Right after all those things are finished. Which they are.


(Cute how you referenced "buying Denmark". You are the only person in America who even bothers to pretend that was intended.)
Wasn't it Greenland he wanted to buy? Nobody wants Denmark obviously

Tel-Aviv is still the capital of Israhell last I checked, regardless of where the US decides to put it's embassy.

Doesn't matter. Plyer vs. Doe (1982) has reaffirmed that native born citizens are entitled to US citizenship regardless of the status of their parents.

That's not what that decision was about. It was about equal protection clause, not citizenship clause. It was a BS decision that illegal aliens get public education but it did not address citizenship.

WKA never mentioned illegal aliens. SCOTUS ruled only that those born to domiciled (legal) US residents were birthright citizens. Illegal aliens aren't domiciled (legal) residents. Their legal domicile is the country from which they illegally emigrated.

Interesting comment. I'm assuming you're referring to the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924?

That's another example of why we know the 14th Amendment didn't automatically convey birthright citizenship on those who are born in the US to a parent(s) who are citizens/subjects of foreign sovereigns.

Read current US Nationality Law, specifically subsections (a) and (b). If everyone born in the US were actually automatically US citizens, subsection (b) would be redundant and would be neither included nor necessary:

Yep another fantasy idea from our authoritarian king. Tomorrow it'll be "no soup for you" and the next day it'll be "bread line for you"...and the beat goes on.

The Supreme Court has already had rulings on the subject...
https://qz.com/1447349/an-1898-us-su...t-citizenship/
“The right of citizenship… is incident to birth in the country… The child of an alien, if born in the country, is as much a citizen as the natural born child of a citizen, and by operation of the same principle.”

Supreme Court set clear precedent on birthright citizenship.
Birthright citizenship has a long history in the United States, upheld by Supreme Court rulings. 10/31/2018
