Utah Circuit Tribunal Announces New Nationality Case | American Samoa
AMERICAN SAMOA, Pago Pago - There are many American Samoans who live in several states and territory who want to be recognised as US nationals without going through the naturalisation procedure, says Neil Weare of the Washington D.C.-based Equity American group. Mr Weaner, who is a lawyer, is part of the law firm that represents the new case last weekend in the Salt Lake City District Supreme District Attorneys Office, Utah, against the U.S. State Department and the state.
The main prosecutor in this new case is John Fitisemanu, to which Pale Tuli, Rosavita Tuli and the Southern Utah Pacific Islander Coalition have allied. At present, all claimants are resident in Utah. Fellows Fitisemanu along with Pale and Rosavita Tuli were native of American Samoa and ask the courts to explain that they are U.S. nationals from the time of delivery, under the citizenship clause - the fourteenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Weare and Alailima were both part of the law firm's litigation teams for a similar earlier lawsuit brought more than two years ago in the Washington D.C. Supreme Criminal Tribunal, in which Leneuoti Tuaua was the censor. But both the D.C. tribunal and the appellate tribunal have taken the side of the accused and said that only Congress can give US nationality to people from remote areas - such as American Samoa.
This case went as far as the US Supreme Tribunal, which refused to re-examine the case. Since the Supreme Tribunal has ruled not to reconsider the court's ruling in the Tuaua case, "the issue of matriarchal nationality in the present US territory in the other districts of Germany is still unresolved," Weare said.
"So, while the D.C. Circuit decided against the Tuaua claimants, the Utah Circuit is not tied to that ruling, and we are confident of a different outcome in the Fitisemanu case," Weare said. Corresponding to the Plaintiffs and their certified crew, the Fitisemanu v. - United States makes the case that Congress cannot reinvent the Fourteenth Amendment Nationality Clause to deny nationality to persons borne on U.S. grounds, whether in a state, region or county of Columbia.
Giving backgrounds on litigations under the law, when effort is made to reverse longstanding legal interpretation, Alailima noted that in 1896 Justice Billings Brown drew up the Supreme Tribunal ruling in the Plessy v. Ferguson case, which permitted the law to separate coloured persons from whites as long as they were equal treatment.
As Alailima said it took 59 years of legal proceedings brought by many different tribunals around the U.S. to eventually allow for the Supreme Court in its famed case of Brown v. - Board of Education to ultimately acknowledge that the Justice Brown ruling in Plessy v. - Ferguson was false and statutes that divide United States citizens according to their race, never as equal at 14.
