Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.) said in a congressional hearing Tuesday that a young person who is an illegal alien in the United States today may someday become president.
“When I look around this room, I see America’s future, our doctors, our teachers, our nurses, our engineers, our scientists, our soldiers, our congressmen, our senators, and maybe our president,” Durbin said immediately after having asked all young persons in the room to stand if they were currently undocumented aliens who would be eligible to become citizens if the DREAM Act were passed.
Dude. I’m pretty sure no one in that group is going to be our future President. Senators & Representatives, maybe – IF, and that’s a big IF, they get legal. But President… Um… No Dude. The Constitution, in Article 2, Section 1, says that a person must be 35, and a natural born citizen (read ’em and weep Durbin) – and really, that is heart of the whole Birther thing — what defines natural born citizen. Whatever that definition… I’m pretty sure none of those DREAM ACTer’s will qualify.
