If he was born prior to Hawaii becoming a state, was Hawaii a territory?
If so, his Mother was a citizen but not for five years after turning 16, she was 18 at his birth. And since his father was foreign and she was in a territory if that is was Hawaii was, he would be naturalized unlike McCain who had both parents as citizens even tho he was born in the Canal Zone.
I wonder, if those prior to statehood who were born in Hawaii were considered natural born or naturaized and were they naturalized en masse.
It might be that he feel between the cracks because his Mom was only 18.
Does anyone know if Hawaii was considered a territory and the date of statehood,,I will go google.
Statehood for Hawaii 1959
He was born in 1961, Hawaii was a state in 1959.
