Naturalization First Appeared in the Constitution


The origin of the term and concept of naturalization first appeared in the Constitution. At one time there was some confusion over who could actually grant naturalization. In the final analysis, it was to be done by any "court having common-law juris

(I-Newswire) December 19, 2008 - In terms of history, not many Americans are aware that naturalization is a part of the founding Constitution. In fact, it mentions "natural born citizen" within its four corners. Thomas Jefferson was responsible for drafting the first Act and made use of two phrases as being interchangeable -- native born and natural born.

Since that time the phrase naturalized means to become natural born, meaning become a citizen. When it comes to the details of becoming a citizen by today's legal standards, hire an immigration attorney who understands the process intimately. Rifkin, Fox-Isicoff, P.A., of Miami and Orlando, is a top law firm with a superior track record of helping those seeking naturalization.

Of interest to historians and those with a legal background, there is a loophole in the Constitution. It does not mandate race-neutral immigration/naturalization. In fact, until 1952 the acts dealing with naturalization only allowed white people to be naturalized. There was one exception when the Supreme Court deemed that to be illegal. For reasons since lost in the annals of history, no one knows why that ruling never held fast beyond two years.

Read the Fourteenth Amendment to see what it states about naturalization. Prior to this particular amendment, each state could set their own standards for citizenship; to say that caused undue confusion would be a major understatement.

To this day there is still some noted, but ignored, confusion with the way this amendment is worded. It is also rather ambiguous about "United States" being singular or plural. Historically the meaning was used either singly or in the plural, depending on how it was used.

Once the dust from the Civil War died down, the phrase the "United States" began to be used in the singular. These types of legal questions aside, a competent immigration attorney such as Rifkin, Fox-Isicoff, P.A., is very knowledgeable regarding what is needed to process an application for citizenship. Do not attempt to do this process alone without the assistance of a qualified attorney.
