Dear President Trump,
We wish you well as President. Americans want you to succeed. We suggest a few items that should be first and foremost on your agenda. Thank you for considering them, but implementing them will ensure the continuation of your legacy.
- Require all schools receiving Federal Dollars to conduct their lessons in English only. This will accomplish two things. First it will instill patriotism and second it will bring foreigners into a cultural alliance with those who are already English proficient. The end result being cultural simulation.
- Require proof of citizenship to vote in Federal and State elections; proof to be submitted are the following: naturalization papers, birth certificate or United States Passport. For once and for all this will eliminate election fraud and the stealing of elections. Along with this requirement the voter must physically cast a ballot, therefore the election period shall be increased from one day to one week. Absentee ballots will be allowed with valid excuses. For instance being out of the country, permanently disabled, unable to physically get to the voting venue. In a Presidential election the results must be announced in tandem. Allowing early results from Eastern states have the possibility of influencing voters in Western states.
- Require the immediate resignation of all employees of the Department of Education. – no exception allowed. Leave education to the states
- Require the elimination of all subsidies, farm, energy, commercial, automotive and environmental. This will level the playing field expected of competitive markets.
- Require that new members of the administration refrain from nepotism. Immediately cull those relatives of Congressman and Senators from government. Let them get jobs in the private sector and find out how it is to work for a change.
- Require all members of Congress and employees of the Federal Government to pay into Social Security. The result will be the elimination of government pension benefits enriching those who live off the rest of us taxpayers.
- At a minimum one or perhaps two Supreme Court Justices will be appointed by President Trump. Their charge should be to immediately rule on the ANCHOR BABY QUESTION.The Citizenship Clause is the first sentence of Section 1 in the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, which states that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” This clause represented Congress’s reversal of a portion of the Dred Scott v. Sandford decision which had declared that African Americans were not and could not become citizens of the United States or enjoy any of the privileges and immunities of citizenship. PLEASE NOTE THE “subject to the jurisdiction thereof”, this must be adjudicated. An illegal alien is not subject to our jurisdiction when in fact they are citizens of another country. See below in red.
The Civil Rights Act of 1866 had already granted U.S. citizenship to all persons born in the United States “not subject to any foreign power“. The 39th Congress proposed the principle underlying the Citizenship Clause due to concerns expressed about the constitutionality of the Civil Rights Act during floor debates in Congress. The framers of the Fourteenth Amendment sought to entrench the principle in the Constitution in order to prevent its being struck down by the Supreme Court or repealed by a future Congress.
Overwhelming evidence against the interpretation of “subject to the jurisdiction thereof,” or “not subject to any foreign power” as reaffirming the common law doctrine of citizenship by birth to aliens can be found following the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment. In 1867 George Helm Yeaman, United States Minister to Denmark, in his well received treatise on allegiance and citizenship, which was presented to Secretary of State William H. Seward, said: “But the idea of a double allegiance and citizenship united in the same person, and having reference to two separate, independent, and sovereign nations or governments, is simply an impossibility.”
In the year 1873 the United States Attorney General ruled the word “jurisdiction” under the Fourteenth Amendment to mean, which Justice Gray would recognize in Elk v.Wilkins years later:
The word “jurisdiction” must be understood to mean absolute and complete jurisdiction, such as the United States had over its citizens before the adoption of this amendment… Aliens, among whom are persons born here and naturalized abroad, dwelling or being in this country, are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States only to a limited extent. Political and military rights and duties do not pertain to them. (14 Op. Atty-Gen. 300.)
House Report No. 784, dated June 22, 1874, stated, “The United States have not recognized a double allegiance. By our law a citizen is bound to be ‘true and faithful’ alone to our government.” There is no way in the world anyone can claim “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” affirms the feudal common law doctrine of birth citizenship to aliens because such doctrine by operation creates a “double allegiance” between separate nations.
If there is one inescapable truth to the text and debates, it is this: When Congress decided to require potential citizens to first be subject to the complete jurisdiction of the United States they by default excluded all citizens of other nations temporarily residing in the U.S. who had no intention of becoming citizens themselves or, disqualified of doing so under naturalization laws. This was no oversight because it was too simple to declare the common law rule of jus soli if indeed that was truly the desired goal by these very competent lawyers (both Howard and Trumbull were lawyers).
Aaron Sargent, a Representative from California during the Naturalization Act of 1870 debates said the Fourteenth Amendment’s citizenship clause was not a de-facto right for aliens to obtain citizenship. No one came forward to dispute this conclusion.
Perhaps because he was absolutely correct. What do you think about that TED CRUZ?
The above are starters.
