  •  The original constitution doesn't define it. (1+ / 0-)

    The closest we get is the 14th amendment saying all persons born or naturalized in the US are citizens.  It's not clear to me whether the explicit intent was to define natural born, though a case could be made.  I knew someone once who was oversees with her husband on extended business, but made sure she flew back to the US when she was about to give birth so her son could be born here and thus automatically a citizen.
