27. She's perfectly eligible..

Per Twitter in trending Politics

Kamala Harris is eligible to serve as US president, fact-checkers confirm.


Multiple fact-checkers, including AP, PolitiFact and Snopes, confirmed that Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, California, therefore making her a natural-born citizen of the United States and eligible to serve as both vice president and president.


(Among others):

AP:
"She was born on Oct. 20, 1964, in Oakland, California, making her a natural-born U.S. citizen. Her father, an economist from Jamaica, and her mother, a cancer researcher from India, met at the University of California, Berkeley as graduate students.

Since she was born in the U.S., she is regarded a natural born citizen under the 14th Amendment of the Constitution."


PolitiFact

The 14th Amendment of the Constitution states that "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."
