In light of the current controversy regarding Barack Obama's natural born citizenship status, I request a law be passed that requires any person who is going to run for the President of the United States to present a valid birth certificate and prove that he/she is a natural born citizen as stipulated in Article II of the US Constitution as a matter of public record. In addition, to protect the security of this nation he/she must pass a security clearance before entering the race.
There is precedence from a case in 1866 United States vs. Rhodes Case No. 16,151 that a natural born citizen is defined as someone who is born on US soil and both parents must be US citizens. Otherwise the child would have dual citizenship and would be subject to a foreign power.
United States vs. Rhodes Case No. 16,151:
“That all persons born in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States; and such citizens, of every race and color, without regard to any previous condition of slavery,”
Explanation from John C. Eastman, Ph.D:
"The “subject to the jurisdiction” provision must therefore require something in addition to mere birth on U.S. soil. The language of the 1866 Civil Rights Act, from which the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment was derived, provides the key to its meaning. The 1866 Act provides: “All persons born in the United States, and not subject to any foreign power, excluding Indians not taxed, are hereby declared to be citizens of the United States.” As this formulation makes clear, any child born on U.S. soil to parents who were temporary visitors to this country and who, as a result of the foreign citizenship of the child’s parents, remained a citizen or subject of the parents’ home country was not entitled to claim the birthright citizenship provided by the 1866 Act."
If the Supreme Court fails to rule according to the US Constitution, a precedent will be set that a person subject to foreign power could be President.
I ask that this law be passed in order to protect this great nation from another person who is subject to a foreign power trying to undermine the Constitution to become President of the United States.
