I agree with punchamullah. I have not found one piece of evidence in the mountain of crap posted here and anywhere else including apuzzo and donofrio that prove the framers meant NBC = 2 citizen parents. It cannot be found. All I see are people's opinions and court dicta that goes both ways, but not one FACT that proves that the framers FORGOT to add the phrase "2 citizen parents" but MEANT to include it. It is not written therefore it does not exist. The context of the time (English common law) tells me the framers forgot nothing.
It is you people who believe in this non-existant phrase that are screwed up. The rest of us want proof. If there is proof then I will come aboard with pleasure,
If you truly believe a NBC should have citizen parents, and you have every right to that opinion, write your congressman and try to have him get it enacted into law. That's the only way it will be done - but then again the Supremes will strike it down, 9 to 0, won't they?
I have the overwhelming desire to point out the Supreme Court finding in Minor vs Haperset (SP) which sets or establishes precedent.
Ark is dicta that means it is nice to know but not a part of the finding.
Finding meaning a lawful definition
Precedent meaning an establishment of law
Minor gave a definition of natural born which was found to be a finding which established precedent and all of that set in concrete “born with both parents US citizens” as natural born.
