Naturalized Citizen eligibility for Office of President sign now

This petition is an appeal to the United States Congress, to draft and pass a bill calling for the modification of the Constitution of the United States of America, to allow American citizens who are naturalized as minors to be eligible to run for the office of President of the United States.

Such a change to the constitution would allow children from foreign countries that have been adopted by American citizens to be eligible to run for the office of President, if and when they meet all other eligibility requirements for the office.

Background:

Former US Senator Don Nickles (OK) sponsored Senate bill S.2128 (the "Natural Born Citizen Act",) along with co-sponsors James Inhofe (OK) and Mary Landrieu (LA). This act would move to modify the US constitution to extend eligibility for the office of President to:

"...any person born outside the United States -- who derives citizenship at birth from a United States citizen parent or parents pursuant to an Act of Congress; or who is adopted by 18 years of age by a United States citizen parent or parents who are otherwise eligible to transmit citizenship to a biological child pursuant to an Act of Congress."

Hearings were held regarding bill S.2128 by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary in October of 2004. There has been no action on this bill since that time, and Mr. Nickles, the original sponsor of the bill, is no longer a member of the Senate.

We urge the United States Senate, and specifically senators Inhofe and Landrieu to renew action on this matter.
