Gov. Bobby Jindal arrived in the United States in utero, his mother about three months pregnant. jindal-birth-certificate.jpgView full sizeGov. Bobby Jindal's birth certificate
As he wrote last year in his book, "Leadership and Crisis," his mother had been offered a scholarship in 1970 to complete a graduate degree in nuclear physics at LSU.
When she informed the university that she couldn't accept the scholarship because she was pregnant, "LSU wrote back and promised her a month off for childbirth if she changed her mind. LSU was so accommodating, and the opportunity to come to America so thrilling, that my parents accepted.
"So, my parents stepped out on faith, secured green cards, packed up a few suitcases, said their goodbyes, and took off for this exotic new place called Baton Rouge, Louisiana."

Bobby Jindal is a True Leader; a natural born leader. If he wasn’t so busy in LA, he’d be my first choice for President of the United States. I sure hope he is ......one day.
Lord this is embarrassing (my misspeak). They had green cards. But, as I learned in High School Govt., Natural Born meant two US citizen parents and a birth on US soil.
He looks like a good candidate, but there is that Citizen parents thing.
Barry has now set the precedent.
Sorry Bobby you’re not a Natural Born Citizen either.
That’s what I’m thinking. Now I need another chaser of Apple-Cider Vinegar.
There it is. Vitter is wanting to change the laws instead of abiding by them. Sorry, Vitter, but Jindal was not, is not, and never will be a NBC by the laws set out by the founding fathers in the Constitution.
“They arrived Feb 1, 1971, and a bit over six months later, on June 10, 1971, Piyush Jindal was born at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, a natural-born U.S. citizen, who like every other child born in America, could, constitutionally, grow up to be president.”
The author is completely out of line here. Neither of his parents were American citizens.
He’s not natural born.
Didn't he once say he wasn't a NBC?
I agree. The Founding Fathers drew their Natural Born vs plain ole citizen distinction from Vattel.
Too bad. Let’s hope he ends up in Sarah’s Cabinet.
If half of Mexico comes across the border to have their anchor babies, Gov Jindal’s Natural-Born status is a non issue
Same here, machogirl. This has to be settled. Dang, I wish I’d kept my notes from govt. class.
Now I need another chaser of that nasty Apple Cider Vinegar. ;)
haha, what notes from Govt. class? lol
I really liked Jindal but this is utterly disappointing that he thinks this gimmick will redefine what natural born means. That is just spitting on our constitution.
Jindal, you lost my respect today.
Natural born is and has always been someone who is born on US soil to two US citizens (who were citizens at the time of birth).
Mr. Jindal that does not include you. You are naturalized, an anchor baby. No way are anchor babies natural born citizens.
That would be great or just as Gov. of Louisiana.
