Can I cleanly extrapolate that into a closed border policy? Probably not . I will not that the Apostle Paul did not expect to have an open border in Israel. He took the work out to places far from Israel. I don't see much example of letting people in and finding Christianity through osmosis, but it became a belief where people took the message to people where they were. Missionaries.

I don't know where you are trying to go with this as a counter argument. I don't see an open borders, let everyone in viewpoint as Christian.

Thereby creating a politically castrated underclass that yet counted towards the total population and thus to representation in the House. As there is precedence of this action most infamously in the 3/5ths compromise theres is also cause for the amendment.

How bout dem mother fuckin apples.


Making the argument about apportioning representation in todays 'Murrica only makes sense in the apportionment of the electoral college. The rate of Federal Representation is 435 members of the US House of Representatives versus 300 plus million people. (versus 1/5000 to 1/10000 at time of ratification)

My desire to repeal the 14th is not to re-introduce "old sins". I would be in favor of an amendment with language to the effect of.

1. The 14th amendment is rescinded.
2. Citizens still have their rights, including suffrage.
3. People born on land to non US citizens are not citizens.
