New Discussion of “natural born Citizen”


by Sharon Rondeau

In regard to an article published at “Richard Viguerie’s Conservative HQ” on Monday, constitutional activist Robert Laity reported Wednesday that in response to his question to Viguerie as to why comments to the article were closed, Viguerie “OPENED it for discussion.”

The article by George Rasley, CHQ Editor is titled, “Kamala Harris Is An Anchor Baby, Not A ‘Natural Born Citizen’ Of The United States” and begins:

Regular readers of CHQ will recall the 2016 controversy over whether Senator Ted Cruz was a “natural born citizen” of the United States and thus eligible to be President or whether he was citizen not natural born, and thus, according to the Constitution’s Article 2, Section 1, not eligible to hold the office.

At the time we argued that Sen. Cruz was eligible and the notion that there were three types of citizenship – natural born, citizen not natural born and naturalized citizen – was not supported by either history or legal precedent.

However, since the Cruz controversy there has been a great deal of new scholarship and commentary regarding whether Democratic Senator Kamala Harris likewise meets the test that has caused us to reopen the discussion and invite CHQ readers to weigh-in.

Harris was born in Oakland, CA to parents who were not U.S. citizens.  According to research conducted by Gary Wilmott published here and at American Thinker, Harris was born a Jamaican citizen in keeping with the Jamaican constitution and is also eligible for “preferential status with the country of India” as a result of her mother’s origins and ancestry.

As noted Wednesday night on Mike Volin’s “WOBC” radio program by several guests well-read in the “eligibility” issue, the mainstream media is making a concerted effort to quash any discussion of Harris’s eligibility to the vice-presidency or presidency, labeling questioners “racists” and “birthers.”

“I asked him about why comments weren’t open on that article and he OPENED it for discussion,” Laity told The Post & Email. “I think this issue may be the straw that broke the camels back. People are finally understanding what an NBC really is.”
