Today I discovered that the reason I could not find a section of the Nationalization Statues is because the section had been scrubbed. This is not an accident. The section removed had confirmed that the interpretation of the State Department based on the Constitution and relevant case law was that Naturalization did not convey natural born status for Constitutional purposes.
The Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM) and associated Handbooks (FAHs) are a single, comprehensive, and authoritative source for the Department’s organization structures, policies, and procedures that govern the operations of the State Department, the Foreign Service and, when applicable, other federal agencies. The FAM (generally policy) and the FAHs (generally procedures) together convey codified information to Department staff and contractors so they can carry out their responsibilities in accordance with statutory, executive and Department mandates.
ACQUISITION OF U.S. CITIZENSHIP BY BIRTH ABROAD TO U.S. CITIZEN PARENT (CT:CON-636; 02-24-2016) is being scrubbed…
The Original Document “7 FAM 1131.6-2 Eligibility for Presidency.” (Still live at Wikipedia)
Section 1 of Article Two of the United States Constitution requires that a candidate for President of the United States be a “natural-born citizen”.
According to the US Department of State Foreign Affairs Manual: “the fact that someone is a natural born citizen (citizen at birth) pursuant to a statute does not necessarily imply that he or she is such a citizen for Constitutional purposes.”
The Current Document
7 FAM 1131.6-2 Not Citizens by “Naturalization”
Section 201(g) NA and section 301g) INA (8 U.S.C. 1401(g)) (formerly 301(a)(7) INA) both specify that naturalization is “the conferring of nationality of a state upon a person after birth.” Accordingly, U.S. citizens who acquire U.S. citizenship at birth by birth abroad to a U.S. citizen parent(s) are not considered “naturalized” citizens under either act.

First of all, I am not a Constitutional Lawyer and I don’t play one on TV but since Sen, Ted Cruz announced he was running for President, I have listened to the radio talk jocks and they have talked around the Natural Born Citizen (NBC) issue. Mike Gallagher stated yesterday that Ted Cruz is a NBC because of the Nationality Act of 1940.
We Mike may talk a good game and remember, I am not a Constitutional Lawyer but I find no where in the Nationality Act of 1940 that says anything about a Natural Born Citizen. It does talk about American citizenship and naturalization but not Natural Born Citizens.
After the past 6 years of lies, cover-up, corruption and tyranny from 0bama and his StormTroopers, the ONLY ONE I trust is God.
Many conservative Americans are probably celebrating today and enjoying an “in your face, Democrats” honeymoon phase. At midnight last night, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) officially announced he will seek the office of the President of the United States. This makes it official and from comments perused on various articles across the internet media, people are taking out their checkbooks to contribute to his campaign.
Before delving any further, a few things need to be made clear. I am not a Democrat nor a Republican. I have no party affiliation. I am an equal opportunity criticizer and a constitutional conservative Christian. My allegiance resides with the Supreme Law of the Land – the Constitution of the united States of America. Regardless of how popular, conservative or constitutional supporting a candidate or elected official claims, they reap criticism when they choose to deviate from their publicly acclaimed stance for any reason.
The issue at hand remains the eligibility of Ted Cruz to run for President under the “natural born citizen” requirement. Yes, Ted Cruz has released his birth certificate indicating he was born in Canada to a US citizen mother. His father, however, was not a US citizen at the time of his birth. Interestingly, claims emerged suggesting Cruz could have dual citizenship – Canadian and US. Cruz stated he would renounce his Canadian citizenship assuming he had dual citizenship.

The scandal involving the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s birth certificate pales in comparison to the many scandals that have developed during his first and second terms as president.
President Obama released the long-form of his Hawaii birth certificate in 2011. However, despite this effort by the White House to put the birth certificate scandal to rest, doubts about his citizenship still linger.
Here are 10 quotes about Barack Obama’s citizenship scandal:
