The Court affirmed Vatell's Law of Nations as a part of US Domestic law on page 37. [SCOTUS opinion linked below image]

"For two centuries we have affirmed that the domestic law of the United States recognizes the law of nations." Justice Souter

They sourced the translated edition of Chitty.

"eE. de Vattel, The Law of Nations, Preliminaries §3 (J. Chitty et al. transl. and ed. 1883"

Lets have a look at the Chitty translated edition and see what it says about citizen parents and natural born citizens and the Opinion by Justice Souter..

This is the Smoking Gun.

So maybe I'm dense here ... is he advocating that we basically disallow illegal immigrants the right to have anchor babies?

Awesome, if that's the case! I'm all for that. They're like leeches on our society.

No - It means Obama ain't the president.

Every law he signed is void ab initio.

Are the Roe vs Wade Justices retired? Souter was writing for the opinion of the court. In the opinion he said Vattel's Law of Nations is domestic law.

This means..Obama is illegal based on domestic law.

The list of Justices who concurred are in the link.

No, what it means is that to be a natural born American citizen, one must have had two American citizen parents at birth.

don't have time to go threw the whole opinion but the one thing that strikes me in your quote is the fact that "law of nations" isn't capitalized. if the justice was referencing the book specifically it would be.

"E. de Vattel, The Law of Nations, Preliminaries §3 (J. Chitty et al. transl. and ed. 1883) (hereinafter Vattel)”

The part in quotation marks IS capitalized in the opinion. And Vattel is mentioned by name in the decision six times.
