Neither the 14

In defining what an Article II “natural born Citizen” is, we do not seek to read into theConstitution that which was not intended and written there by the Framers. Despitepopular belief, the Fourteenth Amendment does not convey the status of “natural bornCitizen” in its text nor in its intent. Some add an implication to the actual wording of theFourteenth Amendment by equating the amendment’s “citizen” to Article II’s “naturalborn Citizen.” But nowhere does the 14th Amendment confer “natural born citizen”status.

It just conveys the status of “citizen,” and as we learned from how the Framers handled the Naturalization Acts of 1790 and 1795, being a “citizen” does not necessarily mean that one is a “natural bornCitizen.”The Fourteenth Amendment only tells us who may become members of the communitycalled the United States, i.e., those born on U.S. soil or naturalized and subject to the jurisdiction thereof are U.S. citizens. The amendment was needed because under Scott v.Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1856), slaves and their descendents, whether free or not, were notconsidered as being members of that community even though born on U.S. soil andunlike the American Indians subject to the jurisdiction thereof. But the amendment only
