Natural (Native) Born Citizen: Solved

A citizen of the United States is no longer a citizen of the Union; that is, the United States of America, but now is a citizen of the United States (Fourteenth Amendment), that is, a citizen of the territories and possessions of the United States, including the District of Columbia as well as federal enclaves with the several States. [Footnote 5] As such one who is a citizen of the United States is one who is not born in the United States of America; that is, in an individual State of the Union. A citizen of a State, under Article IV, Section 2, Clause 1 of the Constitution, is still one who is still born in an individual State of the Union. [Footnote 6]

Thus, a citizen of the United States cannot become President of the United States of America, since he or she is not born in the United States of America; that is, in an individual State of the Union. Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 still applies to one who is a citizen of a State; that is, one who is born in an individual State of the Union.

The States are not separate and autonomous sovereign nations. Any one born in any State IS a Citizen of the USA. However, everyone born in any state is NOT a “Natural-Born American Citizen” depending on whether or not he/she meets the established definition of a Natural-Born American. If one is born in any state, of (2) foreign parents,one must be naturalized. If one of the Parents is foreign and one is not ,the child is a “dual” Citizen regardless of whether the mother or the Father is the foreigner. There are Statutory citizenships such as those which the fourteenth amendment address and there are the Constitutionally Defined statuses . The latter can only be changed by amending the Constitution while the previous are legislated by statute. The 14th amendment did not serve to amend the constitution to repeal the Natural Born American requirement to be President. It addressed a statutory question about Naturalization and not a Constitutional question about what a Natural Born American is


Indeed,it is the same Supreme Court Case,which the Author cites,that established just what a Natural Born American is,Minor v. Happersett,USSCt. That is “One born in a country of parentS {emphasis added}, (Parent with an “S”,means BOTH) who ARE citizens” themselves.

The founders wanted the President to be 100% American. They wanted a “Natural Born Citizen”. One with a foreign un –naturalized Mother or a foreign un-naturalized Father or even a Child whose Parents ARE BOTH Americans,yet he/she was born in a foreign nation is NOT a Natural Born American. John McCain fits into this category. McCain’s parents were both
American but he was born OUTSIDE the territorial limits of the USA (Colon,Panama,which was specifically EXCLUDED from the parameters of the Panama Canal Zone,BY TREATY and was NOT US Soil.


There is NO debate or controversy. The definition of A Natural Born Citizen has been established and has been for hundreds of years. It remains only for America’s malfeasant congress and judiciary to enforce it.
