14th Amendment to the Constitution

I was reading blogs tonight and came upon an article at Third World County called Promoting harmful myths. And, the one thing that hit me was the myth that anyone born in the US is automatically a citizen. According to Section one of the amendment, it is not true. Please read the entire article over at Third World County.

1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States,
and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are
citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Thanks for the comment/linkage. The brief discussion in comments expands on the post quite a bit, as well, including a link to a recent *amicus* brief on a case the SCOTUS avoided hearing... *heh*
