Third-Generation Immigrant is a Natural Born Citizen V2.1
By Gerry NanceThere has been a lot of discussion about
Natural Born Citizen
and what a Natural BornCitizen is. Quite simply put, and without a doubt, a Natural Born Citizen is a
Third-Generation Citizen, or more
, of an emigrant or non-citizen.The term
First-Generation
, as it pertains to a person's
nationality or residency
in acountry, can imply two possible meanings, depending on context:
Aforeign borncitizen or resident who has immigrated and beennaturalizedin a new country of residence,
or 
citizen or resident of a country whose parents
obey theprevious definition.
In the United States, after USA v Wong Kim Ark (1898):
1.
First generation immigrant
: Immigrants who migrated [emigrated] to the U.S.and became
Naturalized US Citizens
under the
Fourteenth Amendment
.These are
First-Generation US Citizens
. If a child is born in the US to two [non-immigrant] aliens [this may be an error], but the child is a
First-Generation USCitizen
under the
Fourteenth Amendment
. If a pregnant [non-immigrant] alienbirths a child in the US and, her baby is a granted US citizenship [this may be anerror], the child is a
First-Generation US Citizen. [Assuming the father is alsoa non-immigrant alien.]
These are the
US Citizens of US Constitution Article1 Section 2 and Section 3
.
2.
Second-generation immigrant
: In the United States, among demographers andother social scientists, the term "second generation" is used to refer to the U.S.-born children of foreign-born parents, or 
 
U.S.-born children of at least oneforeign-born parent. These are also
First-Generation US Citizens
under the
Fourteenth Amendment
and the
US Citizens of US Constitution Article 1Section 2 and Section 3
.
Barack Hussein Obama II
is in this circumstance.
3.
Third generation immigrant
:
U.S.-born children of two U.S.-born parents
who became
First or Second-Generation US Citizens
under the
FourteenthAmendment
, where at least one grandparent is foreign-born. These are the
Natural Born Citizens
of 
US Constitution Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5
.Barack and Michele Obama’s two daughters are in this circumstance. Of this Ihave no doubt.Seehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigrant_generations
