Will somebody PLEASE define

Will somebody PLEASE define "natural born citizen`?

Dollars and Sense Plan to End Eligibility Dispute

Will somebody PLEASE define "natural born citizen`? 

Some say it`s a person born on the soil.  Some say it`s a person born of citizen parents.  Some say the citizenship follows that of the father and the mother`s citizenship is irrelevant.  Some say the child must be born on the soil AND born of citizen parents.  So who`s right?

A birth certificate is totally useless if we don`t know the definition?

 

Sincerely,

Paul R. Smith
