WUT

he's peruvian?

I never would have guessed

Hey fuzzleturtle!

Yeah, Jim was born in Peru to American parents. I have a few videos of him speaking his almost-fluent Spanish.

I wonder if being born in Peru would preempt him from running for President? I mean, McCain was born in Panama after all.

I THINK a child born to parents who are both US citizens is considered a natural born citizen, regardless of where that child was actually born

but what the hell do I know

Now if he can play a pan flute and dress up a guinea pig in a cute outfit I'd be impressed...!!

About the citizenship question, the link below goes to the relevant section of the US Code:

http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/html/uscode08/usc_sec_08_00001401----000-.html

J. Himes is a natural-born citizen as defined by the US Code because he was a citizen at birth. He can run for President.
