Technically, I think the President is supposed to be the child of two naturalized US citizens. I am not sure how it works if he is the child of only
one US citizen and the other parent is not married to her legally no matter the status of that unmarried parent.
The reason that it was supposed to be child of two natural born or naturalized US citizens is because they did not want a child of dual citizenship
becoming president. It was a question of not wanting a possible person of divided loyalties in the White House. You can see where that might be
problematic as the leader of a nation to owe possible allegiance to another nation.
I know I wouldn't necessarily want a child whose parents brought them illegally into the country who never fully assimilated and still holds his or
her native flag dearer than the stars and stripes, for example.
