    The Constitution clearly gives the federal government power in creating laws involving citizenship and naturalization.

    What I don't see in the US Constitution is that the federal government has a role with non-citizens. I see nothing granting them the authority to deny non-citizens from living in the United States.

    If you can clarify this for me please go ahead. I don't care to hear any excuses that logically lead to the same reasoning that liberals use for nationalized health care...

    You can not be serious. A sovereign State needs no Constitutional language to give them power over determining whether foreigners can or can not reside within the Boundaries of the Country.

    Immigration is a fundamental part of naturalization. You cannot become a naturalized citizen unless you're a full-time resident of the USA. The uniform rule of naturalization includes every potential step of the process from applying for entry into the US to the final oath taken by a newly naturalized citizen.

    Congress's power to regulate commerce with foreign nations is also taken to give them authority over immigration. The Supreme Court long ago recognized that commerce includes the migration of people as well as exchanges of goods.

    What if you have no intention of becoming a naturalized citizen? This process has nothing to do with you.

    So people are nothing more than a "good" of another nation that they had no choice of being born in?

    The government is tasked with Protecting the Borders of the US, and its sovereignty. That alone gives them jurisdiction over those not hear legally as the can pose an economic or even National Security threat to the country. A person being here against our laws is a violation of our National sovereignty.

    I don't want answers that are about as well thought out as:

    A sovereign State needs no Constitutional language to give them power to ban private health care within the boundaries of the country.


    That seems to be the only "answer" you have at the moment. I could have gotten that answer at the Al Franken Fanclub forum. Step your game up...
