Ancestry - Mitt Romney (natural born Citizen) by: Charles Kerchner
First Generation
1.
Willard Mitt ROMNEY (natural born Citizen of U.S.)
-17384 was born on 12 Mar 1947 in Detroit, MI, USA.
CITIZENSHIP: Natural born Citizen of the United States per definition of same pernatural law, Vattel's legal treatise "The Law of Nations or Principles of NaturalLaw", and U.S. Supreme Court decisions such as Minor v Happersett (1875), i.e., aperson born in the country to parents [plural] who are Citizens of the country.When Mitt Romney was born in the USA in Detroit MI in 1947, his parents were bothclearly recognized as being Citizens of the United States per the U.S. NationalityAct of 1940. Thus Mitt was born in the USA to parents [plural] who were bothCitizens of the country and Mitt is a "natural born Citizen of the United States"and is constitutionally eligible to be President and Commander in Chief of ourmilitary.
Second Generation
2.
George Wilcken ROMNEY (Citizen of U.S.)
-17385 was born on 8 Jul 1907 in Mexico. He died on 26 Jul 1995 inBloomfield Hills, Oakland County, MI. George married Lenore Emily LAFOUNT (Citizen of U.S.)-17386 on 2 Jul1931 in Salt Lake City, UT.
CITIZENSHIP: George Romney was a Citizen of the United States per U.S. "jussanguinis" laws going back to the founding of our nationa and also per the U.S.Nationality Act of 1940. He was born in Mexico of U.S. Citizen parents and thusGeorge Romney is a "Citizen" at birth under U.S. laws including the U.S.Nationality Act of 1940. Detractors claim that George Romney's parents legallyrenounced their U.S. Citizenship while in Mexico and thus could not pass alongtheir U.S. Citizenship by jus sanginis to their son George Romney. There isabsolutely no evidence of that. Thus George Romany was a Citizen of the UnitedStates at birth via inheriting it under U.S. "jus sanguinis" law from his father.He did not have to naturalize in later life when he migrated back to his parents'native land, the USA, since he was deemed by U.S. law to be a "Citizen" at birthsince he inherited his U.S. Citizenship "jus sanguinis" from his U.S. Citizenfather Gaskell Romney, even though George was born in Mexico. George Romney wasnot a "natural born Citizen" at birth and thus was not himself eligible to bePresident but he was a basic "Citizen" of the U.S. at birth and thus could re-enter the USA as a Citizen and did not have to naturalize later in life. He wasrecognized by all U.S. laws as a U.S. Citizen long before 1940 but the NationalAct of 1940 which clearly stated that people in George Romney's status wereCitizens of the United States at birth. That act was adopted 7 years prior to MittRomney being born in Detroit MI. Mitt was thus clearly born to two U.S. Citizensin the USA and he is a "natural born Citzen of the United States" and Mitt iseligible to be President. George was not eligible. Mitt is eligible.Re. Mexican law. The current Mexican Constitution adopted in 1917 grants Mexicannationality by virtue of birth on Mexican soil. But George Romney was born in1907 under the previous Mexican Constitution adopted in 1857. It did not

recognize only jus soli, birth on the soil only. The parents had to be Mexican togain Mexican nationality at birth. The Gaskell Romney family living as U.S.Cititzen for a time in Mexico left in 1913 due to the Mexican Revolution. NeitherGaskell nor his wife Anna ever lost their U.S. Citizenship in Mexico nor is thereany evidence that they renounced it and formally naturalized in Mexico. They werebirthright U.S. Citizens when they went to Mexico and their son George when bornthere inherited his U.S. Citizenship by U.S. "jus sanguinis" laws and they wereall U.S. Citizens when they returned to the USA in 1913. Citizens at Birth underU.S. laws such as George Romney do not have to file any naturalization paper worksince they were born to U.S. Citizen parents. Here is a copy of the relevantsection of the 1857 Mexican Constitution which was in effect when George Romneywas born in 1907.---------------------------------SECTION IIOf the mexicans30. Are mexicans:I. All persons born within or outside the territory of the Republic, from mexicanparents.II. Foreigners naturalicen in accordance with the laws of the federation .III. Foreigners who acquire real estate in the Republic or have mexican children,provided that they do not manifest the resolution to retain his nationality.----------------------------------The 1886 Mexican "Law of Alienage and Naturalisation" still maintained a the main"jus sanguinis" law but added a provision to Mexican law to grant Mexicannationality to someone born in Mexico "jus soli" if they maintained residency inMexico until the age of majority, i.e., adulthood. There was also anotherprovision in the 1886 law which provided for loss of Mexican status for extendedabsence from the country without due cause. Since George Romney departed Mexico asa child of age 5 or 6 with his parents circa 1913 when they returned to theirnative country, the USA, this 1886 law did not apply to George Romney since he didnot maintain residency in Mexico until the age of majority.
