Sorry Illegals, The 14th Amendment Is For Me, But Not For Thee

POTUS is considering an Executive Order that would deny citizenship to anchor babies born on American soil to women who are not US citizens. The libs are going nuts over this proposed EO and it will most likely get shipped to the Supreme Court if issued.

Sen. Jacob Howard

However, the author of the 14th Amendment (adopted on July 9, 1868) was Senator Jacob M. Howard of Michigan, and he stated the purpose of this Amendment; it had nothing to do with illegal aliens. It applied solely to slaves who had been recently freed under the 13th Amendment.
Unfortunately for liberals, it was only for granting citizenship to recently freed African slaves, not foreigners. In fact, it didn’t even include Native Americans.
Howard wrote “that every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. 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 accredited to the government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.”

Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley, who has been working on illegal immigration and visa issues for years, believes the Amendment should be reconsidered saying, “The United States welcomes immigrants from all over the world who pursue the legal options available to them to seek permanent residence or citizenship in our country. Birthright citizenship for the children of permanent resident immigrants under the Fourteenth Amendment is settled law, as decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in United States v. Wong Kim Ark," Grassley released in a statement Tuesday afternoon. "There is a debate among legal scholars about whether that right extends to the children of illegal immigrants. I will closely review President Trump’s executive order. As a general matter, this is an issue that Congress should take the lead to carefully consider and debate.
