6. Great article, thanks! Also see Prof. Tribe's comments.....

Love this first paragraph.....

ďIt is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties,Ē James Madison wrote in 1785. President Donald Trump confirmed Tuesday that he plans to move from experimentation on liberty into widespread application of the tyrantís playbook.

Thank you James Madison, and I'm delighted there's a deluge of legal experts like Prof. Epps and Prof. Lawrence Tribe speaking their mind very quickly to put the orange clown in his place, :

Laurence Tribe @tribelaw: Itís an understatement to say thereís a consensus among experts that Trumpís promise to end birthright citizenship for babies born in the USA to undocumented mothers is a legally untenable political stunt. No respected currently active scholar disagrees.
