Wong Kim Ark

For very interesting background about a cook named Wong Kim Ark, the "father of birthright citizenship," click here.   His case United States v. Wong Kim Ark was "a `test case' brought by the United States government, egged on by a wave of anti-Chinese sentiment, in an effort to undermine the 14th Amendment `birthright' provision which made Wong a citizen . . . . "
