Since the beginning of the popular internet, there has always been some place filled with numerous animations, sparkle-glitter effects, and music playing in the background without your permission. These places used to be commonly found on places such as Tripod and Angelfire. Now they’re here and it’s almost retro somehow.
Is Jade a U.S. citizen?
According to the U.S. state department website for international adoptions, a child is a U.S. citizen if these conditions are met.
- At least one of the child’s parents is a U.S. citizen;
- The child is under 18 after February 27, 2001;
- The child lives in the legal and physical custody of the American citizen parent;
- The child is admitted into the United States as an immigrant for lawful permanent residence
- The adoption is final.
Grandpa Harley is almost certainly a U.S. citizen since he was adopted by the citizen Colonel Sassacre and raised in the U.S.
The question remaining is under what laws would Jade’s island at (-0.955766,-174.759521) fall under? It is safe to assume that it would follow the laws of whatever national waters it happens to lie in.
Using marineregions.org’s mapping tool for Exclusive Economic Zones, we find that the location falls within U.S. waters in the Howland and Baker Island area.
This is not the physical U.S. but it falls under U.S. jurisdiction. This is ambiguous.
However, this is assuming that Jade had to be adopted into U.S. citizenship. Her meteor crashed into the Betty Crocker factory in John Egbert’s town of Maple Valley in Washington state. This is her effective birthplace since The Veil in the Medium is not a place for earth legal purposes: how can a place that does not technically exist yet be a real location in law?
Jade is a U.S. citizen because her effective earth birthplace was in Washington state in the U.S.
