You misunderstood my “simple” question: if a child born in the United States to two United States citizens, neither of whom is a dual citizen, and the child subsequently (presumably as an adult) acquires dual citizenship, would that person when they attained the age of 35 be eligible to run for President?
For the record, I’m not trying to argue that my son is not a natural born citizen. He was born a citizen, thus he’s a natural born citizen. My argument is that by complicating the question with whether or not his parents were citizens at the time of his birth, you accomplish very little in terms of protecting the Presidency against foreign allegiances and you sacrifice quite a bit in terms of maintaining a bright line rule that can withstand the left’s assault against the Constitution and national sovereignty.
That said, I do think that the 14th Amendment should not be interpreted to grant citizenship at birth to just anyone who is born here, as has been the interpretation. We know it doesn’t grant citizenship to the children of diplomats because they have not subjected themselves to our jurisdiction, I would say the same should apply to illegal aliens and/or probably temporary non-immigrant visa holders as well. That’s a tangent, but it impacts the question of who would be a “citizen at birth” so it’s relevant.
