Amnesty bill will create 20 million new Federal Citizens vs State Citizens

The proposed amnesty bill will create Federal citizens by virtue of the way the Amnesty bill is written.

Most citizens of the US are state citizens, have a birth certificate from their particular state.

If you are a believer in States rights, this is something you don't want.

Good find.

Ah yes.

The gold nugget:

"
What he and others of the States' Rights school held was that as between state citizenship and federal citizenship, the former was the more fundamental; that, in other words, the latter, except as to citizens in the Territories, was derived from the former. The fact of the federal control of naturalization Calhoun explained by alleging that that power was one which enabled Congress simply to remove the disabilities of foreign birth, the several States being left free to decide whether or not, when such disabilities had been removed from aliens resident within their borders, they should be accepted by them as citizens.
"

So can we States thus challenge the imposition of these new federal "citizens" upon us, Constitutionally (the challenge being Constitutional; NOT the unlawful imposition)? Seems like a yes, right (If we are so inclined to do, of course)?

What would the Founders do?

hadn't thought of that

but I really like the idea.

Wowzer. Some real wild implications here, I'd

imagine. Thanks for this post! (Off to read up on the matter....)

What would the Founders do?

yep

it's huge if you understand what that means.
