Sorry, but there's no way you learned that in High School Govt. It's never been true.
You’re not only wrong, you’re damned wrong!
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.

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.
It may not be “true” according to you, but they taught me the same thing. Those darned old textbooks and teachers from the 60s. They had all this untrue stuff they copied from old documents like the constitution. And they had all those bogus stories about people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, and Abraham Lincoln. What a bunch of Huey... thank goodness the books they have been writing since I was in school have all the good stuff about our forefathers being nasty to Indians, black people and women, along with stories about heros like Karl Marx, Lenin and Stalin.
