I anticipate I expect the left wing of the U.S. Supreme Court to favor conferring the rights and protections of U.S. citizens on foreigners. As the author of the above story points out, the decision will be in the historically bifurcated hands of Justice Kennedy known for his unpredictable findings.
A casual reading of the preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America directly addresses this issue now before the Supreme Court.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Keywords and key phrases: “we the people”, “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity”
The rights of citizenship of any country are determined by the government of the country in which the person or persons of interest lawfully reside. It’s not rocket science.
Our Constitution protects we the people of the USA. Not France. Not Germany. Not Mexico. Not Russia. Etc.
Were any Supreme Court justice to rule otherwise would constitute “bad behavior”, an impeachable offense. Reference: U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 1
