On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen” - On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen”

On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen” - On the Meaning of “Natural Born Citizen”

The confusion or dispute is whether someone like Kruz, born of an American mother in Canada is just an American citizen or a Natural Born Citizen as required by the constitution.



"Both confirm that the original meaning of the phrase “natural born Citizen” includes persons born abroad who are citizens from birth based on the citizenship of a parent."



It seems the dispute will rage for awhile and be forgotten soon. If Kruz becomes the nominee it is good to get this out of the way now and not confuse the issue later on. In that regard Kruz owes Thump thanks for bringing it up now.
