  • Summary

Dr. Robert Koulish traces the history of birthplace citizenship in the United States. Because American identity is tied to an idea rather than a lineage, the Constitution tied citizenship to the place--with some exclusions. The Dred Scott and Wong Kim Ark decisions established that citizenship could not be stripped on racial grounds.
