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.
Actually, it sounds like his bill doesn’t address the NBC issue; he is looking stop the “anchor baby” phenomenon by denying citizenship to people born on US soil whose parents are not legal residents. Having not studied the details of the bill, I am prepared to stand corrected.
You know if Jindal really loved and respected the Constitution he would flat out state that he is not a “natural born citizen” and not eligible for any future presidential or vice presidential office.
He has to know that he is not an NBC. A little help from a completely uniformed writer who needs to get a pocket copy of the Constitution from the Heritage Foundation.
He would. The Lamestream is really pulling to pick our candidate again.
I think he has proven himself as Gov., but not everyone can grow up to be President or a waitress at Hooters. Life isn’t fair.
Jindal cannot be president, he is a citizen, but not NB citizen.
His State of Louisiana BC looks OFFICIAL. I was born in AZ, but mine looks like this (minus the LA stuff).
LOL! You mean you didn’t take notes? Half the time I couldn’t read them but I took them anyway.
But seriously, I’m disgusted that our so-called leaders are ignoring the constitution. And the courts? Everyone wants to pass what they think is a hot potato.
>> “If half of Mexico comes across the border to have their anchor babies, Gov Jindals Natural-Born status is a non issue” <<
The constitution is the same for all, good or bad.
NBC issue aside, anyone notice how simple and clean this BC is? Just a nice, high res scan. How come it doesn’t have all the strange artifacts and other anomalies that Obama’s has?
Easy. Jindal did all that was necessary. He scanned it. BFD. It isn’t rocket science. And if Obama did a simple scan, his (phony as Pam Anderson’s breasts) BC wouldn’t look like it does.
Regardless of his BC or where he was born, Jindal is 10x more American than the Kenyan who occupies the Hussein Asylum and destroys our lives by the hour.
>> “he is looking stop the anchor baby phenomenon by denying citizenship to people born on US soil whose parents are not legal residents.” <<
The constitution already does that.
He was adopted by his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro, attended Occidental College as a foreign national named Barry Soetoro, and swore allegiance to Indonesia to get a passport in 1981 AS AN ADULT so he could travel to Pakistan with his boyfriend, Chandoo!
This has been exhaustively discussed along with documentation on Free Republic..
Sorry, but there's no way you learned that in High School Govt. It's never been true.
“But Jindal, knowing that his own status will certainly be examined in the event he ends up on a presidential ticket, released his own birth certificate Friday, and his parents — through Jindal spokesman Kyle Plotkin — this week offered fresh details of their immigration to the United States.”
...in the event he ends up on a presidential ticket, released his own birth certificate Friday...
I can’t tell if the author is putting words in Jindal’s mouth or Jindal really want to pull an Obama and crap on the Constitution.
He has already done that.
You’re not only wrong, you’re damned wrong!
Yes, he is. Although I don't really want him to be president. Poor communicator.
yes, the writer aiding and abetting Barry.
Is Rubio a NBC?
Does it? I always thought that the USA was one of the handful of countries (mine included) that grants birthright citizenship.
Maybe somebody told you that in “High School Govt.”, but there is nothing in US law to support your definition.
The big problem is that, in 2016, he’d be up against a Republican President going for re-election.
Oh but I did. We had discussions of whom could be President. There were some kids who were born in Germany, on the AFB, to US Citizens, and some who’s parents came here illegally. There’s a reason the framers didn’t want a citizen as President whose parents had another allegiance.
I’ll give you an example. The anchor babies that I have had experience with in teaching ESL. Mexico is the best, is what I usually heard. The students in TUSC (tucson school district, Hispanic) are being taught that this is “Mexico”. It needs to be taken back. (This is the curriculum).
Otherwise, why did the Constitution use the specific phrases. They aren’t interchangeable.
>> “Sorry, but there’s no way you learned that in High School Govt. It’s never been true.” <<
We all learned that in the 8th grade; it is actually required in all 50 states to teach that fact, along with the rest of the constitution. The law is just being ignored these days.
Yes, Natural Born had a well known and accepted definition at the time that the constution was written, requiring two citizen parents.
So sad that traitors like you wish to defaecate on the constitution.
Back in the late, late 70’s, I didn’t take many notes, but I listened. Usually if there was Homework or something really important, I wrote it on my hand, arm, or tennis shoes.
Lord let’s hope so. A Conservative in the WH.
Born on U.S. soil: Yes.
Born of two U.S. citizen parents: No.
Sorry Bobby. You’re not Natural Born. Not eligible for President.
Note the number of “anchor baby” comments following the original article.
Jindal couldn’t beat Obama IF 50% of blacks stayed home on election day . Unelectable .
