Five years after the Naturalization Act of 1790, Congress repealed the ACT of 1790, because itfailed to specify its intent clear enough.The
Act of January 29, 1795
sought to "complete" the intent of what lay in the term "naturalborn citizen" as it was used in what we now call the US Constitution's Article 2.1.5 clause.That
"natural born citizens of the United States"
only born to a US Citizen Father at the time of their birth who had only one nationalityand legience at the time of the child's birth;
2) that the clear and obvious intent of the language of the statute was
that the child also neverhave a dual nationality or any other legience than that of the United States for their entireexistence from birth to the grave.
In Section 1, any citizen that naturalized to the United States and who was to have any naturalborn son was required to
[be free of]
all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince,potentate, state, or sovereignty whatever."
This was so important it was repeated that he be someone who
"absolutely and entirelyrenounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, orsovereignty whatever".
He was also to be
"a man of a good moral character, attached tothe principles of the constitution of the United States, and well disposed to the good orderand happiness of the same."
In Section 2,
any citizen that naturalized to the United States and who was to have any naturalborn son was required to
"support the constitution of the United States; and that he doesabsolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreignprince, potentate, state, or sovereignty whatever".
In other words,
the father "of a US Natural Born Citizen defined son" was never to be aforeign national
, as Obama's father was. Obama's father was an alien national Citizen of Kenya, under the Colonial Commonwealth Protectorate of Great Britain. He was NEVER a USCitizen, nor even had any expressed desire to be (not that such would have helped...it wouldn'thave).And
never in the child's life was that child to be a de facto or de jure citizen of a foreignnation as Obama was in Indonesia
so adopted and legally made a citizen minor underguardianship in that foreign society out of Jakarta, and attending Menteng 1.Just one year after the above-cited Act of 1795,in
Ware v. Hylton, 3 U.S. 3 Dall. 199 (1796)
we find how that we are supposed to read the US Constitution, in its literal context.@240
we collect the intention from the words only, as they lie in the writing before us, it is aliteral interpretation
indeed if the words and the construction of a writing are clear and precise, we can scarce call it interpretation to collect the intention
