A citizen, by definition, is a member of a state or nation who owes allegiance to a nation and its government and is entitled to its protection. Thus, All American citizens owe allegiance to our nation and government and are entitled to its protection.
Currently, persons born on U.S. soil or to U.S. citizens in foreign countries are citizens or eligible citizens of the United States entitled to the freedoms, protections, and legal rights the Constitution promises. Emigrants from a foreign country can become citizens after applying for and passing a citizenship exam.
‘Dakotans for Honesty in Politics’ supports the following change:
Be it Resolved; that, all persons born to U.S. Citizens are citizens of the United States and are entitled to enjoy all of the freedoms, protections, and legal rights the Constitution promises, from the time of conception until natural death. All others are considered emigrants from a foreign country, and can become citizens after obtaining lawful visas, avoiding public assistance for a period of 2 years, obeying all state and federal laws, undergoing thorough background checks, and applying for and passing the prescribed citizenship exam.
‘Dakotans for Honesty in Politics’ opposes discrimination against or segregation of U.S. citizens by heritage, religion, ethnic background, sex, or income capacity.
