A growing movement contends that since Obama has refused to release his long-form birth certificate from the state of Hawaii and since documentary evidence indicates that he may have been born in [[Kenya]], Obama is ineligible to serve as president according to the U.S. Constitution. Obama's supporters and a large swath of the [[Democratic Party]] states that Obama was born in Hawaii, and is therefore a "[[natural-born citizen]]"; they have dismissed outright the claims of the "birthers" - as they derisively call them - as a non-issue or another conspiracy theory. ==United States Constitutional requirements==The [[United States Constitution:Article II|Constitution]] states explicitly who is to be eligible for the office of president. The physical requirements are found in Article II, Section 1::''No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.''==What is "Natural Born"==The Founding Fathers in 1790 interpreted "natural born" as: :''The children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States, shall be considered natural born citizens: Provided, That the right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States''<ref> see [ Naturalization Act of 1790]</ref> See [[Natural-born citizen]] == Links == * [ NPR Archive describes Obama as 'Kenyan-born'] Also includes clips from newspapers from various African countries claiming Obama to be born in Kenya.
