NUMBER:633
AUTHOR:Henry St. George Tucker (1853–1932)
QUOTATION:If the establishment of an “unlimited” treaty power is to be the ultimate conclusion on this great question, it must be admitted that the incorporation of the treaty-making power into the Constitution of the United States was the introduction into our governmental citadel of a Trojan horse, whose armored soldiery, for years concealed within it, now step forth armed cap-à-pie, shameless in their act of deception, eager and ready to capture the citadel upon which they pretended to bestow their gift. If such construction be possible it would be of interest to know for what purpose the Tenth Amendment was ever demanded and incorporated into the Constitution.
ATTRIBUTION:HENRY ST. GEORGE TUCKER, Limitations on the Treaty-Making Power, p. 339, section 296 (1915).
SUBJECTS:Foreign policy
