    It is time to put this idiotic left-wing false narrative to rest once and for all. The U.S. Constitution is not an international document. As such, it applies to U.S. citizens on U.S. soil only. A non-US citizen has no constitutional rights. None. They don't have a right to free speech. The don't have a right to keep and bear arms. They don't have a right to an attorney. They don't have a right to a phone call. And they can absolutely be held indefinitely without being charged. They have no rights.

    230 or so odd years of judicial precedent and interpretation disagree with you.

    But, I don't imagine you'll let anything so insignificant as reality stop you from believing what you want.

    "Judicial Precedence" isn't the supreme law of the land, snowflake. The U.S. Constitution is and it is very clear that you are dead-wrong (as usual).

    :lol:

    Actually, it's universally agreed upon that many parts of the Constitution apply to everyone under the jurisdiction of the United States - meaning everyone within it's borders, other than diplomats. It's in the text.

    Shouting on the internet will not change that reality.

    Yeah, why would you think that you can just making it up, and having judges make it up... and now the document means whatever you want?

    No. Sorry.

    The constitution has a specific meaning, and it can't just be "judicial precdented" away. Nor can you just 're-interpret" it to mean something it doesn't.

    I don't care about your dumb judges, nor do I care about your interpretations. If you get to make it up, then so do I. 'relative truth' is a double edged blade. You start swinging that around, and you'll cut off your own head.

    If everything is up to interpretation, then why do you claim Trump doesn't believe things based on facts? After all... he's just interpreting them differently than you. So shut up about it.

    Everything that you know about the Constitution is someone's interpretation of it.

    A plain-text reading of it is very clear - the majority of the bill of rights applies to everyone within the borders of the United States, not just to citizens.

    This is universally agreed upon by anyone who understands what they're talking about.

    Actually - it's not. I don't agree to that at all. So much for your lie that it is "universally agreed upon". Oops. By the way, I highlighted the fact that you contradict yourself in the same breath. :laugh:
    The U.S. Constitution is not an international document. Lying about it on the internet will not change that.

    None. The U.S. Constitution authorizes no "body" to "interpret" it. Sorry, not sorry.

    That's a very special form of idiocy that I can't even wrap my head around. Everything that I know about the U.S. Constitution comes from reading it. I've never listened to someone else's "interpretation" about it. Not once.
