The U.S. Constitution sets the requirement that any person serving as President or Vice-President of the United States must be a “natural-born citizen,” but does not define the term. The 14th Amendment declares, “All persons born…in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens….” But is “born in the United States” the complete definition of “natural-born”? Not according to Title 8 U.S. Code § 1401, which lists several circumstances under which children born outside the United States are nevertheless “citizens of the United States at birth:”
Each of these conditions creates an opportunity for a person to establish birthright citizenship, provided the circumstances can be precisely documented. Mark Monaco can assist in gathering the crucial facts to make a compelling case for birthright citizenship.
