CENTRALIA, WA - Imagine living in this country for nearly a 100 years only to learn you're not a citizen.
It happened to a 95-year-old military veteran in Washington named Leeland Davidson.
Davidson knew he was born in Canada in 1916, but figured because his parents were American, he was automatically a U.S. citizen.
He was able to join the Navy and served in World War II, but when Davidson recently went to get the driver's license he needed to go to Canada to visit relatives, he learned otherwise.

Unlike Obama, this guy didn’t know.
Wait a minute.....are they saying that if two people are married and US citizens and are expecting a baby....if they travel to another country and the baby is born.....that baby is not a US citizen?
Let me get this straight:
...A man born to TWO American citizens born abroad is NOT an American Citizen, but kid “popped out” the moment his foreign mom crosses the border is?
...and a man who was born to an American woman and a Kenyan father, with a not insignificant probability of being in Kenya at that time, is *also* a Citizen.
Win The Future!!
If he has the letter that should be good enough.
God bless him. He was a citizen when it really counted.
EXACTLY what it sounds like they are saying.
I think it’s probably a technicality. Obviously, the US government does not know if two Americans have a child abroad unless the parents complete some sort of application or affidavit. My guess is the parents didn’t do that. So, he’s technically not a citizen, but he shouldn’t have a problem becoming one by simply filing the necessary paperwork.
John McCain was born in Panama--his parents were US citizens. If he isn't a citizen, do we have to have a do-over of the 2008 election with an eligible nominee?
I think Obama is about to “find out” the same thing...
Back when New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey was on the verge of being indicted for various crimes I predicted that his way out of the mess would be to stop denying all of the swirling rumors over his sexual orientation, because the resulting cultural panic would make people completely forget about the bribery and corruption.
McGreevey did my prediction one better by announcing at a press conference that His truth was that he was a Gay American. Brilliant! The man never served a day in jail.
I gotta suspect that people are thinking along similar lines in the Obama White House right now. Things are just going to keep on getting worse, because Obama has dug a hole from which there is no digging out. Libya is the cherry on top of the sh!t sundae of his own creation. So, what is a President to do?
Simple. Stop denying the Birther rumors. Admit that you are not a native-born citizen. The resulting Constitutional crisis would make everybody completely forget about everything else. Obama can be hounded out of office with his head held high and the idiots on the Left can talk for another fifty years about how great a President he might have been...
My prediction is that somewhere in the basement of the White House, people are trying to concoct an innocent explaination of how Obama could run for President without realizing that he is Constitutionally ineligible. Im guessing that Momma is about to go under the bus. Of course, her deception would have come out of a mothers earnest desire for her child to have a better life as an American citizen, so maybe she doesnt have to go under the bus at all.
Congratulations, pro-Amnesty crowd!
After six or seven years of scouring Lexis-Nexis results you finally came up with this poor fellow to serve as the Poster Child for your cause.
Panama Canal Zone was U.S. Territory at the time........................
Wasn’t Pres. Bush granting citizenship to legal and illegals alike who served in the military?
What are they waiting for? Get this done, he’s already served.
This man is more of a U.S. citizen than many current U.S. citizens.
Should be "...legal and illegal ALIENS..."
Sorry, I misread the line. I thought it said the Attorney General. You are correct.
My son and my daughter were both born in Germany about 6 years apart in the same US Army hospital which made it US territory. We had to travel to the US Consulate in Munich to get their US Birth certificate
Someone is playing with this guy.
Had this brave man just came across the border illegally, no one could ask him his status as an American, one hundred lawyers would be lining up right now to defend him, and public assistance would be provided to assist him while he is in this country illegally!
Wait for it . . . . wait for it . . . the first ad by the Obama administration declaring this brave veteran's predicament is because the republicans refuse to fix the immigration problem and allow all the illegals a path to citizenship!
wait for it . . . it is coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
