Birthright Citizenship You may have heard the term "birthright citizenship” in connection with the debate over illegal immigration that is going on. The term refers to babies born in the United States to a mother who is not in the country le- gally. Many officials believe that any child born in the United States is automatically a citizen. This has cre- ated an incentive for a number of women to come into the United States to have their babies. The basis for con- sidering these babies citizens is a part of the Fourteenth Amendment to the US. Constitution that reads: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside.” More and more people are challenging this interpre- . tation of the Fourteenth Amendment. I have done a little research and have found some interesting facts. This amendment was passed after the Civil War to give citi- zenship to former slaves. There were no laws limiting immigration at the time. Therefore, when drafting the Fourteenth Amendment, no consideration was given to illegal immigrants, because there were none at that time. There was discussion about the children of foreigners visiting here, and diplomats. Senator Jacob Howard who was instrumental in getting the Fourteenth Amendment passed, in discussing this section said: “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 accred- ited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons.” If the intent of this provision was to include anyone born in the United States, they could have just said that. There would have been no reason to add the language "and subject to the jurisdiction thereof” if that was the in- tent. Chairman of the House, Judiciary Committee (39th Congress), James F. Wilson of Iowa, confirmed on March 1, 1866 that children under this class of aliens would not be citizens stating: "We must depend on the general law relating to sub— jects and citizens recognized by all nations for a defini- tion, and that must lead us to the conclusion that every person born in the United States is a natural-born citi- zen of such States, except that of children born on our soil to temporary sojourners or representatives of for- eign Governments.” You might want to bring this issue to the attention of the presidential candidates when you see them. Some of them don’t seem to understand the issue.
