Jan 6 - No Citizenship For America Haters

Rating: 7 votes, 5.00 average.

-----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

January 6, 2011,0106.shtm


1. Comment: No Citizenship For America Haters - Not satisfied by

visiting the sins of the parents upon the foreign-born children

of the undocumented (in killing the DREAM Act), the anti-

immigrationists are now taking aim at the American-born children

of the undocumented. Even though this would mean throwing away

the rule of the law - the centuries old doctrine of jus soli

which has always been the bedrock of American citizenship - the

anti-immigrationists are not troubled by trifles such as

following the plain language of the constitution.

The anti-immigrationists' fantasies rest on the belief that the

phrase "subject to the jurisdiction thereof" in the 14th

amendment somehow implies that the undocumented are exempt from

the jurisdiction of US law, and therefore from the benefits of

the 14th amendment also. In an article

debunking this maliciously fraudulent misinterpretation of the

14th amendment, James Ho writes:

"A foreign national living in the United States is "subject to

the jurisdiction thereof" because he is legally required to obey

U.S. law. (By contrast, a foreign diplomat who travels here on

behalf of a foreign sovereign enjoys diplomatic immunity from-and

thus is not subject to the jurisdiction of-U.S. law.) During

congressional debates, both proponents and opponents of the

citizenship clause agreed with this interpretation of the 14th

Amendment. For example, Pennsylvania Sen. Edgar Cowan opposed the

clause precisely because it would extend birthright citizenship

to the U.S.-born children of Chinese laborers and other

noncitizens who "owe [the U.S.] no allegiance [and] who pretend

to owe none." Tellingly, Cowan's racially charged opposition was

met with the following response from California Sen. John

Conness: "The proposition before us... relates simply in that

respect to the children begotten of Chinese parents in

California, and it is proposed to declare that they shall be

citizens... I am in favor of doing so... We are entirely ready to

accept the provision proposed in this constitutional amendment."

The anti-immigrationists take refuge in the argument that few

other countries scrupulously follow the jus soli doctrine,

preferring instead the jus sanguini doctrine, the very doctrine

that has consistently led to enormous ethnically-motivated

bloodshed in Europe in days past, and in Africa and Asia today.

Patently, the anti-immigrationists do not believe in American

exceptionalism. If they don't like the US constitution, and

prefer the doctrines of other countries instead, the anti-

immigrationists should leave America promptly. If not,

immigration advocates should start drafting legislative language,

including a constitutional amendment, to deport the anti-

immigrationists from the USA.

  1. Roger Algase's Avatar
    I share ID's sentiments about anti-immigrationists, but the last two sentences of its comment in today's issue are more than slightly over the top. Rather than going down to the antis' level and damaging the image of the pro-immigrant community, wouldn't it make more sense to continue to put more information out about the connection between the anti-immigrant movement and the larger issue of using hate against all minority groups, including immigrants, gays, Muslims and African-Americans, for political reasons?

    To draw an analogy, before the election, many Americans were initially duped by clever propaganda into thinking that the Tea Party was a genuinely populist grassroots movement. Now, with the Tea Party Republicans having taken over one of the Houses of Congress, or at least heavily influencing it, the public is coming to realize very quickly that the corporate interests behind the Tea Party have no concern for average Americans and that their only "principles" are hypocrisy and cynicism, whether about the deficit or any other issue.

    In the same way, the immigrant advocacy community needs to keep hitting away at the hypocrisy of the antis, who are not really interested in law enforcement, providing jobs for Americans, or anything else except fomenting hate.
