Abstract:     
Beyond serving as a criterion for presidential eligibility, the Natural Born Citizen Clause implies the existence of birthright citizenship. Adopting a "constitutional minimum" approach to the Clause, this Article further argues that the birthright citizenship so implied extends to the first generation born abroad to parents who are United States citizens.
