Is Kamala Harris eligible to be Joe Biden’s VP? | by Gary Wilmott | @AmericanThinker

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 more and join the conversation at:

My answer to the question posed in the headline — I say no. See this article by me for more details as to why she is not:

P.S. Also read the following essays regarding the presidential eligibility term “natural born Citizen” in Article II of the U.S. Constitution:

1.  A chart which lists and explains the five (5) Citizenship terms used in the U.S. Constitution.

2. Being a “born Citizen” or “Citizen at Birth” is not identically the same as a being a “natural born Citizen”.

3. The constitutional term “natural born Citizen” and basic logic, i.e., trees are plants but not all plants are trees. “Natural born Citizens” are a subset of “born Citizens (citizens at birth)”. Adjectives mean something.  All “natural born Citizens” are “born Citizens (citizens at birth) but not all “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” are “natural born Citizens”: 

4. A Euler Diagram which logically shows the kinds of U.S. Citizens and their set and subset relationships:

5. The “Three Legged Stool Test” for being a Natural Born Citizen:

  1. I say no. She was born to two foreign national non-U.S. Citizen parents. She was born a dual-Citizen of Jamaica and the United States, thus born with foreign allegiance and influence on her. Founders and framers like George Washington and John Jay did not anyone born with foreign influence on them to ever be the commander in chief of our military, thus the “natural born Citizen” clause was added via them to the presidential eligibility clause. To preclude foreign influence in John Jay’s letter to Washington. And per the 12th Amendment that restriction was extended to the VP. Kamala Harris is not a “natural born Citizen” of the United States, a person born with sole allegiance and unity of citizenship to the USA, and only the USA, a person born in the USA to two U.S. Citizen parents (naturalized or born a Citizen) at the time of their child’s birth in the USA.
