It doesn’t surprise me that many people question President Obama’s citizenship after all The United States immigration policy is an anti-American joke. United States Citizenship is no longer sacrosanct as this article will reveal. Our elected officials once again are blowing smoke with their claims for reform as America hasn’t had a real immigration policy for some time.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services ( www.uscis.gov ), U.S. citizen applicants are no longer required to take the standard oath of allegiance which includes the following statements:
“that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the armed forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”
Applicants for U.S. citizenship can now apply for a myriad of “exemptions” (or waiver) from what most Americans believe are a foundation of U.S. citizenship. Apparently our government has decided that saying “so help me God” and potential military service is no longer a reasonable requirement for people seeking to be called American.
In the past all foreign born applicants for U.S. naturalization were also required to prove that they are proficient in reading /writing (in English) and pass a basic civics test to prove their understanding of U.S. history and government. However that requirement has also been changed to allow for “exemption”; citizenship civics tests are now given in the applicant’s choice of languages hereby rendering English proficiency unnecessary.
The American public would do well to take notice of the anti-American policies that have evolved in our so called existing immigration law before considering further reform. How does our government ever expect to maintain any respect for our national identity by making immigrant assimilation and citizen loyalty an option? Perhaps the answer can be found in another U.S. immigration policy destroying our Republic: U.S. government recognition of Dual citizenship.
According to existing immigration policy the oath of U.S. allegiance begins with the following statement:
“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same”.
How is it possible to swear to this statement and still maintain citizenship in any country other than the United States? More importantly how can our new citizens be trusted to be respectful of our laws and customs if they are allowed to share their allegiances and fidelity to other countries. Countries that may be our enemy. Possessing dual citizenship is a violation of their oath off citizenship and should be immediate grounds for deportation. Yet our government’s immigration policy allows this fraud to be perpetrated on our citizens every day.
Our immigration system is more broken than our elected officials are admitting. It’s no wonder the Muslim Brotherhood is having lunch with our President and members of our Legislature. It doesn’t surprise me that people with dual citizenship are allowed to contribute to candidates and vote in our precious elections using their language of national origin. It can be argued that our existing immigration policies, as I have previously outlined are seditious by nature if not by design.
U.S. immigration policies have undergone a variety of transformations since the 1960’s. All of the policies outlined in this article undermine the basic premise of U.S. citizenship and the Constitutional freedoms and liberty it provides. Sworn loyalty and devotion to American core principles are no longer required of our immigrant population or our government. My guess is immigration reform will not address these issues unless its citizens demand it of our legislature. To ignore this issue may mean the death of everything American and future rule by fiat will become as common as legislators with dual citizenship.
Warning: There is no U.S. law prohibiting a dual citizen from running for our Federal Legislature.
