Was Andrew Jackson a legal US citizen?
Question by Peter: Was Andrew Jackson a legal US citizen?
Both of his parents were Irish immigrants. I really don’t know if there was an official process for naturalization back then or whether people just moved to the US and started farming. Perhaps Jackson’s father swore some kind of allegiance but I can’t see it as something women would have need to do. As far as I know, Jackson had the option to move back to Ireland as a first generation Irishman and enjoy dual citizenship. I also don’t think they actually had birth certificates at all back then, much less certificates of live birth. But then Jackson was a white guy who killed “Injuns” so he was a true American.
Could it be that these birthers just want to change the law so that “naturalized” citizens can be president so they can get Arnold in as Prez??
