DOES CONGRESS KNOW THE MEANING OF “NATURAL BORN CITIZEN”…OR CARE?

I have seen NO CONGRESSPERSON raise the question about a conflict with Article II, Natural Born qualifications.
I am a school teacher, and I cannot understand HOW a DUAL citizen (in this case more…British, Kenyan, British Overseas and Indonesian) can sit in the White House.
I do not mean to be disrespectful, but I have heard nothing about this from your office, much to my regret.
NATURAL BORN (jus Soli, jus sanguinis) has been upheld by various Supreme Court decisions, so this is NOT a “fringe” concern of your constituency:
Venus, 12 U.S. 8 Cranch 253 253 (1814)
Shanks v DuPont, 28 U.S. 3 Pet. 242 242 (1830)
Dred Scott v Sandford, 60 U.S. 393 (1857)
Minor v Happersett, 88 U.S. 162 (1875)
United States v Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
Perkins v. Elg, 307 U.S. 325 (1939)
In my humble opinion, America is in a CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS and Congress has been totally ABSENT in the discourse.
Sharon Rondeau has operated The Post & Email since April 2010, focusing on the Obama birth certificate investigation and other government corruption news. She has reported prolifically on constitutional violations within Tennessee’s prison and judicial systems.
