Dinner conversation tonight....looking for help settling an argument.... Friends' son born in Italy while his dad was working overseas for an American company, not for the American government.. Both father and mother are American citizens, born in the US. The dinner group was split as to whether or not the son is eligible to be President of the United States. One said he is not eligible because he wasn't born on American soil. The other said he was eligible because he was a citizen at birth, based on the fact that both parents are citizens.
The problem seems to lie in the definition of a natural born citizen, as specified in the Constitution.
