NO, not in 1961. Google it and you get the answer. The law changed on 1984.
His mom had to be living in the US six years prior to her 21st birthday. She was Indonesia.
Actually, even if he was born in Kenya, he’s still a US citizen. The red herring is, everyone is looking at the law which states that the mother must have been a citizen for at least 5 years after her 16th birthday (impossible since she was only 18)— but that is for American WIVES of foreign husbands. Barack Obama Sr. was already married in Kenya when he met Barry’s mom. Since he was neither widowed nor divorce and because bigamy is illegal in the United States, any marriage ceremony between the senator’s parents was invalid.
The law at that time was the child of an UNMARRIED American mother was automatically a natural born citizen if mom was a US citizen who’d lived on American soil for at least one year. So regardless of where Senator Obama was born, since he’s certainly a bastard, he’s certainly eligible for the presidency.
8 USC 1409 (c) Notwithstanding the provision of subsection (a) of this section, a person born, after December 23, 1952, outside the United States and out of wedlock shall be held to have acquired at birth the nationality status of his mother, if the mother had the nationality of the United States at the time of such persons birth, and if the mother had previously been physically present in the United States or one of its outlying possessions for a continuous period of one year.
