Expatriation Statute 1868

Expatriation Statute 1868,   Quoted by Robert-Dean:House
.
Fortieth Congress, Sess. II. Ch. 249 1868.  Bottom of page 223.  Chap. CCXLLX – An act concerning the Right of American Citizens in foreign States.  July 27, 1868.
.
Whereas the right of expatriation is a natural and inherent right of all people indispensable to the enjoyment of the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and whereas in the recognition of this principle this government has freely received emigrants from all nations, and invested them with the rights of citizenship; and whereas it is claimed that such American citizens with their descendants, are subjects of foreign states, owing allegiance to the government thereof; and whereas it is necessary to the maintenance of public peace that this claim of foreign allegiance should be promptly and finally disavowed;  Therefor,
.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That any declaration, instruction, opinion, order, or decision of any officers of this government which denies, restricts, impairs, or questions the right of expatriation, is hereby declared inconsistent with the fundamental principles of the government.
.
Sec. 2.  And be it further enacted, That all naturalized citizens of the United States, while in foreign states, shall be entitled to, and shall receive from this government, the same protection of persons and property that is accorded to native-born citizens in like situations and circumstances.
.
Sec. 3  And be it  further enacted, That whenever it shall be made known to the President that any citizen of the United States has been unjustly deprived of the liberty by or under the authority of any foreign government, it shall be the duty of the President forthwith to demand of that government the reasons for such imprisonment, and if it appears to be wrongful and in violation of the rights of American citizenship, the President shall forthwith demand the release of such citizen, and if the release so demanded is unreasonably delayed or refused, it shall be the duty of the President to use such means, not amounting to acts of war, as he may think necessary and proper to obtain or effectuate such release, and all the facts and proceedings relative thereto shall as soon as practicable be communicated by the President to Congress.   Approved, July 27, 1868.

What they are saying in the Expatriation Statute of 1868.  by Robert-Dean:House

Notice first that this is a STATUTE?  A statute is a copyright instrument created by its creator for a specific purpose.
.
All people have the right to know that this government takes in emigrants and places them under this government with citizen-ship now known as an American citizen.
.
There are also people from foreign states, owing allegiance to the governments thereof.  How many of our states today were here in 1868?  The foreign states referred to, I believe, are the states not yet declared as states and also to foreign countries.
.
The people are given the right, under maintenance of public peace, and the claim of foreign allegiance should be promptly and finally disavowed.
.
It is important to comprehend, as Anna has been trying to grind into us, that this government has been usurped by a foreign government(s) and that government is giving us, the reader, the way out of their government too.  Remember the definition of the United States in title 28 USC ss 3003, page 2, paragraph 15 of their copyright code.
.
The courts of today are being operated by this foreign government which is placing its citizens into imprisonment throughout the country.  Therefore, would Sec. 3 not apply to all those wrongfully accused.  Yes, but first they have to declare their Expatriation from the foreign state back to their original state.  Remember, most of us, except the American Indian, were once foreign to the country, therefore we must declare our status as a non-citizen people/national from the corporate United States.
