Thread Name: BS: McCain not born in US, legally??!?
Subject: RE: BS: McCain not born in US, legally??!?
Brane, the point was gotten long ago: the child of a US citizen born outside the borders of the United States is a "natural born" citizen, regardless of whether he or she is born in another sovereign nation, a territory of the US or on some other plot of ground occupied by the US under some kind of treaty. Come the day, a child of a US citizen born on Mars would be covered by the same rule.
