Gov Jindal was born a Citizen of India. Also by being born in the USA he is a native-born U.S. Citizen. But Gov. Bobby Jindal is NOT a Natural-Born Citizen of the United States. His parents were not U.S. Citizens when he was born. He is not constitutionally eligible to be President or Vice President.
Gov. Bobby Jindal is a good, conservative Governor for the State of Louisiana. Unfortunately, similar to Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Jindal cannot be classified as a natural-born citizen, and thus he also is not constitutionally eligible to run for President. I know this is a sad thought for conservatives like myself, but if we wish to protect and uphold the Constitution, we must look to history for an explanation.
Jindal was born in Louisiana, as his recently released birth certificate attests (below). However, at the time of his birth, both of his parents were recent immigrants to the US from India. His mother was three months pregnant when she arrived in Louisiana. Thus, Jindal is simply a native-born citizen, not a constitutional Article II Section 1 “natural born Citizen” of the United States. Gov Bobby Jindal is a dual Citizen by birth gaining citizenship in India via his non-U.S. Citizen parents and gaining basic U.S. Citizen at Birth status via being born in the USA to people legally allowed to be here. The good news is that if Bobby Jindal’s wife was a citizen when their children were born in the US, then their children will have attained the status of natural born citizenship, which means they can one day run for President. Natural born Citizen is a legal term of art from Natural Law and the Laws of Nature and the Law of Nations. Natural born Citizens are the children of Citizens with said children born in the USA of two U.S. Citizens (who themselves both were either born Citizens or naturalized citizens at the time of birth of their child). Gov Bobby Jindal can serve as a terrific Governor of Louisiana, or a U.S. Senator from Louisiana, but he is not constitutionally eligible for the office of President and Commander of the Military, or the office of Vice President.

P.S. This is NOT about politics or anything else but the U.S. Constitution, the fundamental law of our land.
