They both think it is all foolishness that is doomed to fail. And it might be a distraction from the more important goal of removing Pres. Trump from office.
A Black Harvard law professor and a Jewish Russian-American law professor have written a USA Today op-ed on amending the US Constitution to let foreigners run our country:
Barring naturalized citizens from eligibility for the presidency is little different from discrimination based on race, ethnicity or gender. Such unchosen circumstances of birth say nothing about a person's competence or moral fitness for office. ...Yes, I think that immigrants are less likely to be loyal.
The most obvious objection to letting immigrants ascend to the presidency is concern that they might be less loyal to the nation than native-born citizens. But there is no good reason to think that people who became Americans by choice are less likely to be loyal than those who did so merely by accident of birth.
Just look at this NY Times op-ed:
I’m a Muslim and Arab American. Will I Ever Be an Equal Citizen?She was going to return to Morocco, but she married an American and stayed.
Nearly 30 years after arriving from Morocco, after building a life and family here, I still hear: “Go back home!”
A poll says 75% of the public opposes such a change. There are at least 200 million eligible Americans. That ought to be enough.
