Publicly traded limited liability corporations are creations of state charters, which are creations of the law. They are chartered as “artificial persons.” So a corporation is neither born or naturalized as citizens of the United States in any traditional sense of the word. The 14th Amendment of the Constitution reads as follows:
“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
Consequently, the very idea that corporations as artificial persons have constitutional rights is a lie since they are neither born nor naturalized; they are created exactly as any piece of legislation has been.
