Re: Obama followers needed to march in Atlanta this Thursday.......

Is there something unique about this one?  There have been a number of them.

Did you see the judge's name?  I think we need to check his nationality to see if he is a citizen.  What a supreme waste of time and money.

How is the guy harmed by this?  That is what he has to show to have "standing".

Ha!

The dream lives on - do you have any clue why the cases were dismissed due to lack of standing? No, don't answer that, please.

Re: Obama followers needed to march in Atlanta this Thursday.......

In reading the comments under the article I came across a new slant on this topic or at least one that I had not heard yet.

 

Not to mention Obama even if he was born in the US his mother at the time was a minor so his nationality fell under his fathers nationality at the time Kenya was under British rule and there is no duel nationality with the US and Britain, Barry, AKA Obama, was lawfully adopted by a foreign national, Lolo Soetoro. Barry Soetoro was also made an official legal Indonesian citizen

Re: Standing

Was Obama on the GA ballot in 2008?

Biological or Adopted Children Residing in the United States

 

A child automatically becomes a U.S. citizen when all of the following conditions have been met under section 320 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), as amended by the Child Citizenship Act (CCA):

  • At least one parent of the child is a U.S. citizen, whether by birth or naturalization.
  • The child is under the age of 18 years.
  • The child is residing in the United States in the legal and physical custody of the U.S. citizen parent based on a lawful admission for permanent residence.
  • An adopted child may automatically become a citizen under section 320 of the INA if the child satisfies the requirements applicable to adopted children under sections 101(b)(1)(E), (F) or (G) of the INA.

To qualify as a “child” for purposes of section 320 of the INA, the individual must be unmarried.  Also, a person who was born out of wedlock (meaning that the parents were not married at the time of the person’s birth), must be “legitimated” while under the age of 16 and while in the legal custody of the legitimating parent. See section 101(c)(1) of the INA.  Finally, a stepchild who has not been adopted does not qualify as a child under this section.

A person who satisfies the requirements of section 320 of the INA before turning 18 automatically obtains citizenship without having to file an application.  However, in order to obtain a certificate of citizenship from USCIS, an individual must file Form N-600, Application for Certificate of Citizenship. To obtain a U.S. Passport, visit the Department of State's Apply for a U.S. Passportwebpage.

Individuals who were age 18 or older on February 27, 2001, do not qualify for citizenship under section 320 of the INA as amended by the CCA.  A person who was over the age of 18 on February 27, 2001, may, however, be a citizen under the law in effect prior to the enactment of the CCA. If you believe this may apply to you, please visit our Contact Us page to call our National Customer Service Center.

 

Plus, Indonesia does allow dual citizenship and if the person does not declare Indonesian citizenship upon turning 21, they automatically lose that Indonesian citizenship.  Obama was living in the US when he became 21.
