After 1982, if you were born outside of the United States, you could get a Hawaii certification of live birth saying you were born overseas, but you were officially a Hawaiian the moment you were born. The certificate of live birth would indicate exactly where you were born, no matter where that was in the world.
This is because US laws on citizenship are that the children of US citizens born overseas are AUTOMATICLY US citizens. There is no requirement for the children of US citizens to be born inside the US for them to be US citizens.
How can you folks claim to know so much about Obama's birth, and yet be so ignorant of the facts?
As for Obama's birth, if he were born in Kenya, would he be a U.S. citizen? Was his mother old enough to confer her citizenship on Obama in the case of a foreign birth so that he would be a dual-citizen of Britain and the U.S., rather than a British subject only until Kenya broke away from Britain?
