17. They want citizenship to be statutory and not a birthright, making it a political football
IT's very dangerous to buy into frames or legal "realities" that allow citizenship, even a subspecies they want to create as a third class of citizen for qualifications purposes, can be a political football for Congress to kick around and change from time to time -- so-called "aliens" are essentially people without rights, given congress's plenary power under "naturalization". But this is quite different from naturalization, it's in the class of persons born citizens, but they want to claim some people are "unnaturally born".
