So then the Constitutional qualifications for the Presidency kept changing as Naturalization Law kept changing???

Nope. The Constitutional requirements have remained the same. Natural born citizen. Over 35. Fourteen years a resident in this country.

And as Congress was rewriting Naturalization Law all those different times, they were also amending the Constitution by those same laws???

No. Laws do not amend the Constitution. But the Constitution does not define natural-born citizen.

Is that what you are saying????

Not at all.
