nobody has come up with a case ON POINT that says under ANY of the immigration law changes, the defenition of natural born is anything other than what it has been with “born in the USA”.

The constitutional notion has been defined by the law. (see John McCain’s situatin as a comparison)

The sad fact is it would require a change or law to change the definition which is not going to happen anytime soon. Until then this is going to remain an tin foil hat argument.

The fatuous notion that statutory law can “define” a phrase in the Constitution seems to persist despite the fact that there is not a shred of legal authority to support such a notion. The original intended meaning in the Constitution can only be changed by amendment to the Constitution. What matters is what the framers intended, not what Congress subsquently “defines.”
