Revise, or Repeal and Replace the Fourteenth Amendment sign now

Whereas the Fourteenth Amendment to our Constitution was created and ratified to allow those individuals, and their subsequent children, to become citizens whom where brought to, and held in, these United States against their will, and, further, that this Amendment is now being abused by those whom, of their own free will and accord, come here by any means possible, we, the undersigned, petition the Congress of These United States to make the necessary REVISION to, and/or REPEAL and REPLACE, the Fourteenth Amendment. Specifically Section 1., which reads: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

We respectfully request that Section 1. be revised to read: All persons born of citizens, natural or naturalized, in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. All persons born of non-citizens shall be deemed to be a citizen of the country in which the mother holds citizenship, and shall become a citizen of the United States, and be entitled to the benefits of that citizenship, only after the mother, or child as an adult, applies for citizenship and/or becomes naturalized. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Additionally, we request that Section 2. be changed by removing the terminology excluding Indians not taxed from the following text: Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, (See Note 15) and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

Sections 3. through 5. shall stand as written, and be included in any revision or replacement of the Fourteenth Amendment. They are as follows:
Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.
Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

Furthermore, we request that this REVISION or REPLACEMENT be offered for RATIFICATION by CONVENTION within one year of its passage by Congress, and that it holds any and all provisions necessary to sustain and protect any and all other Amendments previously passed and ratified.
