1) NATURAL BORN CITIZEN – “As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent.” (The Natural Law as understood by the Founders in Article II of the US Constitution)
2) NATIVE BORN CITIZEN – All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. (The 14th Amendment definition for “citizen”)
3) NATURALIZED CITIZEN – the legal act or process by which a non-citizen in a country may acquire citizenship or nationality of that country. It may be done by a statute, without any effort on the part of the individual (aka anchor baby), or it may involve an application and approval by legal authorities, (such as a Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) form filed with the US State Department at the time of birth). (This includes “anchor baby” or “citizen at birth” born here or abroad, under the 14th)
4) UNDOCUMENTED – anyone who is not natural born, native born or otherwise naturalized as a legal citizen of the United States, also known in U.S. law as an “illegal alien.” (Individuals in the USA via a VISA, or visiting on vacation, or with other written cons
where were you when Oboma was running???....you know, the ururper with the father that was NEVER a US citizen.
Are you deliberately trying to be misleading? The courts have long held that #1 also applies to mothers. If either parent is a natural born citizen, having lived in the US for 5 or more years as an adult, their offspring is also an American citizen.
I believe the meaning is best described by the Framer of the 14th Amendment. Yes the amendment which defined naturalization. Would you call that person wrong? It is documented that John Bingham defined “Natural Born Citizen” as a child born on sovereign territory to 2 citizens. This excludes from eligibility both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
Want more proof – Alexander Hamilton defined the criteria for POTUS in the 1st draft of the constitution. He stated that POTUS had to be “born a citizen” of the US. Now that’s pretty clear right.
Well that language was changed to Natural Born Citizen on the prompt from a note from John Jay to George Washington.
The Term “Natural Born Citizen” is defined in the book “Law Of Nations” which was frequently used by the founders as a reference in the writing of the U.S. Constitution
now you can hem and haw all you want and point to other things. But to say it is clear and settled and that the Democrats will not sue a nomination of Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio is disingenuous and flys in the face of individuals who believe in the original intent of the constitution.
I will supply proof for anyone who has an open mind and is willing to examine the facts without getting absorbed by who they support for POTUS.

Where is Ted’s FS-240?

And where was the more reasonable and tolerant members of the ‘gay community’ standing up for the Giffords. No where to be found. And they wonder why people can’t stand and what nothing to do with them. They are fascistic, domineering sociopaths. unFuk them all. They are valueless to fabric of society.

When are Catholics going to stand up for what they say they believe in. What a pathetic bunch.
If you are really offend as you should be, you should be engaging in a financial jihad against everything ABC.
What a collection of rubes. Oh I just wont watch that show. That will have zero impact.
How bout you make it real. Demand the USCCB get involved and and admonish the faithful to shun EVERYTHING ABC.
That is all that will put an end to this stuff. Hit Disney where it hurts and the other offenders will take notice.
Who the hell is Rob Lowe? Why are we supposed to care?

Learn from this. This is how we deal with politicians from now on!

As a practicing Catholic myself, her need to justify her position solely on her being a ‘practicing Catholic’ makes me wonder just what type of ‘Catholicism ‘ she is practicing. Nothing I am familiar with.
Kaitlyn Schallhorn, you and The Blaze are capitulating and providing a favorable platform to this abomination.
The DNA will NEVER change therefor the GENDER will NEVER change. It is biologically impossible.
Fix reason firmly in her seat. I dare you to take this article to Glenn and see how he reacts to your pitiful reportage.
Yeah, I was a bit confused at first...poorly written article. He's not a "daughter," or a "she." Great comment Publius. I think some on the staff aren't representing what I believe is Glenn's vision for it.

Why don’t the vast majority of the parents and residents just say NO? NFW!
Why do they allow themselves to be shamed into capitulation?
Why are we expected to surrender our standards and the freaks get to set the agenda?
WAKE UP PEOPLE! Stop cowering to these bullies.

Glenn has it wrong. No one said they ‘support’ Trumps candidacy, they merely support his running. It’s good for the country to get ideas on the table. Trump can be a huge barometer for another winning candidate to consider issues leading to his attraction.
I think that’s how the country sees it. Nobody has to make that commitment at the polls anytime soon. There’s plenty of time to sort out the ideas & see who really has the stuff to make what Trump is saying really happen. Right now it’s just the summer of the Trump Reality Show competing with the Kardashians and Jersey Shore. But – if you really listen to Trump, he slides on all those great-sounding issues here & there. His Anthem is good – Make America Better & we can agree on the areas that need attention, but there are really candidates out there who aren’t narcissistic egomaniacs like Obama & Trump – who could & would do a better job. Being President isn’t like being a billionaire bully. There are rules & Congress & despite having a phone & a pen, you just can’t do what you want.I like his talk, but I don’t like him & I don’t trust him. I’m over him. I’m looking at others – I think the summer romance will fade. Carly looks just as smart & capable & seems more trustworthy and we won’t have to put up with his vulgarity & egomania.

Get a grip. we are losing our religion(s) because we willingly refuse to practice in a public manner. Those who are elected only hear and see the deviants, not the religious in the conduct of daily life.

To hell with the whining minority. What is the moral imperative here?
