Is Kamala Harris a natural born citizen?

Harris is constitutionally ineligible to be VPOTUS (12th Amendment) or POTUS (Article 2). She is not — nor can she ever be — a natural born citizen...

Harris was born in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964, to an Indian citizen mother and a Jamaican citizen father. Thus, Harris is a native-born American citizen, or a citizen pursuant to what I refer to as the anchor baby provision of the 14th Amendment.

Harris may be a native-born American citizen by the accident of her birth and in my opinion an erroneous 14th Amendment interpretation, but she is also a citizen of Jamaica.

Under Chapter 2 of the Constitution of Jamaica, a person born in Jamaica after August 5, 1962, or born outside Jamaica after that date to a parent who is a Jamaican citizen, is automatically considered a Jamaican citizen at birth. Furthermore, under current Jamaican legislation, citizens of Jamaica can hold multiple nationalities. And this status does not prohibit serving in the legislature of Jamaica!

Harris was born Oct. 20, 1964, and her father was a citizen of Jamaica at the time of her birth. Therefore, the law of Jamaica is clear: Kamala Harris is a citizen of Jamaica, pursuant to Section 3Cb of the Constitution of Jamaica.

And what about citizenship of India? Harris's mother was a citizen of India and, to the best of my knowledge, never actually became an American citizen.

She was an anchor baby. The question is, can an anchor baby be president?

No. Neither parent was a citizen when she was born. But give the Left an opportunity to crap on the Constitution and they’ll never pass up the chance.

But this constitutional provision only applies to Republicans, somewhere in the fine print, Democrats are exempted. (It must be there because Obama was president).

No, but Republicans want to run their own ineligibles so they will not contest Harris any more than they contested Obama.

Jindal, Rubio, Cruz, Haley and George P. Bush are the reasons.

Barack Obama’s presidency broke this mold, and it will never again be brought to bear unless a non-NBC Republican runs for office. Let’s be real though: if Biden wins in November, no Republican will ever again be president. The Democrats will make certain of that.

Obama was an usurper, nothing more.

Just because Congress failed in their duty does not make him legitimate.

Is Kamala Harris eligible to be Joe Biden's VP?

Yes.

Mark my words, Kamala Harris will face exactly ZERO serious challenges to her eligibility, the debate of which exists nowhere outside a handful of insignificant bloggers and websites pushing the issue. President Trump certainly isn't going to challenge it.

This being said, I'm looking forward to reuniting with all my old birther friends from 2009. Orly Taitz, Leo Donofrio, Lucas "Inspector" Smith...

Not worth the arguement. She's a system under the 14th. The provision subject to the jurisdiction thereof generally only government employees, in this case Jamaica and India, don't get birthright citizenship. Enough issues to address without going here.

That said, my guess the founders would have said no, they did distinguish natural born citizen from citizen based on concerns of loyalty.

Nobody cares.

The “Constitution” is dead and irrelevant.

Now, we’re just making it up as we go along.

The Elites want Harris and the Elites got Harris.

That’s all there is to it.

“Democracy” and “voting” and the “Constition” are shams.

Well if Trump tweets something about this, it will become big news.

Any “colorful” person on a RAT ticket is Teflon. Obama started that.

Kudos for daring to include Cruz on that list.
