Gov. Jindal releases his birth certificate
Is this a trend in the making?
Gov. Bobby Jindal releases his birth certificate | NOLA.com
Gov. Bobby Jindal arrived in the United States in utero, his mother about three months pregnant.
As he wrote last year in his book, "Leadership and Crisis," his mother had been offered a scholarship in 1970 to complete a graduate degree in nuclear physics at LSU.
When she informed the university that she couldn't accept the scholarship because she was pregnant, "LSU wrote back and promised her a month off for childbirth if she changed her mind. LSU was so accommodating, and the opportunity to come to America so thrilling, that my parents accepted.
"So, my parents stepped out on faith, secured green cards, packed up a few suitcases, said their goodbyes, and took off for this exotic new place called Baton Rouge, Louisiana."
They arrived Feb 1, 1971, and a bit over six months later, on June 10, 1971, Piyush Jindal was born at Woman's Hospital in Baton Rouge, a natural-born U.S. citizen, who like every other child born in America, could, constitutionally, grow up to be president.
The issues of citizenship and immigration have become major topics in the past months, with President Barack Obama releasing his "long-form" birth certificate April 27 to quell questions about where he was born. And there is a growing movement in America, led by, among others, Sen. David Vitter, R-La., to change those rules and restrict birthright citizenship.
This is funny on so many levels!
