Is Kamala Harris a natural born citizen?
It is no secret that Harris wants to be Joe Biden's vice president. The junior senator from California clearly sees an opening to her real objective: the presidency of the United States. With Biden surprisingly outlasting the other anti-American socialist candidates, Harris recognizes that Biden's age and declining cognitive abilities pose a glorious opportunity to resurrect her presidential ambitions. After all, there is an good chance that the bumbling, incoherent Biden might have to resign or be removed in his first term and his V.P. would succeed him. Even if Biden managed to miraculously finish his first term, it is unlikely that he would or could run for a second.
Harris would love to "back door" her way into the presidency, especially given the fact that her vacuous campaign was an unmitigated disaster, and any future presidential ambitions looked to be a virtual impossibility only a few months ago.
But not so fast. Harris is constitutionally ineligible to be VPOTUS (12th Amendment) or POTUS (Article 2). She is not nor can she ever be a natural born citizen, the highest standard of citizenship mandated by the Constitution for the president and commander-in-chief. The Founding Fathers wanted a higher standard of citizenship for the POTUS because they did not want any competing allegiances with foreign governments.
Harris was born in Oakland, California on October 20, 1964, to an Indian citizen mother and a Jamaican citizen father. Thus, Harris is a native-born American citizen, or a citizen pursuant to what I refer to as the anchor baby provision of the 14th Amendment. ... continue reading at: https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/08/is_kamala_harris_eligible_to_be_joe_bidens_vp.html

Has it ever been a proven fact that Obama was eligible to be President???
Does she still have 3 nationality citizenship?
Both of her parents would have needed to be citizens at the moment of her birth.
No, Pelosi as Speaker must sign off on Candidate and probably would sign off on Putin if she thought he would carry the water for the DNC. I think Harris was born in Jamacia.............
Give a Democrat a chance to piss on the Constitution and they’ll never pass it up.
She would be in line for the presidency. Therefore she is ineligible due to holding dual citizenship. She is not a natural born citizen. Plus her voice may be more grating than Hillarys, if that were possible.
No, she is not. Will that matter to the dhims? No it will not.
Depends on which Kamala Harris we are talking about
If it’s this one, then the answer is yes
If it’s that twit in California who slept her way into public office, the answer is no
We just got rid of an illegal alien with a phony social security number, phony selective service number, probably a phony degree and professiorship (since no one has ever admitting to have been in any of his classes), etc. And he’s married to a man.
I don’t think Kamanawana has any wheres near that kind of criminal background.
Constitution? The hell with it.
There are only two categories of citizens, natural born or naturalized.
Good luck with that on here.
In each of two Supreme Court cases — Inglis v. Trustees (1830) and Elk v. Wilkins (1884) — the plaintiff was born in the United States, of a father owing
allegiance to a sovereignty other than the United States. In each case, the Supreme Court determined that the plaintiff did not acquire U.S. citizenship at
birth: his nationality at the time of his birth was that of his father, not his place of birth [
The debate over where Obama was born was just a smokescreen. The he fact of the matter is, he couldve been born in Time square and it would not have changed his natural born status. His father was not a citizen at the time of his birth.
I think Harris was born in Jamacia.............
Apparently born in Oakland. However, she did not have two US citizen parents. She is clearly not eligible.
I remember him. Since he is now in the Great Cage Match in the sky, he can still vote Democrat, but I dont think he can run for office. Wouldnt be much good on the campaign trail.
So it doesn’t matter what the Constitution says anymore...
Harris can be VP and/or President...
That is not what I am saying at all. Due to Obama’s fathers citizenship at Obama’s birth, Obama could never be a natural born citizen. Neither can Harris.
The birther thing was a smokescreen to draw attention away from the fact that his father was not an American citizen. This is what really mattered for NBC status, and they swept it under the rug.
Like I said, Obama could’ve been born in Times square, in front of a live TV audience, and it would not have changed his NBC status. He is not, and can never be, a natural born citizen.
Of the two cases you raise, I am of the opinion that Elk v Wilkins is the stronger of the two as the 14th amendment was ratified time wise between the two.
The Constitution specificly enumerates Congress with total authority over all the rules of natrualization. That includes who is a citizen at birth and who needs to be naturalized. I do not know the naturalization laws at the time of Harris birth, but based on my prior research, I believe that congress established that a person born in the US was a citzen at birth and would be a natural born citizen.
