There would be NO REASON for this thread to exist if Obama would just be honest and tell the American people what they want to know about his birth place.

Child Citizenship Act Program Update
Frequently Asked Questions about the CCA
1) Does my child qualify for automatic citizenship under the CCA?
Under CCA, your child will automatically acquire U.S. citizenship on the date that all of the following requirements are satisfied:
* At least one adoptive parent is a U.S. citizen,
* The child is under 18 years of age,
* If the child is adopted, a full and final adoption of the child, and
* The child is admitted to the United States as an immigrant

I was under the impression that a child's citizenship is determined by the parents. For example, if my husband and I moved to England and became citizens of England, our children would also have citizenship in England. If we moved to France and became citizens, our children would be citizens of France. If I am correct, which I'm not sure about but I'm sure someone will tell me if I am not, then if Obama's mother moved and became a citizen of Indonesia and his step-father adopted him or whatever was done for him to go to school in Indonesia then his citizenship would follow that of his parents, or parent in this case. It seems to me that there would have to have been some sort of paperwork to show at the time he was a citizen of Indonesia for that to show up on his school records from there.
Again, this is based on my impression that a child's citizenship follows that of the parents. If I am wrong, please correct me.
