    The ABC’s of Immigration: Citizenship Rules for People Born Outside the United States
    <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on"> All persons born in the United States are citizens of the United States (with the very minor exception of certain children of diplomatic personnel). This is perhaps the only simple rule of US citizenship. One of the most complicated areas of US citizenship law involves the passage of citizenship to children born outside the US to one or more US citizen parents. While naturalized US citizens are treated like natural born citizens, which includes those who are deemed citizens even when born outside the US, in almost every respect, there is one important office that only natural born citizens can hold – the presidency (though expect to see efforts in Congress to change this if Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger decides to run for President). Also, a person who is a citizen from birth cannot be denaturalized (though denaturalization rarely ever occurs).

    The rules determining when such children are citizens are extremely detailed, and vary a great deal depending on when the child was born since the laws changed several times in the 20<sup>th</sup> century.

    What are the rules for people born before May 24, 1934?
    Persons born abroad before May 24, 1934 to a US citizen father who had resided in the US at any point before the birth are considered US citizens at birth. The status of the mother did not matter unless the child was born out of wedlock. There were numerous legal challenges to this rule, claiming that it violates equal protection by treating the children born to US citizen women different than those born to US citizen men. The issue was never fully resolved by the courts, but in 1994, Congress passed a law retroactively granting citizenship at birth to children born abroad to US citizen women.

    In 1940, Congress passed a law making illegitimate children born abroad to US citizen women citizens if the mother had resided in the US. However, under this law, if the child was legitimated by the foreign national father before his or her eighteenth birthday, th

    Heres a good question. What if you are giving birth to a child by two foriegners outside of the us. The big if on the end is if the child was created through invitro using a US citizens sperm.
    Would they get citizenship?
    I mean technically the father is american.

    I THOUGH THIS QUESTION OF OBAMAS CITIZENSHIP HAD ALREADY BEEN HRU THE COURTS BUT, I GUESS I HAD MISINFORMTION. AT THIS POINT, EVEN IF HE ISN'T A LEGAL CITIZEN I DOUBT THE COURTS WOULD DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. TOO MUCH HAS GONE ON BUT IT WOULD STILL BE INTERESTING TO KNOW.

    You know what would really irritate the Democrats...?

    Bush should resign now.

    Then Dick Cheney becomes President (that would really irritate the liberals)!!!

    Then he appoints Condoleeza Rice as VP.

    Then Cheney resigns two weeks later and Condoleeza Rice, A Republican,
    Becomes the first BLACK President and the first WOMAN President !!!

    I respectfully request that our gracious, almighty, Barack O'Messiah Bama present the proof for once and all that he is a legitimate President in accordance with the God given Constitution that was provided to us by our Christian forefathers who bled dearly on the battlefield so that BHO..B.O. for short, could rise from an uneducated electorate that thinks this great country is a Democracy.

    I look forward to the next 4 years of being treated with love and respect by Barry O and his staff as well as the increase in my taxes and loss of wealth through his complete lack of economic and administrative experience.

    In the event Barry the Almighty fixer of all things futher attacks the constitution, especially some near and dear amendments, I reserve the right to no longer act respectful and loving. I just hope I don't break any of the 10 Commandments....oh yes, they don't count anymore in this country since we can't acknowledge that these were the legal basis on which our government was created.

    I think this is becoming peacful, respectful, Big Hug of Love Rant...Amen.

    Soli Deo Gloria
