Undeniable Fact: A Date with History

Wednesday, August 16, 2006

Although not well known within the U.S., there is a loophole in immigration and naturalization laws. If a child is born outside the U.S. and crosses the international dateline from west to east thereby arriving in the U.S. the day before it was born, the child will automatically hold dual citizenship in both the U.S. and the country in which it was born. This tactic is so common in China that the children have been given a special name: "Purple Babies".

Under current U.S. law, this is the only way that a person born outside the U.S. can become president. In fact, it's already happened. Who was it? One William Howard Taft.
