It is critical for U.S. citizens to understand the meaning of the Constitution's term "natural born citizen" when choosing a prospective Commander-in-Chief. The candidate must be free from all possibility of foreign loyalties through either his or her parentage or place of birth .
“Natural Born Citizen” (Born on US sovereign soil .To (Two CITIZEN PARENTS")
Written on Parchment from the Soil of our Nation..and,scribed by the Blood of our Founders and Patriots ,who gave us our Republic,and Constitution.
Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of U.S. Constitution as adopted 17 September 1787:
No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.
Our founders and framers gave us these words to protect us .for the sole purpose of preventing anyone born of foreign, dual or divided national allegiance from ever entering the Oval Office.
John Jay said in a letter to General George Washington, recommending that the framers should strengthen the Citizenship requirements for the office of the President.
Jay expressed fear of foreign influence and wanted to make sure the President and Commander In Chief owed his allegiance solely to the United States of America. He wanted another adjective added to the eligibility clause, i.e., ‘natural’. And that word ‘natural’ goes to the Citizenship status of one’s parents via natural law.
Upon receiving Jay’s letter, General Washington passed on the recommendation to the convention where it was adopted in the final draft.
