Mark Levin appeared on The Hannity Show last night to discuss the anchor baby law which is distorting our immigration law. The majority of the American people don’t want it but no one is stopping it. In under five minutes, he proves that the 14th Amendment does not include illegal immigrants.
The author of the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment, Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan, expressly said: “This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers.”
Mark Levin said this removes all doubt as to what this clause meant.
Levin said that it’s because they are deliberately misinterpreting the Constitution. Moreover, the Supreme Court has never ruled that illegal aliens are American citizens.
The clause reads, “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.”
Levin said it is being interpreted as a matter of geography but it had nothing to do with geography, but political allegiance to the United States of America. We know that because they said it and they also excluded people the left and some Republicans want to include.
There is good news.
Article I, Section 8 clause of the Constitution says “the Congress shall have the power to establish a uniform rule of naturalization.” In other words, Congress – not the courts, ICE, the president – has the power to regulate immigration in this regard.
We don’t have to amend the Constitution, those who are saying it covers illegal immigrants have to amend the Constitution.
