to renounce their US citizenship (if I understand the issue correctly). Therefore, Obama would have had to reapplied for US citizenship
afterward, which apparently he did NOT do. Im sure the SCOTUS will figure it out....
Bold Reply: Indonesian Citizenship rules have no bearing on any other citizenship status than Indonesia's. This means that you could legally be a
Natural Born U.S. Citizen, and live in Indonesia... I have no evidence, but know this is a fact as one of my childhood friends was a Missionary and
his family spent 7-9 months out of the year in Indonesia. The other 3 months they lived at their home in the U.s. (Right next door to me...) These
people were U.S. citizens, But I know for a fact this kid attended Indonesian schools.
The only way this was possible is that he and his family had both Indonesian and U.S. Citizenship.
Underlined Reply: "In Theory" and "if I understand the Issue" are strongly symbolistic that you do not "understand the Issue". No offense, of
It's really very simply. In fact, most nations have no forbearance or interest in where you hold another citizenship, so long as you are a citizen of
their country while you are there. France Requires you to be a single citizen... Yet you can EASILY get dual citizenship from the U.S. and France (as
long as you have a french job)
anywho... It's easily researched, I'd avoid listening to what others tell you, and investigate it on your own. you'd be surprised how simple it is
to prove these accusations false.
