Obama by his own admission reports his father was a Kenyan student who came to study in the U.S. but never was a U.S. citizen. The senior Obama already was married in Kenya before he met and married Obama Jr.’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham.


So since Obamas mother married a all ready married man the marriage was not legal in the eyes of any US court. SO why is this being overlooked?

Yeah yeah i already hear the ,But that racist post coming,or you just hate him cause hes black. Nope just making a observation that someone else posted. the link FOllows.

Was his mom an American citizen?

If so then I'm going with yes.

There is no requirement that the parents of a child born in the US be legally married in order for that child to be a citizen.

I heard it was a law when I was younger in school you had to be an American citizen to be president. Later on I heard it wasn't actually a law yet. So I am not sure. I am still confused on this topic

He was born in the U.S.

Therefore, he's a U.S. citizen.

It is the law and has been for quite some time.

AHH ok thanks phage. I just wish he didnt have 2 certificates then this situation would not be a problem. I remember seeing he had one that was made in kenya too. So its hard to tell whats true and whats not.

I've heard stories about people trying to induce labor and give birth at the US border crossing with Mexico.

Old but I believe it still happens...

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.

I was definitely too quick to answer there. He'd have birthright citizenship, obviously.

You don't have to be born in the US, only on US soil. So it's valid if you are born on a US military base or embassy ground.

O this is what i was actually confused about


Conventional wisdom holds that candidates for president must be born on U.S. soil to serve in the highest office in the land. That belief, however, appears to be a misinterpretation

Don't believe everything you see on the internet. Especially if it comes from Orly Taitz.

He could be native born (in the U.S.A.) but not naturally born (both parents being American citizens). Naturally born is a requirement for becoming the president of the United States. The thought was that a parent that was not a citizen would compromise the family's loyalty to the U.S.

ETA: Just like ketsuko stated in his post.

The President's mother was an American Citizen so...case closed? That's all we need, right?

From what i understand your correct. That still doesn't explain the reasons for fake birth certificates that followed. What could be the reason?
