Could a baby born to aliens from Mars become President?

Suppose a spaceship from Mars developed power problems and landed somewhere in the United States. On the spaceship is a pregnant Martian who gives birth and officials rush to give the baby citizenship papers, passport, food stamps and other welfare goodies.

Under the current misinterpretation of the Fourteenth Amendment clause “Subject to the Jurisdiction thereof” the baby would be a dual citizen of the United States and Mars. Fourteenth Amendment:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

I’m sure Jack Maskell, the intellectually challenged legislative attorney for the Congressional Research Service who has not a clue who Vattel is, would find the alien from Mars, if it hung around, eligible to be President when it turned 35 which is no more bizarre than Maskell saying Obama and Cruz are eligible although only one of their parents were citizens, so they, like the Martians, were born dual citizens.

I have no doubt Maskell would say Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal and Nikki Haley would be eligible even though neither of their parents were citizens when they were born so they too were born dual citizens. Indeed, every anchor baby in Maskell’s mind is probably eligible to be president.

The current misinterpretation of the law says locational birth trumps citizenship of the parents. How many degrees of stupid are we talking here?

For years there has been legislation gathering dust to clarify and amend the Immigration & Naturalization Act to require one parent for a child to be a U.S. citizen but the brainiacs in Washington ignore it though they number 30-40,000 births at taxpayer cost every month plus the birth tourism junkets arriving on a regular basis.

Amend the Immigration and Naturalization Act to require one parent to be a citizen for the baby to also be a citizen so we won’t be passing out citizenship to Martians, not a Natural Born Citizen, which requires both parents to be citizens.
