Legal Expert Debunks “Birthright Citizenship”

Breitbart legal analyst Ken Klukowski contends that the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, if correctly interpreted, does not confer citizenship on every person born on U.S. soil.  Appearing on Monday’s broadcast of Laura Ingraham’s radio show, He pointed to the jurisdiction clause of the 14th Amendment that makes clear that automatic citizenship for every person (such as children of illegal aliens) born in the U.S. “is not the law and it has never been the law.”

The purpose of the 14th Amendment, adopted after the War Between the States, was to make clear that the freed slaves were U.S. citizens, not to give U.S. citizenship to children of foreign citizens.
