Yeah, a lot of countries allow it. Phillipines/US, UK/US...Aussie/US I think too.My mother is originally Swiss. She's now a naturalized citizen but still has her Swiss citizenship as well. You don't automatically lose previous citizenships.
That is the question. When you have dual citizenship you belong to two countries. Which is the "other" side to them? What guarantees they choose the US vs the other country they are a citizen of.Do you really believe people with dual citizenship would side with the other during a time of war? That is awfully paranoid of you to think that.
Seriously? So what you just told me is that you want it to be illegal to a person from the UK to come to the US, go through ALL the work to become a citizen - a process that takes OVER 10 YEARS, then wait the 7 years before qualifying to be a representative and be elected?NO To represent the people of this country 1 citizenship only , The problem is what you gett with like obummer .. Building a school im kenya with tax money . Screw that .. Obummer wants kenya to have better schools he damn well should pay for it , Not american tax payers.

First Known Use of COMPELLING
Agreed. I think the requirements to become a citizen and further requirements to become an elected official at the federal level are sufficient.It's not a matter of "being allowed" if there isn't a compelling reason to make something illegal then it should, by default, be legal. Since I can see no compelling reason to remove a politicians dual citizenship the it should be legal.
