Video: 10-Year-Old Girl Born In China Seeks To Have 
Article II Presidential Eligibility Requirement Amended

It is pretty bad when a 10-year-old girl gets it while the entire media and political establishment undermine it.

That would be the Article II presidential eligibility requirement in the Constitution, which reads:

"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."

Alena Mulhern was born in China and raised in the United States. One day she wants to be president but can't because the Article II presidential eligibility requirement bars foreign-born persons from becoming POTUS.

This week she gave testimony before the Massachusetts State House committee seeking to change Article II.


Even since Republican-led charges that President Barack Obama was born in Kenya, the question of who is qualified and not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief has often dominated the national conversation. 
Leading Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump made an early splash in national politics trumpeting birther conspiracies that ultimately led to Obama releasing his long form birth certificate. John McCain, who was born on a naval base in Panama, and Ted Cruz who was born in Canada, have also faced sporadic questions.  
The same clause too, also doomed any presidential possibilities for Terminator-turned-California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria. Like Mulhern, Schwarzenegger has made known his desire for a Constitutional change. [...] News Mic.
