FIRST CONGRESS . Sess.II. Chap. 3.  1790
Chap. III. -- An act to establish an uniform Rule Of Naturalization.(a)

Section I. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States
of America in Congress assembled
, That any alien, being a free white person, who shall
have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of
two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof, on application to any common law
court of record, in any one of the states wherein he shall have resided for the term of one
year at least, and making proof to the satisfaction of such court, that he is a person of good
character, and taking the oath or affirmation prescribed by law, to support the constitution of
the United States, which oath or affirmation such court shall administer; and the clerk of such
court shall record such application, and the proceedings thereon; and thereupon such person
shall be considered as a citizen of the United States.  
And the children of such persons so
naturalized, dwelling within the United States, being under the age of twenty-one years at the
time of such naturalization, shall also be considered as citizens of the United States.  And the
children of citizens of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of
the United States, shall be considered as natural born citizens:
Provided, That the right of
citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United
States:
Provided Also, That no person heretofore proscribed by any state, shall be admitted a
citizen as aforesaid, except by an act of the legislature of the state in which such person was
proscribed
.(a)
Approved, March 26, 1790.
No Supreme Court ruling has been made to rescind this Congressional statement defining "Natural Born Citizen,"
nor has any legislation or Constitutional amendment addressed changing this Congressional statement of definition.
The "Naturalization Act of 1795" removed the words "natural born", but did not change the statement that both
parents must be citizens.  And this act alone is unconstitutional..."natural born Citizen" is a statement within our
Constitution, and therefore requires a Constitutional Amendment to change.
