It's Official: Ballot Challenge To Mitt Romney's Eligibility To Be President Filed In Illinois

Posted on 01/16/2012 11:21:39 AM PST by Obama Exposer

I knew this would happen and in a way, it is a good thing because it will also bring focus to Barack Obama's eligibility. Reading the paperwork on this I found out some things I wasn't aware of pertaining to our citizenship statutes back in the 1940's such as the statute listed in this challenge, U.S. Nationality Act of 1940 Sect 201, 54 Stat. 1137 which provides provides the law by which a person born outside the U.S. is bound by in order to qualify legally as a U.S. citizen. For some that do not know, according to Mexican law at the time when Mitts dad George was born in Chihuahua, he became a Mexican citizen. That citizenship was passed to Mitt at his birth in 1947 despite the fact he was born in Michigan. That means Mitt was born a dual citizen and a born dual citizen is not a Article 2 Section 1 natural born citizen eligible for the presidency as our founders intended. Reading the challenge, they bring out the SCOTUS case Minor v Happersett which is binding precedent defining a natural born citizen. They also cite The Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 289 (1814) as well as the case Shanks v. Dupont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830). It goes on to say:

Article 30. Mexican nationality is acquired by birth or by naturalization: A. Mexicans by birth are: I. Those born in the territory of the Republic, regardless of the nationality of their parents:

"By virtue of this law, in order for George Romney to have become a U.S. citizen he would have to be naturalized".

Well, it will be interesting how the media responds to this.

On one hand, they can't respond to it without looking like a bunch of hypocrites, considering they have carried so much water for Obama for so long.

OTOH, when has that ever stopped them?

This is precisely why they are pushing for Romney. He can’t criticize Obama on the same issues he himself is guilty of (citizenship, healthcare, cap and trade, etc)they are the same in too many ways for my liking.

Better to have this decided now. But I suspect that the guys who filed it figured that Chicago would be the right place because a Chicago court would be reluctant to find that Romney is not a natural born citizen. If he’s not, then that certainly doesn’t bode well for Obama’s eligibility.

1st & biggest problem this person has is they are quoting the WRONG law. The Mexican law at the time George Romney was born(1907 NOT 1940) stated that Mexican ‘born’ citizens were ONLY those who were ‘born’ to Mexican citizens aka Vattel law of nations definition applied when George Romney was born. So unless Mitt's grandfather renounced his US citizenship and became a Mexican citizen prior to little Georgey’s birth, George Romney NEVER attained to the status as a Mexican citizen. Thus Mitt is not eligible for president in Mexico, but he IS in the US.

It’s an interesting issue. On it’s face, it seems to me to be quite distinguishable from Obama’s situation. Mitt’s great grandparents were U.S. citizens who went to live in Mexico (polygamous Mormons), so it seems American citizenship is established at least as far as Mitt’s great grandparents. Regardless of what Mexican law says about their status, if the U.S. recognizes them as citizens, and since Romney was born in Detroit, I don’t see an issue. Obama’s father on the other hand was never an American citizen. He was either a British subject and/or a Kenyan national, so there’s no way he could confer ‘natural born citizenship’ to his son, regardless of where Barack was born...which has never been conclusively established.

All of the Mormons that settled in Mexico maintained their US citizenship. Mitt's father was born in Mexico, but to two US citizens..

Yes and it came up in the press. Devvy Kidd had a article about it 2 weeks ago. From her research she found this from the congressional record:

Mitt Romney’s, father George W. Romney, Not A Natural Born Citizen of the United States of America, and was NOT, eligible for the Office of President, by Pinckney G. McElwee of D.C. Bar.)

Congressional Record (House) June 14, 1967

“I find no proper legal or historical basis on which to conclude that a person born outside of the United States could ever be eligible to occupy the Office of the President of the United States. In other words, In my opinion, Mr. George Romney of Michigan Is Ineligible to become President of the United States because he was born In Mexico and is, therefore, not a natural-born citizen as required by the United States Constitution.”

http://www.scribd.com/doc/20829167/Natural-Born-Citizen-Congressional-Record-6-14-1967-p-15875-80

I am not sure that it matters what Mexican law says.

My suspicion is that the courts will ultimately find that “natural born citizen” simply means that you were a citizen from birth.

George Romney’s eligibility was never a serious issue back in 68. And I’ll guarantee you that the same will be true for Mitt.

Indeed it was.

Before the ‘68 primary season it was fairly controversial. Of course, the elites pooh-poohed it but some commentators brought it up.

It became a moot point once George Romney messed up by talking about “brainwashing” over Vietnam. He was out of the race soon thereafter.

"By virtue of this law, in order for George Romney to have become a U.S. citizen he would have to be naturalized".

This is not necessarily true, and if this reflects the caliber of their research, this case is going nowhere and poses a risk of tainting the Obama question too.

Both of George Romney's parents were US citizens, born in Utah. Thus Mitt Romney got his US citizenship from them at birth, and would have regardless of where in the world he was born, and had no need of US naturalization, any more than John McCain did.

Even the First Congress asserted that children born abroad to US Citizen parents are "natural born."

True, but you are using simple logic here. If logic conflicts with the worldview of your average libtard, then it is the logic which must be discarded. Not their worldview.

In said case, Mexican law would supersede American law if it helps achieve an outcome which they want. Got it?

And I agree with your last sentence. I’m sure Romney supporters will not like this but it is inevitable that this would happen. If Jindal or Rubio are picked in the future to be a V.P. on the GOP nominee’s ticket, I am sure that there will be challenges pertaining to their eligibility too.

US law at the time(1907) stated that children born to American citizens(Fathers) abroad ARE US citizens. Mexican law in 1907 stated that children born to aliens/foreigners in Mexico were aliens/foreigners as children follow the nationality of the father.

What's not to understand? I despise Mitt as much as many here on freepers, but to distort law to invent a fictitious controversy is to spit on the constitution and the faith of our founding fathers. PERIOD.

I can see most of the news channels reporting this story. Faux News will at first ignore it. If it gets any traction they will vellify it and call anyone that says it has merit, an anti-American Mitt Romney hater.

I never realized how liberal Faux News was, but their pimping for pro-abort, pro-homo marriage, anti-second amendment Willard The Liberal has really opened my eyes. I no longer watch their news channel. To me they are exactly like CNN, but much more like MSNBC. All these channels promote the liberal agenda.

Watch CSpan if youw want independent reporting and thought. You will not get it with Faux and the other liberal news channels. Rupert Murdoc, the billionare owner of Faux News, is a longtime democratic party supporter.

Yes it was, George was my Governor at the time (I was a college sophomore) but he bailed out of the 1968 campaign before reaching a critical point.

Claire McCaskill (D) brought up the resolution, and one could argue that it was to inoculate Obama from similar inquiries.

George Romney was recognized as a US Citizen from birth, and his son Willard was born in the US to two US Citizens.

Move on. Obama is NOT a US Citizen, but Mitt Romney is.

In general, I agree with you, although as I stated before, it doesn’t really matter what Mexican law says. What Mexican law says does not impact what the Constitution means.

At the same time, though, the “Natural Born Citizen” issue will invariably be a source of contention until the S.Ct. interprets it.

The problem is that there are really two concepts here, i.e. the question of whether you are a citizen, and the question of whether you are natural born. The argument over this typically is based upon a failure to separate those concepts.

The Constitutional history states that the purpose of the provision was to prevent a “foreign prince” from being President. They were concerned about a foreign nobleman moving to the US so that he could become the President. In fact, there was a movement by some at one time to recruit a Prussian prince to do just that. He turned them down, apparently thinking that it was not a very good opportunity.

The common understanding then was that you had to be born here. In reality, though, it’s a little more subtle than that. You just need to be an American from birth, in my opinion.

. For some that do not know, according to Mexican law at the time when Mitts dad George was born in Chihuahua, he became a Mexican citizen.

You joined FR just to post this crap?

Mexican law in place at the time of George Romney's birth had been tailored to prohibit the children of foreign nationals from attaining Mexican citizenship at the time of birth because of the American Mormon settlers. This is very well trodden ground even here at FR.

For a moment, let's accept the "Birther" definition of "natural born" and apply it to Mitt Romney. George Romney's parents were always U.S. citizens, nothing else, thus George Romney was always a U.S. citizen by birth. Since Mitt's parents were always and only citizens and he was born inside the United States, even by "Birther" theory, Mitt Romney is a "natural born" citizen.

This ridiculous "challenge" to Mitt's eligibility should be loudly and forcefully opposed. It is factually unsupportable.

For the question of whether or not George Romney was a US citizen at birth, it doesn't matter where George Romney was born since he was born to two US citizen parents. For the question of whether he is a "natural-born" citizen, some argue that it does matter where George Romney was born. But whether George Romney was a "natural born citizen" as opposed to a "citizen" has no bearing on whether Mitt Romney is.

Mitt Romney was born in the US to two US citizens, so any suggestion that he's not a natural-born citizen is absurd on its face.

So do you think if George Romney had became the nominee the Senate would have had to get a resolution like they did for McCain stating he is a natural born citizen?

This was entered into the Congressional record in 1967:

Congressional Record (House) June 14, 1967

“I find no proper legal or historical basis on which to conclude that a person born outside of the United States could ever be eligible to occupy the Office of the President of the United States. In other words, In my opinion, Mr. George Romney of Michigan Is Ineligible to become President of the United States because he was born In Mexico and is, therefore, not a natural-born citizen as required by the United States Constitution.”

Any Congressman can enter something into the Congressional record. It happens all the time during hearings. You’ll get some blowhard spouting off and then they’ll say something about entering material into the record. I’ve read stories about some Congressman entering massive amounts of stuff into the record after a speech they’ve made. It doesn’t prove anything except one person had an issue with George Romney’s NBC status.
