Is Kamala Harris Eligible to be President? | Junior CA Senator May Run In 2020 | by Sharon Rondeau | @ ThePostEmail.com
(Aug. 19, 2018) — Given that California Sen. Kamala Harris’s Wikipedia biography states that she was born in Oakland, CA in 1964 to immigrant parents and speculation exists that she plans to run for president in 2020, Golden State citizen Gary Wilmott has been seeking information as to her citizenship status and whether or not she meets the constitutional requirement of “natural born Citizen.”
The Wikipedia entry states that Harris’s mother, Dr. Shyamala G. Harris, was from India, arriving in Berkeley, CA in 1960.
Dr. Harris passed away in February 2009. Her “Legacy” obituary states that she arrived alone in the U.S. at the age of 19 after having earned her undergraduate degree from Delhi University.
Kamala’s father, Donald Harris, is a retired Stanford University economics professor whose biography affirms that he arrived in the U.S. in 1961 as an “Issa Scholar” from Jamaica. It adds that he was born in Jamaica and naturalized in the U.S. but does not provide the year.
Neither parent reportedly was present in the U.S. as a legal resident for five years prior to Harris’s birth, a requirement to apply for naturalization, Wilmott observed in an interview with The Post & Email on Thursday.
After her parents divorced when she was seven, Wikipedia reports, Harris’s mother was granted full custody of her two daughters, after which they moved to Quebec, Canada. Dr. Harris’s obituary, reposted at SFGate on March 22, 2009, states that her medical research took her to McGill University in Montreal for 16 years. … continue reading at: https://www.thepostemail.com/2018/08/19/is-kamala-harris-eligible-to-be-president/

My immediate first reaction comment re the above article: No, Kamala Harris is not eligible. Per the report above, Senator Kamala Harris talks in her bio how she was born in and grew up in CA. But, she did not grow up there during her formative years! She is engaging in clever wordsmith-ing deception about her early life narrative. She is avoiding any focus on how much of her early life was spent living in Canada. She is also avoiding transparency about her parents citizenship status when Kamala was born. Kamala actually spent all her formative years in Canada with her foreign born mother when her mother moved there when Kamala was age 7. She graduated from high school in Canada. Kamala Harris is definitely not a person the founders and framers envisioned as being eligible to be President and Commander-in-Chief of our military, that is a future person after the founding generation was gone who is free from any foreign influences at and by birth, i.e., a person born with sole allegiance and unity of citizenship to the USA and only the USA. She was born with lots of foreign influence and allegiance claims on her via her two foreign national, non-U.S. Citizen parents when she was born and spending all her formative years in a foreign country. Likewise she is not eligible to be the Vice President per the last sentence of the 12th Amendment to our U.S. Constitution. She is NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States. She fails the Three Legged Stool Test.
U.S. Senator Kamala Harris is NOT a ‘natural born Citizen” of the United States to constitutional standards since both of her parents were foreign nationals who were NOT U.S. citizens when Senator Harris was born in the USA. She is missing two legs of the three legs of the ‘natural born Citizen’ test. She is of course a basic “Citizen” at birth per the Wong Kim Ark legal decision by the U.S. Supreme Court of 1898, and as such she is eligible to be a U.S. Senator, but she is not a “natural born Citizen” at birth, and thus is NOT eligible to be President and Commander in Chief of our military or the Vice President, per our U.S. Constitution. She inherited multiple allegiances at birth due to her parents being foreign nationals living in the USA when she was born. Senator Kamala Harris did not have sole allegiance and unity of citizenship at birth to the USA and only the USA.
Some other politicians besides Kamala Harris (D) in the two major political parties who have been mentioned for future election to high national political office, who are also not a “natural born Citizen” to constitutional standards are: Marco Rubio (R), Ted Cruz (R), Bobby Jindal (R), and Nikki Haley (R). Both major political parties are choosing to ignore the founders and framers intent and understanding of what a “natural born Citizen” is in order to run candidates that they believe are very marketable political candidates. This started in a major way in the 2008 election cycle with Obama vs McCain.
