I agree with you, but a whole bunch of people around here don't. To them there are three classes of US citizens:
1. Natural-born citizen at birth.
2.Citizen at birth but not natural-born.
The criteria for #2 varies wildly between posters.
I've yet to see anything from US law or administrative decisions that would constitute proof category 2 exists. Those arguing for such a category usually fall back on quotes from an 18-century Swiss lawyer who was talking about civil law, not even the English common law on which the US legal system is based.
I was born of two British Subjects, here in the U.S., in 1958.
Can anyone point me to the statute or law that says I’m a “Natural-Born Citizen”?
I had “Dual-Citizenship”, at best.
