To be eligible for the U.S. Presidency, the Constitution includes the requirement that the person be a "natural born citizen". There is no explicit definition of this term in …the Constitution. However, when the Constitution was written, an essential contemporary and consulted reference was the " Law of Nations " which states that "T he natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society can not exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. " This understanding of its definition has now morphed into many conflicting interpretations. However, no legal judgment has overridden the original intended meaning, so it is it is reasonable to conclude that "born to 2 U.S. citizens" is still a requirement. . Vattel's "The Law of Nations" was written in French. What was quoted above was from a flawed English translation first published over a decade after the Constitution was ratified in 1787. Thus, none of the Framers could possibly have been referring to it. The original French (the only version in existence at the time of the framing of the Constitution) does not define nor attempt to define "natural born citizen." It defines "natives or indigenous" citizens. Moreover, no law in effect states that for anyone born in the USA, that even one parent, let alone both , must be citizens. The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) Â§301 aka U.S. Code Title 8 Â§1401 defines "citizens at birth," which = "natural born citizens." Sub-Â§(a) thereof flatly states that anyone born in the USA, unless to parents who are not subject to U.S. jurisdiction (legally subject to U.S. law - that means foreign diplomats with diplomatic immunity ), are citizens at birth and thus natural born citizens. Even illegal aliens are subject to U.S. law and thus jurisdiction. INA Â§301 / USC Title 8 Â§1401 has a total of eight provisos or sub-Â§s, lettered (a) through (h). (a) applies to anyone born in the USA. The others apply to other circumstances. (g) would apply to someone like Barack Obama if he were born in Kenya as the Birthers erroneously believe. Even then , though, he would still qualify as a natural born citizen because (g) only requires that one parent be a citizen (it specifically states that the other parent is an alien [other provisos apply to overseas births when both parents are U.S. citizens]!), and have either lived in the USA or served overseas in U.S. armed forces or a recognized international organization such as the Red Cross, for a specified time. Proviso (f) is also of interest. . re: Chuck W777 wrote: "No, this has never been a requirement."
