If someone is born a U.S. citizen, they cannot, under U.S. law, lose that citizenship other than by a voluntary renunciation after age 18. Indonesian law can say that he lost his U.S. citizenship, his father and mother could have renounced his citizenship for him, he would still be a U.S. citizen under U.S. law.
neither he nor his parents acting for him ever renounced his allegiance to the United States
The Ark court had no problem with accepting that someone who might be born a U.S. citizen can lose their citizenship because his parents renounced it for him. If we want to follow Ark for "guidance" on NBC, then we need to follow it here too, right??
