I am no expert on law, but it seems to me that if a corporation is a person, it must also be a citizen of a country. To remain in the US and earn money, it would need: a US passport or birth certificate, or a foreign passport and a working visa. A corporate "person" who claims another country as it's headquarters in order to avoid taxes should be treated as an illegal alien.



Read the Rules

So no dual citizenship(or triple quadruple etc) just like a ship has to fly a flag from the country of ownership, corporations have to pick one nation in which to incorporate and then request visas work permits residency or citizenship. I dont know what the rules are, but this is a funny thought!

I would rather see their personhood revoked, though, since they are not people. They are owned and run by people who have the same rights and are subject to the same laws as all other people, therefore business is represented.
