although is currently accepted that if you are born on US soil then you are a US citizen. But that is not how the 14th amendment is constructed. It clearly states that people born here "and not subject to another jurisdiction..." are US citizens. Well, you your parents are foreigners then they are subject to another jursidiction (there home country) and they pass that jurisdiction on to the new born baby. Therefore, they true way to be a US citizen at birth is to have at least one parent a US citizen. And to be natural born you have to have both parents US citizens and born here.
