28th Amendment Project 10/6/16
This storyboard does not have a description.
One who was not born in the U.S. shall be eligible to run for President after living a U.S. citizen for 35 years.
Why I should be able to run for president
Currently, to be President you have to be born a U.S. citizen, or the parents have to be citizens if you're born abroad. You also have to be at least 35 years old and had to have been living in the U.S. for 14 of those years. This is stated in Amendment XXII
Proud of the U.S. AND Spain!
What my amendment would change is if a person is born outside of the U.S. then becomes a citizen, they would have to live as a citizen for 35 years until they are eligible to run. The time spent waiting to be certified does count towards the 35 years.
"There are some kids out there who would be the perfect candidate to become president, but we're denying them that chance."
A 11-year-old girl Alena Mulhern wants to be President of the U.S. but she isn't eligible because she wasn't born a citizen and was born in China. She has made attempts to try and create an amendment herself, but it is a hard process.
An example of a politician who was not born a U.S. citizen is the Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown. She was born in Spain.
This amendment would make America stronger because as quoted from Alena Muhern, "There are some kids out there who would be the perfect candidate to become president, but we're denying them that chance."
