The term “Natural Born Citizen” has been fought over through the courts and including the US Supreme Court several times.
None of the modern day definitions or interpretations have any meaning.
The only thing that matters is what the Founders intended it to mean at the time they wrote the Constitution.
And that is that in order to be eligible to hold the office of President of The United States a person must be born of a FATHER who at the time of the person’s birth WAS a US Citizen. They applied this definition in regards to where a person’s true loyalties would be placed. Those personal and family loyalties MUST be to the place of the FATHER”S citizenship. If the FATHER was a citizen of a foreign nation, and he was NOT a US Citizen that the time of the child’s birth then it was assumed and taken to apply that the Person (child) would also hold allegiance to the place (Nation) of the Father’s citizenship. Therefore that Person could not be expected to hold his/her allegiance to the United States of America or to the Constitution of the United States.
Again; The only thing that matters is what the Founders intended it to mean at the time they wrote the Constitution.
And the “Natural Born Citizen” Clause of the US Constitution MUST be enforced.
Article II; Section I;
“No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
Father; Donald Harris, is Jamaican and a naturalized US citizen who came to America in 1963.
Upon his arrival, Harris attended the University of California, Berkeley to get his PhD in economics.
He worked as a professor of economics while also serving as an economic consultant to the Jamaican government.
Her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, 70, was an Indian immigrant. (India)
Thus, Kamala Harris, United States senator, former candidate for the president of the United States, and current prospective candidate for vice president in the upcoming election, has competing foreign citizenship with the country of Jamaica and preferential status with the country of India.
If Harris is picked by Biden, what does that say about the vetting process? Americans would be asked to vote for a ticket that has a foreign citizen candidate — precisely the type of candidate that the Founding Fathers were trying to preclude. What sense does that make? The whole purpose of Article 2 and the natural born citizen requirement is to ensure that the president and commander-in-chief have no foreign influence whatsoever.
