Sitting Presidents who have had their citizenship questioned:

· Martin Van Buren - First Language Dutch. Was the first President Born after the Declaration of Independence.

· Chester A Arthur - Some still claim he was not a citizen, because his father was not born a US citizen.

However, when someone is born in the US, neither parent needs to be a US citizen, the baby will still be a natural born citizen (see related question about whether Pres. Obama is a legal citizen for the full requirements as stated in the US Constitution). President Obama, (born in Hawaii) has proven his citizenship. He was born in Hawaii, so even if his mother had not been a citizen (she was) he would still be one since he was born here on US soil. If not born in the US, a child with at least one parent who is a US citizen and meets the residency requirements will still be considered a natural born US citizen and eligible for the presidency, if age and other requirements are also met.

Barack Obama's birthplace has been a subject for questioners. There is a "birther" movement that drew some considerable interest. (See the related link) But Obama is not the first president to have question raised about whether he was born in the US.

· Martin Van Buren - First Language Dutch was Dutch and people thought he might have been born in Holland.

· Chester A . Arthur - born in Northern Vermont, near the Canadian border and parents lived in Canada for many years and his father was born in Ireland.

The first was Chester Alan Arthur. His father was a Canadian and her and his wife had lived in Canada before they moved to Vermont where Chester was born, However, the place in Vermont where he said he was born is very near the Canadian and some claimed that he had actually been born in Canada.

The second is Barack Obama whose birthplace was questioned by a large group without any real evidence. There were some fake birth certificates produced that showed he was born in Kenya.
