14 states may target birthright citizenship - Yahoo! News
Change has to start somewhere.
No state can deny anyone citizenship even if they were a born to non-citizens. The ammendment and thereby the constitution is clear on this matter. A state can pass a referendum if they so choose but it is non-binding. The only way to clear this up is through another ammendment. If there are 15 states wanting this, they need another 19 states and they can get an amendment or even call for a constitutional convention.
one wonders how one gets a drivers license or a passport without a birth certificate....least of all become president....
States lack the jurisdiction to repeal the 14th amendment
When exactly did the matter become clear? Why? How? What would you describe about how the matter was handled before the epiphany?
Follow the money.
Oh, it is easy. You just take in a copy of the BC.
We should cut off this practice. I doubt Mexico does this crap either.
I just renewed my Driver's License in Maine. And they required that I either have a birth certificate or a passport. Luckily, they accepted my passport which is expired by a few years. I renewed it on a Wednesday prior to my Saturday birthday. I would have been fucked had they not accepted my passport.
I think that states should give drivers licenses to legal foreigners, but with a special notation on the ID showing that they are not a citizen and with an expiration date no later than the visa expiration date.
The silly season has begun.
