Birthright Citizenship Expert: This is Not a Diversion, Trump Has Pushed Radical Plan For Years

Birthright Citizenship Expert: This is Not a Diversion, Trump Has Pushed Radical Plan For Years


Let’s go to Vice President Mike Pence speaking
to Politico on Tuesday. What I think the president has made clear
is that we are looking at action that would reconsider birthright citizenship. We all know what the 14th Amendment says. We all cherish the language of the 14th Amendment. But the Supreme Court of the United States
has never ruled on whether or not the language of the 14th Amendment—”subject to the
jurisdiction thereof”—applies specifically to people who are in the country illegally. That’s the vice president of the United
States. Professor Jones, can you respond to what he’s
saying? I can, I think with a word of caution, Amy. Vice President Pence is, I think, attempting
to distinguish the facts in our present day of a family of unauthorized immigrants who
give birth to a child in the United States with the case of Wong Kim Ark, in which Wong
Kim Ark’s parents, while not eligible for citizenship, were what we would call authorized
or legal immigrants, legal residents in the United States. And I do think this is where the question
may turn for us, going forward. Certainly, it appears that the president is
prepared to split hairs in this way. Perhaps the Senate is willing to do so, as
well. Ultimately, the meaning of this not-very-often-visited
provision of the 14th Amendment will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court. But there have been cases subsequently in
which the court ruled as to whether the children of undocumented or unauthorized citizens had
rights to equal protection or education or other issues, as well, hasn’t there been? Of course. And you are right to point to a long, more
than century-long, clear law practice, custom, that has regarded the children of unauthorized
immigrants as citizens of the United States. And I would say this is important for everything,
from the securing of a passport and travel to the receipt of public benefits. And so, you’re absolutely right that to
pose this question in 2018 is to go against more than a century of our understanding of
the 14th Amendment, its purpose and its function for Americans. And what is your assessment right now? I mean, the midterm elections are a few days
away. You have these horrific white supremacist,
racist, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic attacks that have all taken place within a week, from
the letter bomber to the attacks on African Americans in Kentucky to the 11 Jewish worshipers
who were gunned down in Pittsburgh. President Trump wants to pivot away from this—the
alleged shooters, the attackers quoting President Trump—so he throws this out. Many say this will not stand after the election;
he is just revving it up to go along with “invaders” from the south, as he puts
it. But there are others who are deeply concerned
that he is signaling now what he will do after the midterms. You have Lindsey Graham saying he’ll introduce
a bill. Your thoughts, as a historian of U.S. history,
where this goes, Professor Jones? Absolutely. I’m a student, if you will, of birthright
citizenship, and so I have followed the president’s rhetoric, the chatter, if you will, of his
base, but I have also followed the work of some of our—scholars from some of our most
eminent institutions of higher learning, who, for a very long time, have been critics of
and aiming for the 14th Amendment and its birthright provision. Certainly, there is something seemingly opportunistic
in President Trump’s announcement or revelation—right?—of his intent in this particular week. But I want to remind your viewers that this
rhetoric extends back to at least 2015, when candidate Trump made clear his intention of
challenging, troubling, undoing, curtailing the effect of the 14th Amendment’s birthright
provision. I don’t think this is a casual or off-the-cuff
or improvisational gesture by the president. This has been on his agenda for many years,
and now we are seeing it begin to get traction. I mean, it’s very interesting. He said he consulted his lawyers. His White House lawyer, McGahn, has left. The new one has not even come in yet. It’s a real question who exactly he has
consulted. Martha Jones, the author of the new book Birthright
Citizens: A History of Race and Rights in Antebellum America. It is just out. She’s the Society of Black Alumni presidential
professor and professor of history at Johns Hopkins University. She’s also the co-president of the Berkshire
Conference of Women Historians. When we come back, we head south to Brazil. What does the election of the far-right Army
captain Bolsonaro, who praises the military dictatorship, mean for Brazil, for Latin America,
for the United States and the world? Stay for us. [break] Protesters singing in the streets of Pittsburgh
during President Trump’s visit at the Tree of Life synagogue. It’s believed all local elected officials
boycotted his visit yesterday. Thousands protested in the streets.

    I am so glad Trump is showing his true self in such a large boisterous way right before the Primaries vs. after.

    I’m hoping this gets people out to vote for DEMOCRATS and slam the breaks on Trumps Agenda.

    Impeach him! Or Lock him Up both sound promising.

    You know it is a hardship thing that should apply case by case so to prevent an invasion of illegal immigration from any country not just Hispanics. Those poor people are just trying to get their families to a safer place. They are ruled by drug lords and government thugs they really don't have much of a choice. And the Jewish being shot is no different than anyone else being shot. Its bad no matter who it is, but they don't deserve special treatment above anyone else who is a victim.

    Indeed, birthright citizenship has never been explicitly granted by the 14th amendment.. This executive order will go to the Supreme Court and will be decided there. He is not dismantling the Constitution. It makes sense to stop illegal aliens from playing the anchor baby card. To call that racist is complete bs. No crisis here, it just makes sense.

    Please stop blaming Trump for the Jews killed in temple.. Sadly, Democracy Now is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and may not even know it. For proof, just click on @t. Try to find one article condemning the Palestinians or one article praising Israel.  Without a balanced approach, Democracy Now can, inadvertently, be killing more Jews and Palestinians while bringing the two parties further from peace. There’s two sides to the horrific Palestinian–Israeli issue. It sucks for both parties, and it takes creativity, tolerance, and understanding to make peace – not condemnation of just Israel. Amy Goodman, as a Jew, you should know better.

    The 14th Amendment, birthright citizenship, was NEVER intended for the children of illegal foreigners. The 14th amendment was only intended to benefit Black Americans. Democrats want to hand birthright citizenship to illegals, giving a big middle finger to American history and the history of black Americans. End birthright citizenship for illegals and revoke the citizenship of all those born to illegal parents!

Asia defended herself and the Muslim mob demanded she be arrested for blasphemy!! Pakistani officials arrested here she she spent 8 years in prison and almost got executed!!!

    Trump may have every intent of implementing this, but I still think this is a diversion.

    That does not mean ignore it! It means you should accuse them loudly of trying to divert the midterms from sensible issues, such as the massive republican tax cut for the rich, the exploding deficit it caused, and now the republicans talk of "entitlement reform", ie slashing social security and medicare.

    Do NOT let republicans turn the midterms into a referendum over birthright citizenship with all those blatant, economy breaking, middle class destroying, actions they have done and don't want to talk about.

    Any mention of Mike Pence evokes George Will's appraisal of him: "The oleaginous Mike Pence, with his talent for toadyism and appetite for obsequiousness, could, Trump knew, become America’s most repulsive public figure. And Pence, who has reached this pinnacle by dethroning his benefactor, is augmenting the public stock of useful knowledge. Because his is the authentic voice of today’s lickspittle Republican Party, he clarifies this year’s elections: Vote Republican to ratify groveling as governing."
    There is a certain kind of self-righteous, messiah mongering, Evangelical. Mike Pence is the ultimate symbol and embodiment of such people. They are absolutely certain that, in lieu of the Second Coming of Christ, they can be the stand-in until Jesus gets back.

    The doctrine of "birthright citizenship" is no where to be found in the Constitution. The 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments (Civil War Amendments) were promulgated to protect the newly freed slaves and to emphasize that they are in fact CITIZENS of the United States and privy to the same natural and constitutional rights as any other citizen. It's no coincidence that the citizenship clause is within the 14th amendment that also includes the Equal Protection Clause. Prior to the amendment, if one was a citizen of a state, there were also a citizen of the US. The states decided to nationalize the issue, because they feared that some states would not recognize the newly freed slaves as citizens.

    Here is the wording of the clause: "all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and SUBJECT TO THE JURISDICTION THEREOF, are citizens of the United States" (emphasis mine).

    It's as if the Court and politicians can elide completely any mention of jurisdiction, as if it were to say "all persons born or naturalized in the United States… are citizens of the United States," with one glaring problem: it doesn't.

    The author of the clause–Senator Jacob Howard of Michigan–made clear in the halls of Congress its intent. He explains the part about jurisdiction was meant to exclude "persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to families of ambassadors or foreign ministers," and that "jurisdiction" meant "full and complete jurisdiction."

    THE HISTORY OF BLACK AMERICA AKA” HEBREW ISRAELITE “ Deuteronomy 28 :45 – 68
    45 All these curses will come on you. They will pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the LORD your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you. 46 They will be a sign and a wonder to you and your descendants forever.47 Because you did not serve the LORD your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity,48 therefore in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the LORD sends against you. He will put an iron yoke on your neck until he has destroyed you.
    49 The LORD will bring a nation against you from far away, from the ends of the earth, like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, 50 a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young. 51 They will devour the young of your livestock and the crops of your land until you are destroyed. They will leave you no grain, new wine or olive oil, nor any calves of your herds or lambs of your flocks until you are ruined.52 They will lay siege to all the cities throughout your land until the high fortified walls in which you trust fall down. They will besiege all the cities throughout the land the LORD your God is giving you.
    53 Because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb, the flesh of the sons and daughters the LORD your God has given you. 54 Even the most gentle and sensitive man among you will have no compassion on his own brother or the wife he loves or his surviving

    53 Because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb, the flesh of the sons and daughters the LORD your God has given you. 54 Even the most gentle and sensitive man among you will have no compassion on his own brother or the wife he loves or his surviving children, 55 and he will not give to one of them any of the flesh of his children that he is eating. It will be all he has left because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of all your cities. 56 The most gentle and sensitive woman among you—so sensitive and gentle that she would not venture to touch the ground with the sole of her foot—will begrudge the husband she loves and her own son or daughter 57 the afterbirth from her womb and the children she bears. For in her dire need she intends to eat them secretly because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of your cities.
    58 If you do not carefully follow all the words of this law, which are written in this book, and do not revere this glorious and awesome name—the LORD your God— 59 the LORD will send fearful plagues on you and your descendants, harsh and prolonged disasters, and severe and lingering illnesses. 60 He will bring on you all the diseases of Egypt that you dreaded, and they will cling to you. 61 The LORD will also bring on you every kind of sickness and disaster not recorded in this Book of the Law, until you are destroyed. 62 You who were as numerous as the stars in the sky will be left but few in number, because you did not obey the LORD your God.63 Just as it pleased the LORD to make you prosper and increase in number, so it will pleasehim to ruin and destroy you. You will be uprooted from the land you are entering to possess.
    64 Then the LORD will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other.There you will worship other gods—gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your ancestors have known. 65 Among those nations you will find no repose, no resting place for the sole of your foot. There the LORD will give you an anxious mind, eyes weary with longing, and a despairing heart. 66 You will live in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day, never sure of your life. 67 In the morning you will say, “If only it were evening!” and in the evening, “If only it were morning!”—because of the terror that will fill your hearts and the sights that your eyes will see. 68 The LORD will send you back in ships to Egypt on a journey I said you should never make again. There you will offer yourselves for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy you.

    For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
    2 Timothy 3:2-4 

    "Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward" (Isaiah 1:4).

    . "Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them" (Ezekiel 22:26).

    "If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land" (2Chronicles 7:14)

    If, as the Declaration of Independence states, " governments are instituted among men (:) deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed", citizenship isnt a right , its an earned social contract and none of these systems have earned my Citizenship! Not that i search for perfection but descency, nit the samlance of it.

    Do not even think of altering the second amendment but go ahead and alter the fourth amendment. Republicans are hypocrites.

    i think what the president and this administration has made clear is that they care more about money for themselves (greed) over people. no one is illegal on stolen land.
