On July 25th, 1787, John Jay wrote to George Washington,
then Presiding Officer of the Constitutional Convention:
"Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable
to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners
into the administration of our national Government;
and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American Army
shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen.
The Convention agreed and without debate the provision suggested by Jay
was written into the Constitution ... only to be ignored later.
Great post. Hard to imagine this illegal is about to be sworn in again, illegally.
