It is absolutely clear that Mitt Romney is NOT a Natural Born Citizen unless he can prove that George Romney gained citizenship from naturalization prior to Mitt’s birth in 1947.

Mitt Romney’s father George was born in Chihuahua, Mexico in 1907, the son of Gaskell Romney and Anna Amelia Pratt. Three generations of Romneys lived in Mexico because Miles Park Romney, a polygamist, moved the family there in 1884 as it became increasingly clear that the U.S. government would not tolerate polygamy in the Utah Territory.

The 1882 Edmunds Act stripped polygamists of the basic rights of U.S. citizenship, denying them the right to vote, serve on juries or hold office. Not dissimilar to current immigration raids, U.S. federal agents hunted and arrested polygamists. Polygamists were forced to leave the country or risk jail.

Miles Romney chose to leave the country, bringing his multiple wives and children with him across the southern border. In his 1902 book The Story of the Mormons, author William Alexander Linn states that the “Secretario de Fomento of Mexico” related that “The laws of this country [Mexico] do not permit polygamy,” and that the contracts for the establishment of Mormon colonies in Mexico required the same. If true, Miles Romney then knowingly arrived in direct violation of Mexican immigration law.

Utah became a state in 1896, only after laws were passed there prohibiting polygamy. While polygamy may have been illegal in both countries, the Romneys still found Mexico more to their liking. All four of George’s (Mitt’s father) grandparents would live out their days in Mexico, with Anna’s mother Dorsey being the last to die — in Chihuahua in 1929.

Gaskell and Anna (who were monogamous) were married in 1895, and according to George’s biographer Tom Mahoney, lived in Chihuahua until the height of the Mexican Revolution in 1912. Relative Junius Romney negotiated with rebel leaders to get women and children out of the colony for their safety. Anna, with Mitt’s father George in tow, fled across the U.S. border by train (with no apparent delay or search at the border). A short time later Gaskell, like many Mexican immigrants before and since, covered hundreds of miles under a hot sun, crossing by land into New Mexico.

Gaskell Romney, Mitt’s Grandfather crosses U.S. Border.

As a Mexican born immigrant, George (Mitt’s father) would do quite honorably, becoming Governor of Michigan and running for the Republican nomination for President in 1968.(Remember George Was Born In Mexico) His support for civil rights and opposition to the Vietnam War resulted in his loss to Richard Nixon. His son Mitt is of course where this post begins.

The Mitt Romney Presidential Crux.

Call upon Mitt Romney now to either post Gaskell Romney’s US naturaliztion documents (or repatriated record) or George Romney‘s US naturaliztion documents that he would have filled out and signed when he was 21 years of age, or withdraw from the presidential race as Constitutionally unqualified to take the oath of office of the presidency of the UStates.

Would George Romney's parents have been American citizens if his grandparents went outside the jurisdiction of the United States for the expressed purpose of escaping U.S. polygamy laws, and colonizing Mexico to work in the Mexican Mormon church--which work was not allowed by anyone but Mexican citizens? I read that the Mexican government considers anyone born in Mexico to be a Mexican citizen, and that George Romney was issued a Mexican birth certificate after his birth. But regardless of that, the question remains whether his parents and grandparents could still have been considered American citizens when they went to Mexico to escape being under U.S. jurisdiction and American polygamy laws. They went there to practice their polygamy unhindered, and to colonize. That's a horse of a whole different color than just being born to American citizens in another country.

If Mitt was born in the United States it really doesn't matter about his parents. Happens all the time. Called anchor babies now though. His dad isn't running for President, he is.

Actually, I never understood why they call them "anchor" babies. If you knew the actual facts of immigration laws, you would also know that any illegal citizen that has a child born in the United States cannot legally gain any type of immigration status through that said child until he or she is 18 years of age. Really don't consider that the easiest or fasted way to gain citizenship.

As far as Romney goes, as long as he himself was born a U.S. citizen, it really doesn't matter whether or not his father was.
Well Then

But the laws back then were different. George Romney (Mitts Dad) was born in Mexico. His parents and Grandparents were run out of Americans territories and stripped of their citizenship because of polygamy.
This same discussion came up when Mitts Dad ran for office and especially when he ran for President. His Dad George dropped out of the Presidential race when issues such as this surfaced again.
