There's an Odd Claim ...

... that I've seen argued with respect to both the meaning of the phrase "natural born citizen" and to the concept of "birthright citizenship."

The claim, summarized:

"If a turn of phrase in the US Constitution partially and imperfectly matches the title of a book that some of the Constitution's framers owned, the entire content of that book is not only thereby incorporated into the Constitution itself, but supersedes any subsequent amendments to that Constitution."
