Temecula Constitution Class: Immigration, Slavery, and Prohibitions to the Federal Government

Article I, Section 9

Article I, Section 9, Clause 1 is obsolete, or so we are told. The clause addressed the Atlantic slave trade, and the migration of people into the United States. Slavery was abolished by Amendment 13 so the part of Article I, Section 9, Clause 1 that addresses slavery is obsolete. But is the part about migration still in force?

The Federal Government in Article I, Section 9 is also prohibited from doing certain things, and we will discuss them. . . such as Habeas Corpus, Bills of Attainder, and more.

Join us at 6:00 pm in Temecula for our Constitution Class at Faith Armory.
