It's ALREADY Started - The Elligibility Argument Has Returned.

As you all must know by now, Senator Kamala Harris was picked by Joe Biden to be his running mate.

But this blog post isn't about that. To get where we're going, let's start with the BBC:

"My name is pronounced "Comma-la", like the punctuation mark," Kamala Harris writes in her 2018 autobiography, The Truths We Hold.

The California senator, daughter of an Indian-born mother and Jamaican-born father...

Anyone want to be what's already begun?

Take a look at this from USA Today:

A post on Facebook claims Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., cannot serve as president because of her parents' citizenship.

"If (Biden) cannot serve his full term, Kamala cannot by constitutional law become President," the post reads. "She is an anchor baby, mother is from India, father is Jamaican, and neither were American citizens at time of her birth."

We've seen arguments like this before, haven't we?

Before we go any further, let's take a look at the Constitution, the 14th Amendment to be specific. It begins with this:

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.

She was born in the US. She's eligible.

Factcheck and Politifact have already posted on this.

Get used to it. You're going to have to explain this to your MAGA friends for a while.
