Sorry, BirfoonBoy, the President was born a citizen in this country, a natural born citizen. A subject OF a foreign power per operation of foreign law does not make one "subject TO a foreign power."<quoted text>Correct! Obama was born a citizen of his father's country and owed allegiance, thereto!
All persons born in the US and not subject to any foreign power are citizens, thereof!
Our Constitution does not, nor has it ever recognized a dual-citizenship or allegiance.
A visiting alien maintains the same citizenship/allegiance as does an ambassador to their country of origin.
Obama has never been naturalized, not a citizen of the US.
No. A visiting alien can be prosecuted for treason, unlike a foreign ambassador. The visiting alien owes temporary allegiance to the host country.
"§ 439 Treason is a breach of allegiance, and it will be observed that the statute restrict the definition of the offense to persons owing allegiance to the United States.
This allegiance may be one of full citizenship, or one based upon the presence of an alien, and the commission of the treasonable act, within the territorial limits of the United States. In an earlier chapter it has been pointed out that an alien within the territorial limits of a State, whether domiciled or not, owes for the time being a qualified allegiance to that State.“ Westel Woodbury Willoughby, 3 The Constitutional Law of the United States, 834 (1910).
Yawn. The United States Constitution did not incorporate the Treaty of Westphalia.
The United States of America has always been a sovereign nation, and every sovereign nation determines who its citizens are.
“Nor can it be doubted that it is the inherent right of every independent nation to determine for itself, and according to its own constitution and laws, what classes of persons shall be entitled to its citizenship.” US v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649, 668 (1898).
Westphalia? What RU smoking?
