A child born to two American citizens outside the U.S.A becomes a citizen of the country of birth.

I'm assuming you're asking if you can be President of the United States. The simple answer is, it depends. The father must have spent five years in the US after age 14 before you were born for you to be considered an American citizen. Things become more complicated if your parents weren't married. You'd have to prove paternity somehow.

That would depend on if the child is born in america

There is something wrong with this question. The question states that the wife is also an American Citizen by virtue of both marriage and an "anchor baby." Why would she be in the US on a 'tourist visa?' Other than that - - Immediately notify your local law enforcement agency of a parental kidnapping.

The custody issue would probably depend on the country in which it is tried and where the child resides. It is likely that the child will remain in the country he or she is living in.

US citizen. Mother was an American of Irish descent, and his father was from Kenya.

The child is an American citizen if the child was born on American soil. The child should be able to stay in the US with the father. Unless the mother takes the child with her. There could be a custody dispute between the mother and father, it should be what is best for the child.

Both and later the child can keep both citizenship's or just take one, but any child born to an American citizen is an American no matter where they are born. I would go to the embassy and get my child their passport papers.

obama father is kenyan and his european he was born in the Americas making him a American citizen

Yes, he does. His father was an American citizen serving military in Germany when he was born.

The parents have nothing to do with it. The person who wishes to run for President needs to have been born in the US or a US territory. To be qualified, one must be Born in the United States, regardless of parents' citizenship. Adding another opinion here. Article 2 Section 1 of the Constitution says that a person has to be a "natural born Citizen" to be eligible. It does not say that the person has to be born within the physical confines of the U.S. A child born to an American mother while out of the country is considered a natural born US citizen even if the father is not a US citizen. If a child is born abroad to a woman who is not an American citizen and if the father is a citizen then there is a process the father has to go through to prove he is the father and if he does that then the child will be considered a natural born citizen. There are even circumstances when a child born within the US is not considered a citizen. It is more complicated than just having to be born in the United States.
