In their reply brief to the Court of Appeal of the State of California, 3rd Appellate district, it is ‘argued’ that:
RESPONDENT OBAMA is as much a foreigner as he is a U.S. citizen, if in fact he is one. It cannot be legally stated that OBAMA is without foreign national citizenship/allegiance.
While it is true that under British Law, our President may have been born a Citizen of the UK, or one of its variants, it is also clear that under US law, he was born on US soil and therefore a US citizen and natural born. See for instance US v Wong Kim Ark.
Thus the claim that he is disqualified because of English law is somewhat outrageous and ignores the fact that our Country separated itself from it several centuries ago. As to claims that he was adopted by Soetoro, again, these unfounded assertions have no relevance to the nationality of our President.
As to the term allegiance, it needs to be properly understood in its legal context and there is no doubt that he has no foreign allegiance by any meaning of the word.
Of course, this is irrelevant to the issue at hand, which is the dismissal of the petition for writ of mandamus.
