Anchor baby citizenship granted to those residing here illegally is policy; not law. As yes SCOTUS has not defined birth right citizenship to those who are not ....."under the jurisdiction thereof"........., but it should.

This is a US constitution express language definition in need of definitive interpretation by a strict constructionist court; not a social activist court. Hopefully this case will ripen in due time.

US citizenship is coveted and precious and should be determined by law; not policy. US citizenship should also be celebrated as our one shining common denominator, linking all of us together with at least this one basic fundamental shared status. We then build bridges from there.

TonyL,

The left is desperate that Kamala's record on mass incarceration, opposition to school choice and proposed tax hikes not be spoken about so they are pushing birtherism as hard as possible. Trump's interview with Maria Bartiromo mentions the former, and not a word on the later.

Beniamino

@ Stephanie

She also needs to deliver an acceptance speech at the "convention" (whatever form that ultimately takes) without hyperventilating &/or having a nervous breakdown. No easy feat for our intrepid young prosecutor who frequently sounds as though she's about to burst out crying in any kind of public-speaking setting (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0WcMa2Q8Ng). That is of course when she isn't cackling with maniacal delight in the contemplation of her awesome prosecutorial powers (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhJwmIPRmYk).

Biden has made it clear that he requires a co-governor in his vice president. He believes his forte is foreign policy and his strategic vision is to restore American leadership. Domestically, he needs someone who can deal with the enormous challenge to the stability of our urban centers: the Black rebellion.

I thought it would be Rice too, she's sharper than Harris. I imagine Rice opted for SoS and may be aware her personality is ill-suited for campaigning. The smart move would have been a woman from Texas. Polling shows Texas just might be up for grabs.

Who do you have in mind, Jackson-Lee? I visited her in her office once. My God! The African Queen.

Mark Logan

I'm not sure, but not Jackson-Lee, although that would've been a hoot. I assumed there must be at least one sane female Texas politician out there somewhere. Doesn't have to be black.

Mister Odwin

Sorry
I’m back again
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States

Natural born citizen, in this context, is to differentiate between those who were born in the British colonies and were part of the revolutionary movement, The founders- and those who would succeed them when that generation passed on.
Children of two citizens. Natural Born Citizens, with no divided allegiance at birth.

If my reading of this is in error, I will shut up and listen

More likely to go to war with Cuba.

I don't believe she has any beliefs. She is naked, none too bright ambition. She comes from very clever, very high achieving parents, and I have no idea how one manages to fail the bar exam from her background. But it was obvious that her goal was always politics.

She is selected because she will unlock the Clinton money, and she represents that clique within the Party. She went to meet with HRC in the Hamptons early in the Presidential campaign, and "bent the knee".

Selecting her gives the Clintons their seat at the table. It also tells you how comfortable the Biden camp is with their prospects of victory. Selecting her tells you they think they have it sewed up.

She is not a "leftist", unless you consider the Clinton's leftist. This selection directly pisses in the face of BLM and the Berners. Its indicative of supreme confidence and also potentially hubris. You never know what you don't know, and I was raised to keep on running till I cross the tape. Right now the Dem campaign has switched to dividing the spoils.

I would have supported Bernie in the Presidential. I might vote for Trump over a Biden-Harris ticket. What Harris did to black people in California is a disqualification from office, in my extremely leftwing view.
