I was glad to finally see the father of the recently killed innocent girl in Chicago... I was wondering where HE was in the earlier news videos. maybe if this Pres had made fatherly responsibilities a PRIOROTY from Day One, this girl would STILL be alive?

then, again, he MAY not of gotten re-elected... ask Bill Cosby what kind of reaction he got to speaking out on the same subject.

oops! there's that 'conservative' streak showing out, again.:)

or, maybe the Pres was just being RACIST by making that comment?

what say the resident 'race' experts here?

hurry, hurry, hurry...

Oh, bullshit. The Dems want to import millions of illegals, sign them up to vote Democrat and ruin our economy. They don't give a flying crap about anything else. They're a bunch of proto-commies hoping to start a socialist paradise. We'll go straight down the toilet. It won't be heaven on earth, it'll be a dog-eat-dog Hell, just like the most of Latin America.
We are indeed a nation of immigrants. But most of the previous groups arrived here without a dime - and weren't given one by Uncle. The new "immigrants" are nothing more that leeches and ticks, here to latch onto Uncle's foolish give-away programs until they bleed us dry. Others earned their own way. This new group are just parasites, no more welcome than the plague or locust.
Get real. Socialism combined with unlimited immigration is a formula for disaster. You might as well take everything you own and set it out on the street. The mob will be there to take it soon enough anyway. That's Obama's plan for America.
Isn't if funny how you people all react the same way when case law shows how stupid your arguments are!!

Tell you what, Barney, why don't you run for President, get elected and inaugurated, then maybe you can do something about it. Better yet; run for congress and revive the [Turd] Tea Party.

Don't have a coronary while responding to my post ok? I'd hate to think what will happen to your 12 children.

Key phrase: "subject to change". Meaning: justifies all the crazy sh*t the liberals want, ending freedom.
Who would sign ANY contract with a built-in "subject to change at my whim" clause?
"A living thing". BS. That's just lib-talk for "anytime I want, I can vote myself your stuff".
Liberalism is where a mob gets together, decides they want the fruits of somebody else's labor, and they steal it. It doesn't matter if the person who produced it followed all the rules and behaved honestly, because everything is "subject to change".
What do you call someone who labors honestly, but then the fruits of that labor are taken from them by force? A SLAVE!
Obama, a black man, is bringing back slavery to America. How disgusting.

No, that's what it means for you and you've pretty much established yourself as a disgruntled, pessimistic, delusional, anarchist.

"My whim".

Your exaggerations and assumptive leaps are truly tiresome. Nothing is changed on a "whim". Do you understand the concept of a "living document"? I know it's scary for you. I know you don't like "change" but, it is a reality of life that many others just come to terms with and proceed to progress, adapt, and succeed. Try.

No, that's not what "liberalism" is. That's your twisted maniacal view of liberalism and just regular people in general. Libs work, and toil, and produce just like everyone else. It's really boring catering to your ignorance.

Then leave. If that's what you believe and you feel like a "slave". Leave. Pack your chit and be on your way.

LOL, when I was in High School only teenagers worked at drive thrus like McD's. We even had Restaurant training classes in schools. Now it's all but middle aged hispanics. I won't even eat at a Restaurant if teens aren't working behind the counter.
Today's teens are spoiled little brats.
I remember taking ROP classes that trained you at the West Covina Mall in retail sales and part of your high school curriculum was getting your drivers license in General ED class.

No doubt times have changed for me too over the past 20 years since I left high school. My parents neighborhood was 95% white in Covina. Today, my parents are the only white hispanics left in the neighborhood.

So you liked it better when all you seen at the restaurants were pasty & peachy white kids? Maybe it's time to stop looking in your rear view mirror.

As you might already know, I live in East LA and every restaurant & fast food joint has those middle aged Hispanic men. It's the norm here and for a good reason... those are jobs that white folk simply don't do want to do anymore.

Even better here in Mexifornia , you can sit on your ass on welfare as long as you like. As long as you keep dropping out bags of money from your vaginal ATM. And if you really want to screw the system, you can just run a auto repair/dealership right on your front lawn. TAX FREE!

Mitts Grandparents were criminal pedophiles, rapist, sodomizers and cowards who ran away from the civil war & war of 1848 to the enemy combatant county known as Mexico.

Not only that but they made their home and lived there for a generation.

A true American Citizen doesn't cowardly run away from the USA.

That's the legacy of Mitt Romney and you voted for him.
