The second of my issues that I will be covering surrounding Barack Obama’s presidency will be that of Obama being an Indonesian citizen. If he is an Indonesian citizen, or at least not renounced his allegiance to the Indonesian nation, then it precludes him from being eligible.
In 1962 when Barack was young, his mother Ann Dunham met an Indonesian student named Lolo Soetoro who was attending college in Hawaii. Soetoro and Ann were married in Hawaii, and in 1966, Soetoro returned to Indonesia followed later by his wife and Barack in 1967.
Obama then attended Fransiskus Assisi elementary school in Jakarta until 1971 with his registration document stating his name as Barry Soetoro, a Muslim who’s nationality is Indonesian. This shows that he must have been adopted by Lolo and became an Indonesian citizen with further supporting evidence of his mother scratched off Barack’s name from her Passport. As a side note, it is interesting he was registered Muslim in a Catholic institution.
Further, Indonesian law at the time did not recognize dual citizenship, meaning his U.S. citizenship was no longer recognized by Indonesia. But U.S. law would still recognize Obama as an American citizen.
Because Obama was adopted by an Indonesian and attained Indonesian dual citizenship and never renounced it, his allegiance to both the US and the foreign government puts him in a conflict requiring him to obey the laws of both countries. For a sitting US President this could be disastrous to the US nation, for as the Constitution uses the term “natural born” for a person to be President, in that it is used to mean a singular allegiance to one and only one nation. Dual citizenship contradicts this.
