Skip to comments.Some Questions for Kamala Harris About Eligibility | Opinion
Posted on 08/12/2020 5:36:12 PM PDT by Ben Dover
The fact that Senator Kamala Harris has just been named the vice presidential running mate for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has some questioning her eligibility for the position. The 12th Amendment provides that "no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States." And Article II of the Constitution specifies that "[n]o person except a natural born citizen...shall be eligible to the office of President." Her father was (and is) a Jamaican national, her mother was from India, and neither was a naturalized U.S. citizen at the time of Harris' birth in 1964. That, according to these commentators, makes her not a "natural born citizen"and therefore ineligible for the office of the president and, hence, ineligible for the office of the vice president.
"Nonsense," runs the counter-commentary....

She is not conceivably naturally an American when born with THREE nationalities.
The only way one is naturally a citizen is when one cannot be anything else.
THAT’S what the founders were requiring.
I have heard her called:
And that is just today.
OH, and Historical-American.
I am waiting for Hysterical-American.
In the Constitution
Article 1 Section 2 lists requirements to be a Representative. “...and been seven years a citizen of the United States...”
It lists the requirements to be a senator as “...and been nine years a citizen of the Unites States...”
Article II, Section 1 lists requirements to be president — “..no person except a natural born citizen...shall be eligible to the office of president...and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.”
It is obvious that a “citizen” is not necessarily a natural born citizen, and the Naturalization Act of 1790, passed by Congress, directly defines natural born as birth from citizen parents.
Harris is not natural born.
If Biden loses in November it's a moot question. If Trump loses then Pence needs to file suit questioning her eligibility since he's the only person with standing to sue. Get the Supreme Court to rule on the question once and for all.
Obama wasnt eligible
Trump isnt eligible
Both parents have to be born in America
It we left that behind
By the way I am Trumps biggest supporter
You left out: Ugly-America... and Nasty-American
I actually do not want the Roberts court deciding this.
Re-elect Trump and after 2 more appointments, maybe.
Kamala is eligible, Ted Cruz isn’t. White Man’s law just applies to white men.
Did your family own slaves
....Both parents have to be born in America....
I do believe you are incorrect.
What difference does it make? Obama was born in Canada to a Kenyan and a teen American too young in 1961 to confer her USA citizenship upon him. Not only was he born Canadian, he never even naturalized as American. The US Senate gave him a passport.
Pronounced CAWMAWLAW say it wrong and you are sexist and racist unless you are Jim Crowe Joe.
Trump was born here of citizen parents, he is a natural born citizen.
Obama is not.
Kamala is ineligible. The globalists want to change the Constitutional requirement that a president must be a natural born citizen by precedent, since they don’t have the support to do it by amendment.
panzerkamphwageneinz, Trump is eligible. Both parents don’t have to be born in the US for their child to be a natural born citizen. They both have to be US citizens at the time of the child’s birth on US soil. Donald Trump’s mother became a naturalized US citizen in 1942, four years before he was born.
Thank you for the support, you may have noticed I draw some flak.
Please keep posting this. Our citizens can’t afford to forget or overlook this.
Both of Trump's parents were citizens of the US when Trump was born. His father was born here and his mother became a citizen in 1942. DJT was born in 1946 in the US.
Trump is eligible for President as a Natural Born Citizen.
