"Legal experts have debated for years how to interpret the citizenship clause of the Constitution's 14th Amendment, but the consensus is one-sided: Most agree with the long-held tradition that it grants citizenship to those born on USA soil", writes Robert Barnes, chief Supreme Court correspondent for the Washington Post.
In effect, the Court ruled that US citizenship was reserved for white people. That ruling became infamous. And their citizenship was guaranteed in the 14th Amendment (1868). Paradoxically, the plaintiffs then allege the "Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment applies to all "persons" on United States soil".

Graham scathingly condemned the Democratic Party's attempts to derail the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last month, and has embraced the president's fondness for wading into America's culture wars with headline-grabbing soundbites. The Supreme Court ruled in his favor, declaring that "citizenship by birth is established by the mere fact of birth under the circumstances defined in the Constitution". "It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States". His case, however, has remained fundamental.
