The U. Congress passed The Expatriation Act of one day prior to the pronouncement of the ratification of the 14th Amendment.

The Expatriation Act of made official the Congressional view that every individual on earth has the absolute right to expatriate remove himself from one government to another if he so desires. The Expatriation Act was, in reality, an effort to cover up a substantial error contained in the 13th Article of Amendment, which reads: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereon the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

The fact was that the Congress knew they had no such jurisdiction, and so The Expatriation Act was their offer to the Blacks to expatriate themselves, i.

After over years of slavery and forced illiteracy by the threat of death if caught reading a book, Blacks had 24 hours to make this decision. Where were Blacks to go, and with what? In this manner, Congress was attempting to free itself of the responsibility for slavery. Repatriation, Reparations and Self Determination should have been offered to the slaves.

Since the ignorant Blacks knew nothing of this Expatriation Act, few, if any took advantage of it. A very few did sign papers for this act. The inaction of the remainder of the Blacks most of us did, however, in the eye of the Congress, make our future servitude "voluntary" thus conforming to the intent of the 13th Amendment. The legal status of Blacks is continued enslavement, i. White People pay direct taxes under the Constitution in Article I, Section 2, Clause 3 : "Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States" As such, there are two citizenships in America, one for Whites and one for Blacks, and two direct Taxing structures, one for Whites and one for Blacks, which is racial discrimination.

These differences are in violation of International Law and serve to explain our continued confusion and apprehensions about our legal status in America. Attorney Dr. Robert L. Government you will not be obligated to pay U. Expatriation does not mean that you will have to leave the United States. You can maintain residency in the U.

What more to have residency based upon choice via Expatriation, with an end to illegal taxation? Africans did not come to the U. This is a fuller preamble, " The use of the words "foreign allegiance" is also vague and could mean a country or sister state in the union. The states are not only foreign to each other, they are foreign to the United States. This is also true for the United States as it recognizes the states as foreign countries.

Something else to keep in mind Congress did not specify the existance of separate american nationalities until when it did so through the Nationality Act of My apologies to Bork, as I do not wish to copy his entire book to the forum of course.

Property rights of citizens. All citizens of the United States shall have the same right, in every State and Territory, as is enjoyed by white citizens thereof to inherit, purchase, lease, sell, hold, and convey real and personal property.

Such persons did not have state nationality, but rather United States nationality. Accordingly: 1. The above law Title 42 USC, just states enforces that the freed slaves have the same property rights as white pople. All United States citizens in de facto States are entitled to the same rights as de jure citizens i. Hence, all United States citizens are to stand on equal grounds as that of native born state national. As a matter of law, and under legal premise, a de jure state national is still under the protection of the original premise of the United States Constitution.

The real peculiar thing is, someone failed to tell all of Anglo persuasion that they were also deemed citizens of the United States and where also given the status of denizens with limited natural rights.

Expatriation Act of 1907

Background[ edit ] This act was an attempt by Congress to resolve issues related to the status of citizenship, including those Americans living outside the United States, married women, and children born outside the country to American citizens. A particular concern during the last half of the nineteenth century was that of dual citizenship. During this period, several countries had established laws which gave their nationality to alien wives of male citizens. Did this then grant dual citizenship to American women married to men from these countries? Grant attempted to resolve this issue. Following the wedding, the couple left the country to reside in Great Britain. British law stated that an alien woman became an English subject when she married a citizen of Great Britain.
