Infantile.<quoted text> nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
You can see they were speaking of local, state and federal jurisdiction, not the jurisdiction of the US Constitution, this does not come until they are citizens.
Got a clue what "any person" means?
According to BirfoonBoy, the Fourteenth Amendment's mandate for equal protection is beyond the jurisdiction of the Constitution. Schizophrenic. The mandate places equal protection under the States clearly under the purview of the Constitution. Please take your meds.
See also the Fifth Amendment.
"No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."
Faced with the flat out contradiction in his muddled thinking, BirfoonBoy declares, "something is wrong."
Finally he got something right.
Now how could the Congress, which included many of the FRAMERS of the Constitution be so "wrong"?
How could they possibly think an alien could, indeed, must reside in the US under US jurisdiction precedent to citizenship?
Evidently something is wrong. Reality contradicts BirfoonBoy.
"That any Alien being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and UNDER THE JURISDICTION OF THE UNITED STATES for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof ...." Naturalization Act of 1790.[Emphasis added.]
C'mon moron, please tell me how you just kicked my ass.
