“If you don’t like it, change the Constitution, but that is the law of the land.”
Please show me where it says that the exclusionary clause is for diplomats!
This is the “law of the land” because no one has directly challenged this view!
If the fourteenth amendment is very clear, then why did all American-born Indians have to get citizenship through a congressional law in 1924?!?!?!
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.
Only diplomats are not under jurisdiction of the United States by treaty. Thus, if you are not under jurisdiction of the United States, you are covered by diplomatic immunity.
The Snyder Act closed the "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof" loophole concerning Indians born on reservations or other native ruled territories that were semi-autonomous.
