Just answer the question. You claim that anyone whose status is governed by 8 USC is an alien first. Yet § 1401 describes who is a citizen at birth. So: when--for what period of their life--is someone who's a "citizen at birth" an alien?
When is someone who's a "citizen of the United States at birth" ever an alien? In the womb?
Did I ever say the child was an alien? (specific reply, please)
Or did I only say that the parent, or parents, were aliens?
