Judge Punts On Citizenship

A lot more reading than I have time for right now, but it looks like the Georgia court has punted on the eligibility case.

To me the overall issue looks like a clear erosion of the meaning of citizenship, whatever that means to a people. It’s possible that the plaintiffs approached the issue from too many less relevant angles, and made the core issue less discernable. My father forged his birth certificate to fight WWII. That angle has never been of primarily interest to me. What it means to be a citizen as defined in the Constitution, seems relevant to every discussion: How do you address immigration, if you don’t have clear standards of citizenship.
