Beware of the following when reading citations:
You are probably not a man or a woman in the law. You are almost certainly a person, a legal entity just like a corporation. If you are registered to vote, have a Social Security Number, or qualify in any way other way to be a resident of your State, you are a juristic personality in the law and a citizen of the United States, a term which has changed meaning over the years.
Previous to the 14th Amendment, citizen of the United States and citizen of the United States of America were used interchangeably. After the 14th Amendment, citizens of the United States of America became an endangered species and have now all but disappeared. A citizen of the United States of America had citizenship first as a state citizen and then by reason of the Constitution had citizen rights in all other states. A citizen of the United States, post 14th Amendment, is a federal citizen who has expatriated from state citizenship into federal citizenship and changed legal status from common law man or woman to statute law person.
All these old right to travel citiations were written for state common law citizens, not federal citizens.
