The definitive case on this issue is US v. Wong Kim Ark, which makes it very clear that a person born in the United States to non-citizen parents is a natural born citizen. Minor v. Happerstett is about women's suffrage, not natural born citizenship, and the quote birthers rely on only suggests there might be a question about the natural born citizenship of the children of noncitizens. That issue was conclusively settled in Wong Kim Ark.

This is legally illiterate hogwash, the lawyer who brought this case should be cited for contempt.

US government agencies may acknowledge dual citizenship de facto, as in Obama's case, but it has no standing in American law. A citizen could not be deported, for example, on the grounds of dual citizenship in the recipient country. In the past, a draft exemption could not be claimed on the basis of dual citizenship in a neutral or enemy country. You are either an American citizen or you are not

True, but having this legal illiteracy shot down in court -- again -- will hopefully settle this nonsensical argument. Putting the final nail in this coffin as far as the courts go would be nice.

What these "two citizen parent" birthers omit from the Minor ruling is that Justice Waite said the question of whether or not Virginia was a natural born citizen was irrelevant to that case. In fact, it says so in the very next sentence after the quote cited above.

Birthers truly are the gift that keep on giving.

I wish I could be in Georgia to be in attendance for that hearing. I would stock up on popcorn.

Conservatives are still upset with the decisions of "librul activist judges" back in the 90s.

1890s.

That coffin already has a tremendous number of nails in it, and yet the birther zombies keep coming.
