The 14th Amt, Sec 1, is written; "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, "and" subject to the jurisdiction thereof", are citizens of the United States."

They are hordes of infiltrating-foreign-nationals, illegal-aliens, $ocial-anchor-babies-$ervices, criminal-gang-members, invaders !
